Repurposed scrapbook page

I am not an expert scrapbooker but I was excited about this page. The flowers are made of fabric that I cut out of a scarf that my dog got from the groomer. Of coarse I washed it, ironed and added ribbon stiffener to it. The fabric flowers were then sewn on to the paper with a sewing machine.

My daughter does not like this picture of herself but I don't think there has ever been a bad picture of her.

I was thinking that scrapbooking has gotten away from the scrap part of it.

Come to the Creatively-Green message board to see more interesting pages.

I love this page! And, the picture is just lovely. My daughter has the same issue though. She hates most pictures that I take of her, but they are going in the scrapbook anyway! :) I really like the clean look of this page. I am going to have to sratrt doing that myself. TFS!

What fun! Wish my groomer used pretty fabrics, as I just toss 'em. Great page - love the side-ish shot.

Sorry if this is a dup - just had trouble posting a comment. Love the bright colors, & wish my groomer used pretty fabrices. Maybe I'll use the next one for a Thank You card for her!

What a great way to re-use the dog's bandana. I like that you used a b&w photo with your colorful flowers. This is a lovely photo and a terrific page.
