As Time Goes By

Hi everyone.  I don't know about you, but I feel like my kids are growing up far too quick.  It only seems like yesterday that I was holding my now nine year old in my arms!

When I saw Echo Park's new Victoria collection, it got me all sentimental and my layout today is somewhat appropriate for me at the moment - where is the time going???  I particularly like the sticker sheet with this collection :-

I've used a selection from the sticker sheet on the background.  Cut out a few simple elements from the papers and doodled around.  I've covered an old chipboard frame I found lurking around with the Garden Gate paper to frame the two pictures.

I've also used Tim Holtz Idea-ology Spinners, but I've set them in the position of the arms of a clock.

Check back tomorrow, for another piece of work from me, which will be my last for Sarah's Cards as sadly I've had to make the decision to leave the DT :(  Its been absolutely fantastic and I've loved every minute of being on this DT.  Sarah, Lianne and the girls are the loveliest!

Well if I'm honest I think it is one of the worst decisions you've ever made, and I think you should reconsider right now, immediately straight away!!! I'm going to miss you on the team, but you better still come cropping with us... we know where you live!!!
Love the LO, I'm kind of going through the same feeling at the moment as it's fast approaching the time for Drew to go to nursery :oLove the paper you have used... I want that lampost as a stamp!
