August Scrap Our Stash Challenge: It's About Time

When Deb announced that the August Scrap Our Stash challenge would be "time will tell," I knew that I wanted to use my now-retired Close To My Heart stamp set, Key Moments, with its clock and keys.  It took me a bit to find some pictures to show the passage of time, but the one of my sister and me reading really jumped out at me.  I found pictures of my girls also reading and a layout was born.

This layout uses a great sketch from the CTMH Magic how-to guide.  I started with the NEW Scholastic paper pack, plus the NEW Approved stamp set.  Of course in keeping with the theme of Scrap Our Stash, I used my Old World Alphabet and Universal Backgrounds stamp sets too.  The embellishments are also a mix of old and new: Timeless Charms (retired), Milestones corrugated cardboard shapes, Durables Studs, and Dark Chocolate striped grosgrain ribbon.

My sister and me, circa 1981.  I have no idea why my cheeks were puffed up like that!  I must have been thinking hard, trying to solve that Nancy Drew mystery.
My girls also love to read- anywhere and everywhere!  We seem to have books everywhere around the house.

Now, we challenge you to Scrap (Y)our Stash and share your timely project with us!


  1. What a fun way to chronicle what we all experience...time marching on. Great memories. Good job...

  2. Awesome job on this layout challenge! I adore the products you used. The embellishments are perfect!


Thanks for taking the time to visit and leaving me a comment!
