Birthdays X Two!

Happy Birthday to our two dear Friends, Rick and Trina! We think of these two as family in so many ways! In just a little while we will be going to a "Big" birthday party to celebrate, but I thought it would be safe to post this on my blog! Inspiration Journal is having a "Birthday Celebration" challenge and I am taking my friends for a visit there!
It all started with a background using the colors in the picture of my friends.  Using a stencils from The Crafters Workshop I applied the birthday numbers over the diamond pattern. Of course I could not resist that spritz and flick technique!
Since this is certainly a celebration of time, I chose Tim's Pocket Watch as a frame and this was cut from grunge board, crackled, stained and sealed, as were the numbers. I rubbed on a little of my new Treasure Gold "Onyxite" on the edges.
Keeping this short as I have to get a move on! I am bringing a Pasta Salad with Shrimp, which is always a hit! I wait to the end to add the tomatoes and feta cheese! 

Thank you so much for taking the time on the weekend to visit! I hope your weekend is filled with love, family and friendship!
