Photo Opportunity

Wowzers....another Friday....how time flies when you're having fun!!!! Why do the summer days go by so much more quickly than the others.....truly fleeting!!!
This week @ SOUS we have a fabulous 2 page sketch....lots of fun for lots of pix! I took advantage of the layout to use the recent pix from a photo shoot I had with Mcauley at the local university lake. Lots of old papers here....DCWV Once Upon A Time stack, some sheet music and some book pages.
The clock is welded onto a lamp post in DS...both from Graphically Speaking, fence and marquee from Heritage, leaves are Paper Doll Dress Up and the flourish from Storybook.

Heritage is once again the cartridge used to cut this fun camera which fit perfectly with my layout title.

Aren't these gorgeous roses just to die for? A gift from Floren @ Generations Crafting...you gotta check her out girls...the best deals ever....click on her icon on my sidebar and give her a little visit. The clock is set @ 6:11,the date the photos were taken.
somemore beautimus flowers!
Mcauley is standing by a lamp post in the photo...so I thought why not continue the theme onto the page....I topped my lamp off with a cut from Heritage.....I folded it to give it a dimensional look and then added vellum to look like 'glass'...pop dotted to give the 3D feel. More Paper Doll Dress Up vines.
You can see that I used a mask on the corner of the paper....it is a clock and I sprayed it with some Tim Holtz ink watered down in a spray mister. The charm attached to the fiber says 'reach for the moon'.
My dragonflies are cut from Lyrical Letters...I added some vellum wings which are coated with stickles.....various adhesive gems are added for body and eyes!
Hope you enjoyed the layout...thanx for stopping by! Have a fabulous weekend!
