A Special Day

I have been holding onto these Bo Bunny Timepiece papers and these Dusty Attic Cogs because I was planning to scrap something of my boys. But NO, look what I did with them!!!

It sounds a bit odd but I had an idea in my head but didn't know exactly how or what.......LOL. So I just started cutting and went from there, I cut the diecut into three pieces, stuck the first down (the ornate frame of the diecut) then stitched some lace all the way around. The 'middle' piece of the diecut has some Distress Crackle paint and I used 3D tape to adhere it to my layout. The 'centre' piece I adhered and added some muslin, my photo, a clock and our wedding date. Everything is inked and to finish it off I added some Prima and a Kaisercraft flower with a Dusty Attic butterfly and of course my cogs, a bit of sparkle to my butterfly and some dimensional pearls to my layout. I had fun with my chippies again so here are some close ups.

So I am really happy how this turned out and I had heaps of fun to! Thank you for popping by and for your lovely comments, hope you have a fabulous weekend :)
