Altered Antique Clock

One of my best friends, Tina Gebhart is a GREAT mom. She works all day then comes home to 4 kids and all their activities and she still finds time to coach her daughter's city league soccer team. She's been my bleacher buddy at our son's football games for the past 4 seasons. For Tina's birthday, I wanted to make her something different. The area that we live (Princeton, IL) in is known for antiques and flea markets. I picked up this wood mantel clock that had seen better days. I call this piece "Time with Hannah." I did a photo shoot of her daughter a couple weeks ago and got a darling shot of her playing goalie looking down field waiting for the ball to dare to come near her. I used the Sports & Activities Soccer paper line on the front face and designed "grass" out of cardstock. I love using scrapbook papers for home decor and I especially liked spoiling Tina by capturing a memory of her little angel in "time." Thanks for your comments, I really do appreciate your feedback.

All my best, Lynette Daniel
