My "More Than Words" Challenge
August DT Reveal

 Hi there friends, thanks for stopping by the the blog today.
Here I have my DT reveal for the August challenge over at the 
More Than Words  challenge Blog.

Our August challenge is all about VINTAGE !!
 So this month our challenge word is "YESTERDAY".
Either use the word somewhere on your project or take inspiration from it.
I think the photo I have used embraces the word yesterday.

Our creative challenge is "VINTAGE".
I don't think vintage takes any explanation. 
I think my entire layout is a salute to yesterday & vintage. 

For my layout I have scrapped this photo of my mother in law who passed
away back in 2003. She really was a wonderful woman. This pic was taken
 when she was in her twenties so that makes it somewhere in the nineteen thirties.

The papers & flowers I have used are all from 49 and Market.

All these gorgeous chippies I have used are from 2Crafty Chipboard.

You can see here the way I have tied my layout in string, like a parcel. 
I have only ever done this with string once before, & that was a few years ago,
so I thought I would try it out again.

An old crotched doiley, old sheet music & old book pages.
Some clock faces, & even my chipboard is "skeleton clock faces"
because I always think that clocks are symbolic of time.

A little bit of background work with stencilling, 
light stamping & some scattered Prills for texture. 

Well there you have it, another layout completed.
I hope you can find some time to play along with us this month over at
More Than Words challenge blog too.
As always we have EIGHT fabulous prizes on offer too.

Until next time.
