time flies 39

Mona Pendleton | Sunday, August 10, 2014 @ 2:24 AM | , , ,


 Hi there! I hope you have a terrific weekend! I'm so happy to be joining along with the current Vintage Journey challenge where the theme is "time flies"
I scrapped a photo of Connor that was taken 14 years ago on his very 1st day of Kindergarten. It doesn't seem possible that he has not graduated from high school and that we will be moving him into his dorm within the next few weeks! time sure flies!!!
 I combined beautiful Pion Design patterned papers from the For Father collection along with a variety of Tim Holtz dies including the: gears and cogs, flowers (blue), a clock face and wings. To give the pieces an aged look, I applied various colors of Distress Stains and Vintage Photo embossing powder:

 All three blue flowers were made using Pion Design paper and Tim Holtz dies. For a little added interest, I applied metallic Distress Stain to the edges of the flowers:
 For sketch inspiration, I joined along with the Stuck?! challenge:
Many thanks for stopping by ~ I hope you have a great Sunday!
Be Sweet ;)
