Me, Me, Me



When I saw that this week’s CD Sunday challenge is ‘quotations’, I was stumped initially.  None of the quotations that I like seemed to be suitable for a card. But then I remembered this quote  from Alice in Wonderland ‘I can’t go back to yesterday because I was a different person then. ‘  It gave me an idea for a 12 x 12 scrapbook layout and the person it made me think of was…me!  I’ve noticed that in recent photos I’ve started to look a bit (shall we say) ‘tired’. The quote made me think about how I feel about aging. 
I made a collage in Serif Craft Artist, using a photo of me and elements from  Night Garden digitkit (not to be confused with ‘In the Night Garden’, no Iggle Piggle!).  I added the quote to the collage and printed it. My background is a sheet of Teresa Collins paper . The  two smaller clocks are from My Craft Studio CDs ( Tinkering with Steampunk and Setting the Scene Shop Fronts). The journalling spot, hearts and jar (bottom left) were cut on my Silhouette Cameo. 

As well as CD Sunday , I'd like to enter : 
Inklings and Yarns  Inky Linky party 
A Song in you Heart  Unfinished songs ( 'now is your time' )
