Pocket watches full of memories for technique 9, compendium of curiosities 2 challenges

Well it is that time of the week for the next Tim technique from compendium of curiosities vol 2, and all the details for this pocket watch can be found from the man himself..on page 35.
I have played with a pocket watch before but wanted to try something a little personal inspired by the fab Lindas here.
so here is mine :

So I decided to include a favourite snowy photo of my 3 beautiful children and some shrink plastic snowflakes, inside and out.( these were tricky and as many as can be seen here ended up in destination..bin!)I love this photo and it never fails to make me smile, we had such fun!
I am amazed at how hard I found this but am sure I will treasure this personalised watch for many many many years to come! I think the pocket watches are fab!

This challenge is sponsored by the fab simonsaysstamp and a random person will win $25!!

I am entering this for the following challenges:
