Time Flies!

I am so excited to share with you my first layout as a member of the  
Frosted Designs Fabulous Friday Design Team!

This Friday's challenge is to use postage stamps, envelopes, and/or tickets. I used beautiful papers by Graphic 45 who is sponsoring the fabulous prize at Frosted Designs this week. The pictures are of my daughter Robin on her first birthday and of her son Jacob on his first birthday 26 1/2 years later, both sitting in the same little chair!
Here are some close-ups:

You can click on the photos to enlarge them for a closer look if you like!

I used this sketch from Stuck On U Sketches and have entered my layout in their sketch challenge.

The Graphic 45 papers I used are from the Christmas Emporium Collection and the Botanicabella Collection. 
Additional products include: 
Letters: "Time Flies": American Crafts Thickers Nutmeg
Journaling Font: Calibri
Ink: StazOn- Rusty Brown, Versafine- Vintage Sepia, Tim Holtz Distress Ink-Brushed Corduroy and Tim Holtz Distress Stain- Scattered Straw.
Clock Stamp: Hero Arts
Bingo Card: Jenni Bowlin
Flourish Die: Sizzlits
Butterfly Punch: Martha Stewart
The postage stamps in the upper right corner are real - cut off mail I received at home!
The ephemera I used came in a kit I received as a prize so I don't know who the manufacturer is.

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog, I'd love for you to comment on my post and to become a follower!
I hope you will join us in making a project using postage stamps, envelopes, and/or tickets and link it up over at Frosted Designs!
