Beth Likes This

Altered Clock: "Always Make Time to..."
Journaling: Always make time to... share, be silly, play, savour, hug, explore, rest, talk

Most people who see this don't really know its a clock till I point it out to them - haha.... (Husband asked how come scrapbookers always have to make things look so complicated ("chao pattern" were his exact words)). Beth likes this project - she likes to look at the little pictures.

Idea to Share
(just one):
To get the 'curled up edge on the cardstock, just spritz some water on the edges and roll upwards wih with fingers. You're gonna say this is gross, but I was just thinking that if you didn't have any water around, you could probably do this with your mouth / saliva, perhaps even chewing the edges a bit for that 'extra distressed' look - haha. Hmmm..... I bet its safe cos acid-free right?

Then while the edges are still damp, you can dip it in a little gold embossing powder and emboss the edges so they get a nice old 'crusted' edge. Very 'piratey'.

K. Have a good time this weekend!
