I have a scrapbook page to share with you today.  I started by stamping a 12 x 12 sheet of card stock with Rubbernecker's Wild Flower Background Sku 447 using Versamark Dazzle and clear embossing it.  I sponged the edges with Memento Sweet Plum.
Doesn't it make a fabulous background for a SB page!

I cut a piece of CTMH patterned paper and distressed the edges and sponged it with the Sweet Plum as well. I found these old pixs of my daughter when she was younger and adhered them to the patterned paper.

I found these wonderful big doilies in the party section of the dollar store (I just love the dollar store). I sponged it up a bit with Antique Linen Distress Ink.

I added a strip of dollar store cream lace and adhered some Maya Road Flower ribbon to it using Scor-Tape.  Finished the ribbon off with some Kaiser Pearls.

I added some buttons, Prima flower, pins, cameo, locket charm, and a ZVA Flourish. My tiny title is scrap patterned paper with rub ons. I attached it to some crotche thread using library clips. To finish off this page I stamped Rubbernecker's Butterfly Inchies Sku 427 with Memento Rich Cocoa and colored it with Desert Sand and Rich Cocoa using Fantastix.  I added some pearls to these sweet butterflies. I really like the vintage feel of this page.

Thanks for stopping by  and have a most fabulous day!
