CC3C # !5: Cabinet Card Pocket, Pg. 38

Welcome to another installment of the Compendium of Curiosities Challenge, Vol. 3, hosted by Linda at Studio L3.  This is the eleventh challenge in where we work through the techniques of Tim Holtz from, you guessed it…his 3rd Volume of the Compendium of Curiosities!!  As in the past challenges, we can’t give details on the challenge, so don’t ask, but do go get your own copy of Tim’s fabulous book.  Also, InspirationEmporium has offered an extremely generous $50 Gift Certificate for all the odd numbered Challenges! So grab a copy, and join in to play!!  All the deets are here, at Linda’s blog!

OK, onto the Technique, or in this case, cool Tim Holz Product!  First...Shocking… for someone who ran a photography business for a number of years, you’d think I’d have some photos of family members…but alas, no.  So into my TH Stash and his found relatives pack I did foray.   So I've decided this picture can be of my husband’s parents, on North Beach in Chatham MA., where in fact he did grow up…so not that far fetched.  And the stamp is actually Chatham Light.  I found a set of the  Outer Cape Lights from Blockhead Stamps when they were closing their NY shop and moving to New Mexico. It was in the remnant bin, which I usually don’t have the patience to go through. but am so glad I did.  Too bad they didn't have the rest of the Cape lights!  Finished with the TH Die cuts, a sea gull stamp from a set I think is from Crafty Individuals…

So there it is; my in-Laws, a few years before my Sister in Law was born, enjoying the beach between the tides (and therefore work-FiL was a commercial fisherman)

Now go visit the Curiosity Crew’s sites…there are some amazing pieces there this week..and then join the fun..there is still time! Have a great week everyone.
