Always lo

Still with my second wedding album- the first one was given to my DS and DDIL,  and as I want one for us- I scrap those wedding photos here and there, whenever I have a mood and a right supplies. So Graphic 45 paper are great, also I just have a few of them and mostly the X-mas lines I got as a present on 2009 CHA, but sometimes it's really challenging to use " out of the blue" paper lines  and to make a lovely page, and this page is lovely..
I think I even " invented" somthing here: I covered this great sephia photo with white tulle- all over the photo and the result is just great.
Everything else is a rutine:cut a circle from double sided paper and  put it inside again from the reverse side.. Done.. Now do some faux stitching, if you , like me, are not a sewing person...Now use your border punches- done..
Add some great embellishments- for this shabby look metals are the best, some lace, some ribbon..
Now for flowers.. Tim Holtz die  makes it easy.. The flower center buttons are from my vintage stash- the solver shoe is just great for a Cinderella bride.Hearts are always great..
Now for a title.. Boring.. All of them were done.. So Always is always good.. Thickers? Boring.. So I found some Paper studio cork letters , new set.. Did I really pay 7.99$ for this set? Was I crazy?
I think it was on some sale, otherwise I am crazy, as the set is nice, not more then it, 1 letter E in the whole set, you can't even spell Forever.. Why do I always have problem with letter E?
Some distressing around is a must.. 3 hours for this one.. No Prima flowers or blings - 2 extra hours of scrapping cost.. Bad cost- benefit analysis of mine..
Just hope you like the page or my long post or both..
And some challenges too:

עירית דף מהמם!י
מאד אהבתי את רעיון הטול הדקיק שלא גורע אלא מוסיף
התגיות הוינטאג'יות נהדרות
וכל העיצוב מושלם
ואהבתי את הרשומה עם נגיעה הומוריסית ! :o ))
