Time flies, memory remains

Living far from my family gives me chances to miss them, and to think about how much they mean to me. My mom, daddy, and my beloved brother. Yes, I miss them so much. Okay, enough with these sentiments..haha..

I'm making a page that shows my childhood. It was a nice moment and a wonderful togetherness. Fortunately, I brought some old photos..and...I buy a new stack of paper! Yeyy!!! Thankful for this online shopping era :) I buy Tattered Time stack from DCVW. It is a very very great all the pages. This page contain some new things for me, such as glitter accent and recycle-paper flowers. So, here's my page, called "Time flies, memory remains," with romantic vintage yet girly theme. Please enjoy.
The paper itself is already marvelous, so I don't have to squeeze my brain to think about layout. The picture taken when I was 4,5 years old, so it was 25,5 years ago! Wow, time really flies...
This is the part I love the most: chipboard with glitter! Recently I buy lots of glitter, thanks to my friend whose bring them far form Jogja :) I think next I'm gonna make a lot of pages with glitter on it.

I cut pages into small tags, make a hole at center top, then tie with lace. I colored the lace with distress ink. Then I cut photos into small pieces and adhere to tags. It's a new creation from me :) And cause I'm a "daddy-girl," I make my dad's photo special for this page..haha.
Here's another new thing: I made my own flowers. Like I said in my previous post, I'm starting to run out of lowers. So I tear some pages of old magazine (actually it's my friend's magazine..sorry..LOL), cut into petals shape, coloring it with acrylic paint, glue each petal layers, and add embellishment at center top. Voila! Here comes my recycle-paper flowers. And other recycling thing is an almost thrown away cardboard piece that I use in this layout.
The title. I made from cutting paper and Dymo label makers. It gives more romantic vintage nuance. Hope you like it :)
