Time Flies

Hello there, Maja Fans!

I’m so glad you stopped by our blog today 🙂

How many of you have asked yourselves at the beginning of this month: “2016?! When has that 2015 gone already?!” I surely did ask myself that question many times, and particularly when I was organising my photo folders the other day. Comparing photos, especially of kids, really reminds you of the fact that time does fly and we should try to do our best not to waste it. I immediately thought of the Vintage Autumn Basics collection which is all about time 🙂 And here is my layout about time passing:


I first layered some scraps to mat the photos. I inked and distressed all the edges to get a more vintage look and add some dimension at the same time.


I added my photos: the more recent one is the main photo, and the older one is in the beautiful chipboard frame. I still can’t believe how much my younger son has changed in just one year!


I added a couple of flowers and filled the spaces with cut-out clockfaces:



To complete my design, I cut out several balloons and added them by the ones printed in the photo. I mounted them on 3D dots too to add some dimension and perspective.



Though I’m not so happy about how fast my kids grow up, I do like the  way this layout turned out 😉
