Grungy Monday #5 Shall we grow old together?




I have not been able to play with the Grungy Monday challenge for a couple of weeks, but finally I found the time for it. I don't make a lot of LO's, have not made one for...... uuuh 6 years. I don't take a lot of photos, so there is not much to make LO's of. But for this challenge and this Tim Holtz technique it was the right medium. 
I have used this cool DP from Bo Bunny called Timepiece gears.
The flowers are all from WOC, the lace is from Kort og Godt and the purple ribbon is actually a part of my weddingdress.
The butterflys are from Kort og Godt and the steampunk metal and "Journey" metal tag is from Tim Holtz.


I took one of our wedding photos and printed it in sephia, then I rubbed over it with Vintage Photo Distress Ink and tore up the corners - just in general gave it a hard time *LOL*

For my dimesion I used this set of rings with a down on. This actually came as decoration on one of the cakes for our wedding.
I am going to add some text to this later on. I is going to say:
"Shall we grow old togheter?".

Thanks for stopping by!

this is a lovely layout, it's not always easy to mix traditional flowers etc with more grungy themes like steam punk, but you have done it brilliantly
