2 stop time...




Hi there!  Its challenge #34 over at punky scraps and this time we have a great sketch by Camilla. 

When I saw the squares, pressed tin came to mind.  So I embossed foil tape with some embossing tools that my mom handed down to me...I think they are from the stone age but they did the job!  Below is a picture of one of them.
       Needless to say, I have put in a special request for a big shot for my birthday coming up!


This page is of my son this last spring.  We just celebrated his 5th birthday 2 weeks ago and I was really struggling with how fast time has gone!  I was looking through old pics and it really broke my heart to think of some of the mistakes I've made being a first time mom...the poor kid has had the bad end of the deal while I've learned this whole parenting thing! 


I've used lots of wire, eyelets, and gold and silver embossing powder to stick with the metal theme.  The Cogs and angel wings are from Scrapfx.  I altered them with embossing powders and distress ink. 

Here area  few close ups:
 The journaling is hard to see in the background.  It says, ""You are growing too fast. I sometimes look back and wonder where the time went, and how I could have made the moments more memorable.  I just want you to know how much I love you, and how proud I am of the little man your becoming!"
