Scrap the Boys October Challenge "Your New Shoes"

Hi everyone. Here is my layout I have just done for the current challenge over at "Scrap the Boys". This months criteria was to include "handmade embellishments". Hence I have made my little Banner, I have stamped & made all these little tickets & I've tied a knot in some material  that I have  attached  to my cogs.
Now, I have a fabulous NEW toy. It is an electric edge distresser by Zutter called "Distrezz-it-all". It  cost me a fortune, can't get them here, but WOW, I have to say it is fabulous. (I have used it along the top edge of the page). If ever you get a chance to have a go at one I would highly recommend you give it a try.  It is sort of like running an electric saw along the edges of your paper. It really is an extreme edge  distresser. Does one side in about five seconds. Love love love it, but then again,  I really like distressed edges.

I have also Glimmermisted, sewn, border punched, stamped & flung lots of paint around. I used this yummy chippie wire mesh from Dusty Attic & steampunk cogs by Twiddleybitz. I am rather happy with my end result. Hope you like it too. Until next time.    Cheers Di  xx
