My Great Great Grandfathers Hat

This is my youngest grandchild Colby.  He found a hat that belong to my grandfather who was born in 1904. He passed away in 1986 but my grandmother is still with us today.  She is 100 years old!! Wow!!  He loves this hat plus he was eating a chocolate cookie and it seems he left a lot of it on his face!  

I used various papers - front and back - plus distress it and then inked.  I added a clock and took inks and added brown and blue.  I found various other items in my stash and brought it all together.

Here is a close up of the various items that I used.  I had a light bulb that I have had for about 6 years and thought it would work on this layout.  It is amazing what I find when I start looking around!

Here are the flowers that I used.  The top blue one needed a center and looking through my stash I found this cute little monkey button.  LOL  So, I placed it there!

Please see below the list of items that I used:

BoBunny - C'Est La Vie Colleciton - Decoupage Paper
BoBunny - C'Est La Vie Collection - Creme De La Creme Paper
Melissa Francis - Dotted Draft Paper
Maya Roads - Large Alphabet Letters, Crochet Flowers
Petaloo - Flowers
Prima - Flowers
Tim Holtz - Distress Ink - Vintage Photo, Blue Ink, Clock Die Cut, Skull, 
Light Bulb
