Eleven ... (& 12 goals for Lecca!!)

Now I think I've mentioned how much I am loving this months theme at My2Angels ?!?! LOL!! I could scrap this colour scheme ALL the time! So here is my 2nd LO which I posted a sneaky of in my last post, it is a gorgeous 'black & white' photo of my ‘ELEVEN’ year old and it is using a paper I actually picked and ordered for the other side (black patterned) but I really loved this side with the clocks that I just had to find a way to use it! 
I'm hoping I've done this 'ever-so-slightly-vintage' style justice?!

EDIT: This LO was accepted for publication 29 July 2010 .... YAY!!!
and will be published in Scapbooking Memories VOL 13 No 4 due out in March 2011!
I have left you a little sneaky below though!

I've used Core-dinations Black cardstock and the gorgeous Collage Press Scrooge Marley The Counting House paper, I cut off a strip of the paper and then cut out the clocks. I put strips of red cardstock and some red ribbon down the edges of the paper to match the red around the clocks. Then using 3D tape I put the clocks back on leaving a ‘shadow’ gap. 
The little clock face is something I picked up at a craft fair last year, cute eh?! 
I’ve used some Black and Red Mulberry flowers and Black Plaid Brads and partially hidden them behind the clocks together with a Key and Follow your Heart charm.
The gorgeous Scrapware Penny Farthing Bicycle, I sprayed with Raven Glimmer Mist (but coloured the seat red) and then finished it off using Inkssentials Crackle Accent and some Black Pearls. 
My title is a combination of Thickers Black Daiquiri alphas and the Jenni Bowlin Tiny Circle Alphas which I really, love at the moment! (they will be back in stock in the store later this week!)
