All things pretty

Here's a scrapbook page made with all things pretty - namely, fabric, lace and buttons.
I've used this sweet picture of Amber, all dressed up as Little Red Riding Hood.

I chose to use Riding Hood Red cardstock as the base, seeing as the photo had lots of red as well.  To create contrast, I've layered some fabric and lace to one side of the layout, then added the photo.  I've used Tidy Alphabet for the title.  And I've printed out some journalling and matted onto some Mellow Moss cardstock.  Both of these pieces have been crumpled up, to give a textured look.
I've used my little craft sewing machine to add some stitching across the top of the layout.  Though it didn't really co-operate with the layers, so it does have a rather messy look!!
I've added the large flower embellisment next to the photo and also used the Trio Flower punch to make up three smaller flowers for brads in the centre.

Well let me know what you think of my fabric scrapbooking.  There's something about having texture on a page and I love to explore the various styles in my scrapbooking world.

This will be my last post for a week or so, though I do have a few scheduled posts for the DT challenges.  We are going on holidays with the boys and I'm really looking forward to this special treat; to just relax and have some fun in the sun.  So til next time....

I love your fabric scrapbooking, I think the same effect would look great on cards. I love the flower too, such a clever embellishment. You've done such a great job.
