First I want to say Thank You to all of you for the many emails and comments left on my blog. I appreciate all your well wishes and concerns. I am on the mend and feeling better and will be back to scrapping more...Soon! :) Thank you!!
This was a really fun layout to do. I love the look of the aluminum foil border embossed with the tread plate embossing folder...perfect for a male layout. I really like how deep of an embossed image you get with the foil. I did put 3 layers of foil together to give a little more sturdiness.
I just happen to have the perfect "manly" brads to set everything off. Base Camp Cricut cartridge was used for the font. I plan to add a second page to this and show better pics of his truck. He looks sooooo small standing next to it. :)

Thanks to all for the wonderful comments.
I found the brads at Hobby Lobby and it was just posted that some Michael's have them too.
The diamond tread plate is a Cuttlebug embossing folder.
The foil is just regular Reynold's aluminum foil...tear a a good size sheet and fold it several times to add layers for sturdiness. I folded mine three times...then run through embossing machine. Of course you have to keep moving your embossing folder down and running back through the machine until your entire strip of foil is embossed.
