Scrap Africa Sketch Challenge #30 and Prima 'Time Traveler'

Hi everyone!  Just a quick post to share the new Sketch Challenge over at Scrap Africa with you.  It's another gorgeous sketch designed by the very talented Denise Van Deventer.
My take on the sketch using the beautiful Prima 'Time Traveler' collection.  I was lucky enough to receive this collection in my May DT kit from The Scrapbook Store.  The photo was taken on my parents' wedding day in 1959.  I have added my journaling on the back of the layout.
A close up showing some of the stencil work. I've used the Crafters Workshop Mini 'Live Love Laugh' and Mini 'Art Is' templates together with texture paste mixed with black Shimmerz Paints.
 I love the little Prima resin angels. :)  All the flowers are from the 'Time Traveler collection.
 The title is a wood veneer word from WOW.
The chipboard leaves and word strips are from the TSS chipboard collection.
I hope you get a chance to play along with the sketch.  I would love to see your entry!  To get all the details and to see the rest of the Design Team's gorgeous examples, take a look HERE.

I have also created another layout using the Prima 'Time Traveller' collection.  This time I teamed it up with photos of Thandi, our Dachshund puppy taken in 2007. :)  I've cut one of the patterned papers into strips and used it to weave a background for my photos.
 A close up to show more of the weaving.  If you were wondering... Thandi is the Zulu word for 'precious'. :)
The leaves were cut using the Poppy Stamps 'Small Marianna Vine Outline' die.
All the flowers are from the 'Time Traveller' collection.
That's all I have for today.  I have just returned from the TSS retreat this past weekend and I'm leaving again on Friday to attend the Craft Expo in Brisbane.  So many exciting things happening right now!  Better go and get some sleep. :)
Thank you so much for popping by my blog.  I appreciate it.
Until next time!
