Wall Hanging for ARTZ de SCRAP CONTEST!!!

Here is my entry for the Artz de Scrap coaster wall-hanging contest...wish me luck!!!
I have taken a regular sized clip board and ALTERED it with SU stamps,Designer Scrapbook papers,LOTS of ribbons, CORK,metal embellies,HANDMADE stick pins( gonna make more of these sweeties!!),hand-dyed silk flowers, and VINTAGE mother-of-pearl button from my yummy stash!
Some of the papers used were from my "win" at Artz de Scrap for MY WORLD inspiration. Fun Basic Grey "Perhaps" and EK Success "Inspirables" matched perfectly with the color combo of natural cork and assorted ribbons, fibers & trims....This kind of ART is my most favorite of all....
Featured on this wall hanging are my children ( and grandguys)....The coasters are layered with coordinating SU cardstock...and featuring...from left to right:
Our daughter, Jenny and husband Bill....they live in Boston
Our daughter, Joy, husband Lee & grandguys Myles & Sammy...they live in SC
Our son, Jarrod & his wife Ericka....they live in Mississippi
And the sweet memories of life.....the story behind the CASTLE....which is "floating" inside a clear envelope attached to the clipboard...and can be exchanged with an updated pic of hubby and me(whenever!)....ANYHOO...the story is that when hubby & I were dating, he promised to always treat me like a queen...and he always has....so, the castle ( from Disney World) is a symbol of our love...and life together.
So....that's it for today....Thanks so much for visiting!!....Beeeeeee sure to check out my Etsy shop, StudioBeeCreations...and DD Jenny's at KittyKards6473.
Creative Blessings,
Debbie
