Where has the time gone? Christmas layout for Gina's Designs

 Hi! Lynne here hoping you're all well and enjoying this busy but happy time of year; this week I created a layout with a photo of my son just before his third birthday (he's almost 23 now!). The Skeleton Clock and hands seemed so appropriate since I was thinking about how time has flown by and how much has changed     in our lives since then.

I painted the chipboard pieces with acrylic paint and they looked nice like that, but then decided to add gold heat embossing for a tone-on-tone textured finish and was so much happier with the finished look.

I had this page finished and waiting on my worktable to be photographed when my two kittens decided it would be fun and exciting to pull everything off! Fortunately they didn't damage anything, but believe me, they're definitely on Santa's naughty list right about now!! Think I'll be finding microbeads in my scraproom for months...sigh!!

Oh well, I wouldn't trade those furbabies for anything-have a terrific day and capture those memories; time really does fly by!!
