Tim Holtz Embossed Grungeboard bracelet

As usual, I'm a day later than planned when posting.  Yesterday, every time I sat at the computer to post this, we'd get an electrical about bad timing.  Today the sun is shining here in Medicine Hat, Alberta, (but there are some gray clouds looming to the north, so I'd better type fast, hehehe.
In my last post, I promised to share with you a lovely project created by Diana Ramsey, one of my stamping friends and customers.
She sent me a couple of pictures of bracelets that she has made using Tim Holtz Grungeboard and  Hitch Fasteners. According to Diana, they can be also be made with Tim Holtz Grungepaper, but they aren't as sturdy, and may not take as much wear and tear as the Grungeboard bracelets.  Diana saw the idea for the bracelets using grungeboard at SplitCoastStampers website.
She's embossed some of them using embossing folders, stamped on some, and, in true 'Diana' style, she's done a beautiful job embellishing with paints, inks, crystals, etc.  Tim Holtz 'hitch fasteners' work perfectly for decorative closures.  The pictures below show how Diana has personalized these unique bracelets.  I think the young gals will love these, a great summer project that will go great with Blue Jeans, denim shorts, etc...

With all of the inks, paints and embellishments available to us now, we can have bracelets to 'go with' every outfit....

Thanks Elaine for your kind words about my bracelets. Only one thing I would change in your wording...
these aren't just for teenagers. My 52 year old niece has 3 of
them and I am 74 and I wear them, and so does my 81 year old sister...LOL!

These bracelets are so much fun to make -especially as you can choose your own colours and styles.
