Time Traveler

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.
Making Memories, Celery, Brown, and gold paint, Chestnut Roan Ink, Prima Flowers ( Summer Carnation Lemon) and others, Studio 490 - Pocket Watch, KaiserCraft - Frame, Maya Roads Ribbon; EK Success pearls; Zva Flourishes
