Time In A Bottle

Wow, the weekend went by oh so fast. Another time I wish I could save "time in a bottle". I've always loved that song by Jim Croce and the lyrics are so true. I'm sure everyone could say that they wish they could save time in a bottle.

That is the title of this layout I did of my hubby playing with my grandson, his very first time at the beach. I am entering it into this weeks challenge at Twisted Sketches this week's twist is "Time" - any how, any way and the sketch is:

Here is my layout:
I used some shells and things I found on the beach.
And put some sand in a tiny bottle and hung it from the "B" with twine.
I really love how this layout turned out!

Supplies used: cardstock - light grey; patterned paper - Just Beachy Seashells and Just Beachy Palm Fronds by TPC Studio; border punch - EK Success; journal spot - October Afternoon; chipboard alphabet - Tinsel Thickers by American Crafts; bottle, twine - my stash.

Thanks for taking a peek!!
