The only thing missing is bows!

Ever wondered how to use up the left-over stickers in your stash? I scraplifted this idea - from a scrapbook magazine I think - a couple of years ago for a photo of my daughter. I've used stickers, buttons, flowers, sequins and brads to frame her photo. I even stamped a flower onto acetate a couple of times and cut the images out to use as well. The only thing missing is bows!
I think it looks quite 'busy' in the photo but in real life it's a very pretty layout - and no journaling required for those of you who, like me, dislike your own handwriting.
It's a very simple idea but don't make the mistake of thinking it's a fast way to do a scrapbook page! It took me ages to arrange all the embellishments and stick them down!
Have you have heard of The Stamp Man? On their blog at the moment there's some lovely blog candy up for grabs!  Here's the link and a photo of what you could win -
I could make some really nice bows with this!


  1. I can see it wasn't a quick page to do... must have taken forever. Those acetate flowers are fabulous!

  2. It's gorgeous. Are you not even tempted to write a single line along the top of that ribbon? Cor, it would kill me not to - but that's the skill isn't it, knowing when to stop!
