A Braddy Layout

Hi! I'm out of school for Presidents' Day today (just a weather day, really) and I completed a layout for the Frosted Designs Fabulous Friday Challenge to use brads or eyelets on your project! You can find the challenge here.
I have had this Jillibean Soup "Chicken Soup" paper for what seems like a while (some of it over 6 months, then I bought some more goodies to match back in Nov./ Dec.) with scrapping our animals in mind. Well, we got baby goats January 31st (on a Tuesday) and the momma died the following Saturday. :( So now we have little orphan goaties. We feed them formula in baby bottles now. I thought this paper was "appropriate" for this page. 
It's kinda funny... I started out with a TOTALLY different approach to this layout, then I decided I didn't like it and just made it up as I went along! This is my first layout that I really like how I layered everything. (Maybe I AM finally getting the hang of it!)

Patterned Paper: Jillibean Soup
Cardstock: Stampin' Up!, The Paper Studio
Brads: The Paper Studio, Target, American Crafts
Letter Stickers: Making Memories, Jillibean Soup (question mark: American Crafts)
Buttons: Michael's, American Crafts, other
Pen: American Crafts
Stickers: Jillibean Soup
Other: Burlap

In all, I used 23 brads on this layout! Wow! What a stretch for me; I hardly ever use brads!

I really love your layering on this one too Heather!! I have that same paper with the sunflowers and it is so cute! Awesome job with the brads and I love the little tiny ones that you used for the flower centers on your journaling tag.

Great LO! I love all the brads on that paper. (Must have been quite a heavy LO when it was finished! lol)
I love it when I have a chance to use some brads or eyelets. It adds a great touch to a page.
