change will do you good

Hysterical isn't it?  Thank goodness we DO change!  I used a page from an old yearbook.  (Yes, it's authentic!) and my favorite Tim Holtz saying.

 
I was inspired by the sketch at Unscripted Sketches.  I knew I wanted to use the yearbook old page, but I wanted to have a modern edge, so I mixed in some enamel dots for a contemporary vintage card.  I love it when a plan comes together:)
