Time Has Flown - The One That Almost Wasn't

It's true that time has flown by and oh so quickly.  Here it is the end of June, summer is upon us and how quickly the months have passed.  I started this canvas mid month when I saw the current challenge at Scrap Africa, Challenge No. 30 Use Your Stash.  Great challenge given that I have been trying to clean up  my scrapbook room and have come across so many of those long forgotten papers and embellishments.  I used some 7 Gypsies scraps of papers along with some My Minds Eye Fly Away collection and bits and pieces of old Basic Grey embellishments. I dug deep into my flower box and found lots of flowers from collections of long ago.

And you ask why in my title I have "The One That Almost Wasn't?"  Like I said I started this mid month.   Have been super busy at work and putting in some very long days and would work on this a few minutes every evening when I had a little free time.  I did a lot of masking, misting, stamping and painting.  My first time using 13 Arts paints and have to say I love them!!!  So rich and creamy!♥

Thanks for stopping by!
