Remember When......

 Remember when you couldn't wait to grow up?!  
It was like wearing a badge of pride when you said,  "I'm (this many fingers up) and a half!"  
Now I'd like to freeze time or back peddle, back peddle, back peddle..
 When I started this challenge, I had no idea where it was going; except that it had to have blue in it and mixed media elements.  Once I colored up the vintage boy/man clown, the rest is... well, driven by childhood nostalgia.
So thank you Mixed Media Card Challenge...it's been fun!
And here's my completed card.....
Here's to aging, but never quite maturing...
Hugs and Happy Crafting,
Lisa xx

I'm not happy ageing, but like hubby tells me, the alternative is worse. I'm 39 and next year I've decided I'll turn thirty-ten, sounds so much younger than 40 doesn't it... What a fantastic little piece of art this is. Love its mixed media style and the sentiment! And that image is so sweet.
