Here are a couple of photos of my not-so-brilliant entry in Claire's CJ. I got 'CJ fright'!!! I was so worried I would do it wrong, that whatever I did I wouldn't like! I do like the background though - trouble is all my CJ entries are similar backgrounds! It's distress inks swooshed on with sponges, starting with old paper, scattered staw, worn lipstick and lastly peeled paint. What I'm not so happy with are the clocks, which I stamped on another peice of paper and stuck on. They are not very well cut out. Stamps are from the free pack from Artistic Stamper that I got when I subscribed to 'Simply Stamping' (clock and saying), a freebie from Paper Artsy(clock with wings), gold wings are German scrap. I also like the idea of 'tempus fugit', and clocks with wings. It certainly seems to speed up as I get older!

LINDA!!!! This arrived to me today and it is great! I never do my own backgrounds like you do!!! I wish I had what you have to be able to do it! Even my other half said how good it was! So it must have been for him to take an interest!!!
