My Sheri CRAFTS - Challenge #76 Time for a Change

Challenge #76 is "Time for a Change." We would love for you to create a project with a clock represented. I have wanted to create a cover for my journal so I knew this would be the perfect opportunity. The journal is retired from CTMH and has a 5 x 7 opening in the front cover. The sentiment I used was computer generated and I found the clock front online as well. I used Sopia paper and punched out a 2 inch scallop circle. Once again I used my Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge and cut out the tab on page 48 at 2 1/2 inches. I thought it looked like my grandmas old mantle clock. I double mounted the saying and sponged with Smoothie ink. The "clock" is sponged with Black. I found some bling in my stash that I used to jazz it up. I used pop dots to pop up the clock for some dimension. I don't make resolutions, I make goals and my goal for this year is to get fit. This will allow me to choose and area to work on so I am planning to get more mentally and spiritually fit in January. I plan to use my new journal to write my thoughts, prayer requests, answers to prayers, etc. Hope you enjoy. Update on my pink "Charlie Brown" tree - family issues took priority over my tree. I have it on the table in my craft room so it will still be in sight. Someday....
