CB 16 Family and Thing

"The best thing to hold onto in life is each other."  -Audrey Hepburn

As soon as I saw this quote, I knew it was the one for my next ATC for the Craft Barn Quotes & Lyrics Challenge.
I decided to just have fun experimenting with the background.  In fact, I grabbed whatever was in from of me and just glued it down.  Those hand-holding figures were a different story! This was about my third attempt (and believe me, the best) to make them small and relatively recognizable. 

Thank you for stopping by and have a happy creative weekend!

Love your little people, which took me back to when I was a little person and loved to do those cutouts. As this is an ATC they must be really tiny!

see you there! said...

Great one, your tiny people illustrate the quote so well.

well done with your little people chain, definitely not easy to do so small.but worth it. They look great on your ATC and do go well with your quote

Ah Debbie, this is adorable. I really like how you decorated the quote with those people holding onto each other. Great take on this latest challenge, and a beautiful background (from scraps, my favorite), too.

This is lovely - definitely a case of 3rd time lucky with the people chain.

I saw the comment about the Time ads. As much as I would like to say yes, I think I'm going to pass on them. I think that book is finished. Thanks for thinking of me and thanks for asking. However, if you have any left over fodder from your worldwide travels . . . (grin).
