Crop-o-dile to the rescue

I’m working on a design team project using very soft, feminine paper. It’s beautiful, but I’m flummoxed, because as you know, I am surrounded by boys.
The first page featured DH. I’m not exactly happy with it, but I think it kind of works.
I have been playing with photos of my absolutely adorable niece Abby, and I might end up doing something with her on a page.
But moments ago I came up with this …
I have some corrugated metal knocking around my scrap space from six months ago. I’ve tried to do something with it and it never worked for me, so I ended up hanging it up on my wall in hopes inspiration would hit.
Today it did.
I used one of the rubons, the metal, my spiffy new Crop-o-dile (a hole punching, eyelet setting tool) and one of the tags from the kit to make this piece. I don’t know if I’ll end up putting it on a card or a layout, but I love the mixture of metal and flourishes on it.

How we love new gadgets! Having fun with the crop-o-dile! It sounds like it should be a cropping tool, not an eyelet setter. Well, whatever it looks cool.

how does dh like it?

Hey...speaking of gadgets...I actually ordered $70 worth of rubber stamps, and a corner rounder the other day! (me and stamps, huh?)
