ICADs 50 - 59

Just 2 more ICADs to go before
I have started the ICAD Challenge quite a few
times but this is the first year I have managed to see
it through to the end (I know I'm being a little 
presumptuous but with only 2 to go I think 
the odds of me finishing are looking pretty good!).
I have really enjoyed it and the daily blast of creativity
that it's pushed me to do
but I'm also pleased that it's coming to an end.

Anyway, here are my latest batch of ICADs.

Tammy has set up a Mr Linky on her Daisy Yellow blog
so if you'd like to see some other ICADs (there have
been 1000s!!) then click HERE and you
will find the links to go to.

Documented Life Project - Week 28

July Theme - Ephemera
Week 28 Art Challenge - Focal Point vs Layering
Week 28 Journal Prompt - Time keeps on ticking

I bought the photos on the left hand side page in a job lot from Ebay - I don't know these people (or the dog) and the life stories they would have to tell.
But these photos tell a story that surely all of us can relate to - families, pets, children, having fun, life events and relationships etc - and then in what seems to be the blink of an eye, huge chapters of our lives are in the past.
Time might fly by too fast, but I'm going to enjoy every moment I possibly can.  

That's me and Grant on the right hand side, we don't look quite that weird in real life but if I spend any more time trying to get our faces right I'll go mad, and hey, life's too short, haha!!

The background for these pages is a faux wood effect 
that I stumbled across (I wanted it to look like floorboards).

You can watch the technique on this short video.

Thank you for looking!
