I'm charmed at lasting memories

I truly am charmed.  If you look closely at the oval charm there is a photo of me in it.  I cut the photo, put it in the charm and did a layer of liquid glass over it.  So there you go I am charmed. However I think the interpretation of the challenge at lasting memories is something slightly different.  You can do a LO of your charmed life but we also want you to add a real charm to your layout
I was inspired by two different challenges for this layout.
I used the sketch from CS 257
I also  played bingo with shopping our stash
I did brads, bling and button

The oval frame was pewter, but I covered it with a silver paint pen so it would go better with the pearl brads

I deviated from the sketch and added a second photo as I have no journaling for this layout other then the chipboard tabs.  I'm not sure how old I am in these photos, but do know it was taken in the base housing complex in Wiesbaden Germany.  Probably late 1973 or early1974

Hope you'll share your charm with us at lasting memories
