Very Groovy 80's crop!

It's time for our Awesome 80's crop and I'm really excited about my crop challenge for you all!

My challenge will be about Heavy Metal. My husband was a HUGE fan of all the various metal and hair bands from the 80's. Soooo, show us your best metal!

I actually got 41 eyelets (some of there are double set) and used two different metallic papers. The background is red velvet paper that reminds me so much of Ashley's coat.

The particulars: You must use at least 13 metal elements on your page! Your page must be a minimum size of 8x8; and should use at least one metal colored or metal "flavored" background paper! (Think blingy type paper, paper that looks like metal, etc... I used handmade gold metallic paper that was embossed and black steel cardstock).

Upload your layout to the gallery of your choice no later than midnight the 14th and link me here in my blog! I'll assign numbers (1 through whatever...) to each layout link and pick a number via a random generator. The winner will be announced here on the 15th. Wanna see what you could win? Check this out!

There's embossed paper, glitter paper, cardstock, glitter brads, chipboard, vellum phrases, flowers, rhinestones, decorator brads and, in true groovy style, a groovy banadana to wear while you're cropping! Click on the photo to get a really good look ya'll!

Don't forget to check out the next Groovy Gal blog, Lynnette's blog for the next challenge. Links to her blog and the blogs of the other Groovy Gals are in my sidebar. Don't forget to check it out where all the fun began at If It's Groovy blog for so many other groovy challenges! There's something for everyone!

Here are the awesome submissions I've had for my challenge. Thanks to everyone who sent in a layout! I love them!

Here are some of the creations I've made for other's in the crop!
Celina (Use a slogan from the 80's)

I used this slogan: Fatherhood: Not just a job; but an adventure.
(Hey - anybody know who that was REALLY a slogan for?)

Here is Jill's challenge (using a band from the 80's create a title or theme for your layout)

This is called Precious Time after a song by one of my all time favorite bands, Journey, by the same title. The journaling is the first verse of the song.

Genie's challenge is all about excesses. The 80's was a decade of everything to extreme's. So here is my project. I used an overload of chipboard on this altered item.

And here's my layout for Lynnette's challenge! We had to create a layout about our favorite fad, toy or icon. I will always love Cabbage Patch babies!

Amy's challenge is all about BIG HAIR. We all remember the big hair days of the 80's. The bigger the better. I was one of those gals who didn't go big. Never did. Never really thought I looked good in it. BUT! Have no fear. I've got a big hair photo for you guys! This is our little guy who was determined to have BIG HAIR for Wacky Hair day during Spirit Week at his Elementary school this past February.
