Measure Time In Moments

Sometimes a picture says it all.  That's how I feel about the one I used on my layout.  It's of my grandfather and uncle dating back to 1928.  I'm not sure of the story behind it, and my mother wasn't born until 1933, so to me it is a moment in time of a father and son sharing a special time together.

I used bits and pieces from my June kit from Artful Delight!  I love the Fancy Pants Its The Little Things papers that came in the kit and I used every last little scrap I had of it.  I even used the packaging backing from the Prima flowers.
I have been in the process of cleaning out and organizing my scrapbook room and came across a container full of rub ons that I forgot I had.
I love the bold  American Crafts Thickers , Jewelry Box in Black  that came in the kit, combined with the rub ons.

I added a few stickers from Echo Park's For The Record collection and cut out some clouds from Fancy Pants Spring Fever paper:

and added some banners from Lily Bee's This And That.

If you would like to order the June kit there are still a few left.  You can order them here,
or if you would like a chance to win the June kit, create a layout using the June sketch and enter it over at Artful Delight.

Thanks for stopping by!
