Your home.......

I'm back to share a LO with you for my scrapbook album - this will most likely be the first page, seeing as it was taken in the beginning of Jan. 
This one came together nicely - it has a bit of randomness about it.  The centre photo has been matted onto a piece of cardboard - just to give a rustic 'boyish' feel to the page.  Then I've also added a circle doily behind this as a centre piece.  This is actually a remnant (the centre has been cut-out for another purpose) Even though the centre is missing, it still makes a fabulous mat for your photo's! 

I've cut out a piece from some pattern paper and matted this onto some red cardstock, then added some faux stitching to the bottom edge.  You can see some stamping in the backgroud - this is a doily stamp which I've inked up in Not Quite Navy to match the cardstock.

I've used some buttons for embellishments - check out the little owl button - isn't it just adorable - this one is from Lil Red Rocket.  They are super cute.
Thanks for coming by.  If you love the idea of using remnant doilies and trims, I have some in my Etsy store - there's lots of pretty colours and natural white.
