TMTA - Nostalgia



Life has been so hectic lately that I haven't been able to get to any of my favorite weekly challenges in ages! When I looked at the theme this week at TMTA I knew I had the perfect stamp to make a quick card. This Tim Holtz stamp practically makes a card by itself! The smaller image is from one of my favorite sheets from Time to Stamp called Photo Booth. I love this image...he's smiling right into the camera, she's a little unsure. It makes me think of my parents...my mom left home for the first time when she was 18 to elope to Florida where my dad was stationed during WWII. They were married on the base with none of their family and only a new friend of my dad as a witness.
