It’s all about time

Over at Try it on Tuesday our challenge for the next 2 weeks is It’s all about time.

For this challenge I was inspired by the time I have spent this month celebrating my hubby’s birthday and also our wedding anniversary. I hope are inspired to join our challenge too; it would be lovely to see you there!

The background was a wallpaper sample detailing a large clock face, roses and the words “Take time to love the little things”; it was stuck in place using a glue stick and then cut to size, and I collaged the remnants together to create the panel on the left-hand side of the page. I also added more detail to the rose images using a white Uniball gel pen so they stood out more. Next I stamped the two clock faces onto some design paper by American Crafts using black Archival Ink and a couple of stamp sets by Kaisercraft. I cut them out and arranged them onto the page with some silver roses and circles which were outline stickers and a quote from a Kaisercraft sticker sheet which reads “Love the time we spend together”. To finish, I fussy cut the two butterflies from the wallpaper sample and stuck them onto the page.

For more inspiration please pop over to Try it on Tuesday and take a look you at the wonderful It’s all about time creations from our Guest Designer and my Design Teamies too (grin!).

As T Stands for Tuesday and we’ve been out celebrating, I’m sharing our drinks and meal that we enjoyed for our wedding anniversary (time sure does fly, we celebrated 33 years of marriage this year!). My hubby had chicken with black pudding in a mustard sauce and I had a warm bacon and chicken salad; I couldn’t eat all mine so we had some for lunch the next day (grin!).

Cheers and Happy T Day!

  1. I was blown away by the beautiful wallpaper sample. It is absolutely stunning. I love it all. I especially love the clocks you stamped, but it all is stunning.

    Happy belated 33rd wedding anniversary. Quite a feat in this day and age. Your meals look wonderful and I bet your beers and water went down well with those meals. They look so good, too. Thanks for sharing the lovely Time inspired art and your meals and beers with us for T this Tuesday, dear Jo.

  2. Your journal page is fabulous, love the romantic feeling you have created. And BIG congratulations on your anniversary, 33 years is a long time to be happy together. Here’s to the next 33 years! Glad you were able to go for a meal. Black pudding is not something I like, my husband used to love it, but your meal sounds very tasty. Have a great week, hugs, Valerie

  3. What a romantic page this time around Jo. This is a beautiful take on time. I love how you tied it to your anniversary. Happy belated 33! It is amazing how time flies, isn’t it? Your meal looks delicious too, and you are right, it even looks huge in the photo. But leftovers are the best, aren’t they? I hope all is well, and you’re having a happy T day. Hugs-Erika

  4. Congratulations (belated) on your birthday and on your 33rd wedding anniversary! No wonder your journal page about Time has a romantic feel to it. It’s very beautiful.
    Your meal looks gorgeous. Yes, the salad looks like I wouldn’t be able to eat it all in spite of the fact that it does look very delicious.
    I happen to have a glass of Prosecco in my hand (left over from when my friend was here and I can’t let that go to waste) so cheers to you two! (Nice photo by the way).
    Happy T-Day,
