Key To My Heart Memory Frame

The picture on the left is taken from Tim Holtz’s Compendium of Curiosities.

The one on the right is my second attempt of a version of Tim Holtz memory frame pendant, this time I have used a Ranger 1” x 3” antique copper Memory Frame and a 1” x 3” Memory Capsule, all by Ranger.
I wasn’t too sure about the bulldog clip (too red) and the heart (too fancy) ….. so in the end I took them both off and turned the Memory Frame around, which is much more me and easier to wear.
I am really, really trying to resist buying too much of Tim’s paraphernalia, though I love it all dearly, I know I would be heading for a very expensive diversion ….. so with just a few key elements, I am holding myself back by making use of my own found treasures that I have collected over the years and will improvise with them instead.

I think your efforts are brilliant and you're braver than me! I also agree that even though all the Tim Holtz stuff is very lovely and very desirable, it is also rather pricey so I am also having to resist the temptation!
