Youth - Bo Bunny TimePiece sketch challenge

The more I work with this collection, the more I love it!!  I just love the brown with the touches of dark red and subtle ivories.    It is perfect for scrapping the plethora of vintage photos that I have on hand!  I did this layout from the beautiful Tara Orr sketch at the Bo Bunny blog.
 
The picture is of my Mother taken circa 1945.  The little note say "Remember when you were young.  Could you have imagined all the places you would live - France, Japan, Germany?"

The chipboard at the top is Dusty Attic that I painted with vintage white and then "gold leafed" with Perfect Pearls.  After that dried I painted it with Crackle Accents to give it that aged look.  Finally I rubbed distress ink, frayed burlap, into the cracks. 

Swirlydoos had this collection as a spotlight kit recently and that's where the papers, trinkets, pearl spray, pearl flower centers, and tags came from.  I add a lot of bits and pieces from my stash.  That lacy bit behind the photo was actually a "hanky" that was tucked into the breast pocket of some outfit long gone!  The paper flowers are Primas that I have layered and inked.  The crocheted flower is from Petaloo-Chantilly.  Oh that striped ribbon I have hoarded for years.  I don't know why I like it so much, but I do.  Finally it is time to use it.  Seriously I've had it since probably Christmas 2005 or 2006.  It came in a page kit that my SIL gave me for Christmas.
