Anniversary Printer Tray


50th Anniversary Printer Tray
 This is the project I've been working on for most of June.  A Tim Holtz printer tray for my Mum & Dad's 50th Wedding Anniversary.  When I was visting them in Scotland in May I managed to scan some of my mum and dad's wedding album - told porkies and said my friends daughter was doing a project for school on weddings and comparing styles between now and the 60's :)

Mini canvas
I've used tissue tape on the edges, Bo Bunny TimePiece papers, grunge blocks, Prima leaves, an old pocket watch and made flowers from Claudine Helmuth canvas.  I also made a mini album using the TH clock die.
Mum & Dad were quite surprised  - didn't know I had got hold of old family photos, they really liked it.
