Beach Charm Exchange and Imaginsce May Challenge using Imaginisce and Memory Box

Wow, I have never done a charm exchange before but after I got my charms made I didn't know how to send them. I decided I would make some fun tags to attach them to and send them out that way, can't wait to see the charms I receive in exchange.
Also, Imaginisce is having a challenge and the criteria is:
1.)create a masculine themed layout/card/project
2.)use one of our Snag'Em Stamps from any Imaginisce collection
3.)you must use at least 75% of Imaginisce product
So I am entering my tags into the contest because I made a few extras to use as gifts for my the men in my life.
The tag is made with a Tim Holtz Movers and Shapers that I cut out using my Big Shot and white cardstock.
I then stamped the tag background with Memory Box Vintage Record Sheet and Black Memento Ink. My edges are distrested with Pumice Stone, Broken China, Mustard Seed and Shabby Shutter.
The cute Blowfish is one of Imaginisce Snag'em Stamps, stamped with Memento Black Ink and colored with G12,G14,R83,R85 and Boo Copic Markers. I then fussy cut them out with my scissors and added Glossy Accent to the eyes to give them dimension. After the Glossy Accent was dry I placed it on with the tag with pop dots. I got my charm pieces from Hobby Lobby and Michaels out of their jewelry department. The pink charm is to represent a flower lei that you might recieve at the beach along with some metals; fish, butterflies, dragonflies, etc.
