Kraft it Up

I struggled with this colour combo of green, kraft, white and black.  I've doodled around the edge of the page with the green and black mimicking the lines around the outside of the clocks and I've distressed the edge of the photo to expose some white as a rough border.
Products Used:
ScrapFX Chevron template
Stampin' Up Kraft cardstock
Kaisercraft patterned paper, clock transparency and paint
Tattered Angels Glimmermist
Alphas from Amy Tangerine

Button from a RAK I received

Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge

I haven't done a lot on this layout because I spent my time on the important journaling about this very special lady in my life - I love her to pieces because she always took the time to spend teaching me things and she had so much trust in me as a nine year old.  I think she was the inspiration for all of my crafting and also for me wanting to become a mum.

A bit of bragging

Firstly I'd like to say I won a prize over at   I won with my Jetty layout, it was an exciting way to scrap and I'd like to thank Helen for her creative challenges.

Secondly, I 'd like to share a treasure I found today in a little country 'op shop', it cost me $1.00.  It's self explanatory when you see it!!!  I purchased it to cut up and use in scrapping but I just love flicking through the pages and reading the words of wisdom.  On reflection, it's no use buying something and if it doesn't get used and gets left on the shelf the purchase was in vain so I've decided to use it soon......... It dates back to 1963.
