Growing Up... Through Time @ Pinspirational Challenges

So it's been a while since I've made a creation for Pinspirational Challenges as I was away last week in Paris for a few days...

So this week I've joined in with this weeks challenge, which is the concept of Time and the team have been inspired by this picture below to create something:

So our sponsor this week is...

And my creation is below inspired by the above picture:

This is a project I have created made up of a card with photos inside of myself taken at certain times and ages of my life. These pictures have been used over the last few 7 years and to be honest I haven't changed - physically - that much. I've still got a bit of a baby face and I still get ID-ed in the supermarket for alcohol and a lottery ticket. My Mum actually likes to play 'Guess my Daughter's age' with her friends and they normally go for 12. The lowest guess is 11. Yeah I know, right?!

So the first picture is when I was 19 celebrating my 19th birthday with my friends. The lovely lady in the picture with me is Gloria. I think she said something funny and that's why I laughed! The second picture was when I was 23 and the last picture was taken a few weeks ago at my present age of 26.

This creation was inspired by the photo above of the clock and the concept of time and how everyone grows up. I also did a similar card for my male close friend Adam for his 25th birthday - which you can find here from my other blog via Tumblr.

I hope that this has inpsired you to join in this week's challenge at Pinspirational Challenges! Check out the creations of the DT team also, as usual they're pretty awesome! :) Join in this week challenge and tell your friends about it! We'd love to see you all take part!

    1. I was trying to find photos at different time scales, which proved to be a tiny bit difficult, but I'm glad it turned out well! Thanks for your comment Lynn!
