This layout is one that I did for The Crafty Scrapper Design Team. My friend Patty picked the papers, etc. up for me while I was on vacation. It took me a week to figure out exactly what I needed to do. The papers are from Bo Bunny and it had a very heritage feel to them. So, I finally thought of my grandmother Louise. I love her photo of when she was 9 and then I decided to had a photo of her today at age 99. Hince the title "Time Traveler". Since she is 99 she has seen so much in her lifetime that I thought it would be a perfect title. I cut out the second paper and distressed it and then I sewed around it to give an older look. I then inked it all with Chestnut Roan. Bo Bunny also had a page of die cuts which I used as the background for her little photo. While I was in Waxahachie, Texas, at The Crafty Scrapper, I found the little pocket watch piece. I then found from KaiserCraft the little photo to place her today picture. I used Brown dabber, then I dry brushed it with Making Memories celery green and gold paint. I loved doing this for it really shows off the photos. On the pocket watch I added a butterfly, leaf, cherub, and a curly q!! I also cut out a small piece of paper and inked it and placed on it as well. I was given the ribbon (wish I knew who made it) and added orange pearls from EK Success. The flowers are Prima. I then added "Louise" and little butterflies that I have had for some time.
Materials Used: Bo Bunny Et Cetera Stampled paper, Bo Bunny Et Cetera Geography, and Die cut paper.
