Gearing Up For Greatness

This is my bi-weekly challenge over at Platinum Scraps  Each designer had to create a layout from a sketch selected from Pagemaps.

I am tryng to finish my kids graduation albums, so you will see layout after layout in the next few weeks featuring them.  They have only been out of school one and two years respectively.  LOL.

This layout shows my son as we prepared to take him to college.  It was a bittersweet time for me.  Eventhough, I had been thru this with my daughter, he is my baby.  He also doesn't want Mama "Baby- Fying" Him up.  LOL.  I do anyway. 

I love how the Tim Holtz gears came out.  I cannot get a very good close up of the gears.  I used a new metallic paint and it is absolutely beautiful.  So easy to use.
