New FileKutz Challenge and Free File

Poets, songwriters and philosophers have all written, sung and lectured about TIME....the sweet rewards, the tragic loss of, the thief, the ravisher, the treasure, the pleasure.  This weekend's challenge also revolves around TIME.   LisaJane has created an absolute treasure of a file that includes clock faces, hands and numbers, even roman numerals.  There are so many options in this file, you will be able to use it over and over and get a different look each time.
My challenge to you is to simply create a layout/card/project that includes this file AND the word "time" somewhere on your project.  The way you decide to use the file is entirely up to you...use it as a background, an embellishment or part of a saying or title.  Time may be used in any form on your layout also....borrow from a song, a saying, or by itself.  (I am sure you can think of millions but just in case, you can find some "time" songs and sayings HERE and HERE .)

You will have the rest of the week and weekend to create your layout as the submission deadline will be May 23rd at 12:00pm EST and winners will be announced here on this blog soon after.  A random winner will be chosen from the submissions to receive an additional free file of your choice from FILEKUTZ.  **Please use the "add your link" button at the bottom of this post to link up your submitted project

For my layout, I kept hearing Cyndi Lauper's classic "Time after Time" running over and over in my head and I just love the unconditional meaning of the lyrics "If you fall, I will catch you" so I incorporated that into this layout about my son.  I wanted to use the file as a background so I chose the hands and numerals I wanted to use, cut them out and then used Black Diamond stickles on them to give them a shiny finish like a metal clock would have.  
I hope you get a chance to play with this really great file and enter the challenge.  And don't forget to subscribe to this blog so that you can be notified of upcoming file challenges to get you inspired and motivated to complete those layouts.
