How old are those EYELETS in the box?

First of all, I am sharing the layout that made me SCRAPBOOK ADDICT OF THE MONTH (March) at SCRAPBOOKERS ANONYMOUS!
Thanks ladies for this award and the fun challenges every month!




You can see the original post HERE!


Now to April Challenge at Scrapbookers Anonymous
This time is to use at least 23 eyelets in your project, fun huh???


I have this box of eyelets for the longest time, one thing I am sure is that they are at least more than 9 years old because I had them before I moved to New York City. When I saw this month's theme, I can't wait to get started.......



I have to admit that I am not very good at those eyelets, I either tear the paper up or smash the eyelet, well, 23 of them, I get a real good practice this time..... LOL!


I used 16 on the left and 7 on the right, YAY!! I used up 23 pastel eyelets from that box, many more to go......


me and my one and only brother when we were young....


I am using Pixie Dust Paperie March Kit "Floribunda" here....


I just love the DP in this Pixie Kit......


These pastel eyelets are too fun to play with.....


ya, I did make a few unwanted hole on the DP, but I covered them up with tiny butterflies.....


I must be around 2+ in this photo....



Alright, your turn to dig out those eyelets and join the fun over at Scrapbookers Anonymous!

I hope you have a lovely weekend filled with lots of fun, I am off to San Francisco for my kind of fun, food, baseball game at my favorite stadium, and then food and another baseball game! whew....... it has been a long time since I last traveled, can't believe that I used to lived in a suitcase, what have Vegas done to me????
