Touching Moments- BITW Reveal

For my giveaway press here
Hello Friends!
I have another reveal today for Bird is the Word. The word to use is TOUCH.  At first I thought this would be easy but I couldn't come up with a short title to fit my pictures. Finally I thought of Touching Moments, although I'm not even sure if that's grammatically correct.

I used an amazing sketch from the Skissedilla blog. I haven't been able to play there a lot because the times didn't coincide with my reveals, but I finally got a layout in there! YAY!!

For the background, I used tissue paper that was used to wrap a shirt I bought last week. I poured tacky glue all over the page and then corrugated the tissue paper. I love the effect it gives. I then sprayed, inked and stamped the paper for added effect.

I used lots of Prima goodies I especially love these Laredo flowers. I added a zipper to match the Prima zipper embellishment. I used 3 embellishments with the word moments: The light bulb, the zipper and the metal coin.

I used this new 2 Crafty Fencing wire panel chipboard. I love this new chipboard it adds lots of dimension to my layout.

I love catching my son in these type of pictures. Looking out into the horizon. These moments touch my heart and I wanted to convey this message here. I don't always need him to be looking at the camera. Sometimes I can peek into his soul when he's not looking at me. I wish I could read his thoughts at those times.

Materials Used:
Papers: Tissue Paper, Prima Craftsman and Fairy Belle
2 Crafty chipboard: Fencing Wire Panel
Prima flowers Laredo Buckskin
Prima Light bulb embellishment
Prima Zipper embellishment
Tim Holtz cogs and button
Tim Holtz Distress Stain Vintage Photo
Prima Fluid Chalk Ink brown
American Crafts Thickers Cream
Graphic 45 mini alphas
Black Zipper
