Playing with chains

Hi all.. This month for my blog work I decided to give myself a little challenge by creating layouts using ball chains for embellishments, as I was browsing through Sarahs goodies in the shop I came across this little bag of ball chains and it got my mind in a tizzy thinking how I could use them on my pages.

I chose to use the gorgous new range from MME Lost & Found 2, I thought these papers would compliment the chains perfectly as you will see with my first page.

I decided to use the chains for picture hangings and I think they look really effective, I love the chunkyness and the sparkle it adds to my page. Here is the list of supplies I have used for this layout. MME Lost & Found papers;
Breeze boyish plaid (I have used the reverse side for my base)
Breeze Dream - Stamped (beautiful glittered stamped paper)
Breeze Dream - Wallpaper
MME Breeze precious brads
Adorn it - Sketched alphabet
WRMK Sewn Cardstock in grass green & sky blue
Tropical Hydranga in navy blue
Ball Chains
Chalk eyes ink pad in brown

I hope you enjoy my page, more ideas for chains tomorrow.
