Finishing Touches

I've been working on my scrapbook pages this week. I started this page yesterday and added the journalling today. I needed some time to think about the title.

My Mom added a velvet strip onto the collar of her new purple coat at the weekend.  For some reason I was in a stitching mood yesterday.  The black running stitch border around this double page layout was done by hand.

I used some of the extra black velvet we had to make some of these ribbon/fabric flowers.  And I tried one in purple ribbon just to see how it's meant to look.  I think the fabric is just too 'floppy' for this technique.

I finally got a page from the Round The Vines 10k walk we did back in March scrapped. I've had the journalling typed and printed for a while it just took me a while to decide on a photograph. I wanted one that had all three of us.

The title was done with an alphabet and my Cuttlebug on Purple Shiny Sticker paper.  The dies didn't really cut all the way through properly so I have accidentally ripped some of the letters but you can't really tell.  The edges of the papers and photo has been inked with Ancient Page in Lavender.

And I have finally finished this page.  It only needed a title and some journalling and I have done both today.
