Vogue

I came across this picture of my grandmother and fell in love with her dress.  I'm not quite sure when this picture was taken.  If you click on the picture you can see more of the detail.

I based my layout on the sketch over at Stuck On U Sketches.  This sketch was designed by Leah Schaeffer, one of their design team  members.
I decided to flip the sketch and based my layout on this:
This layout gave me the opportunity to dig into a lot of my embellishments and I had a lot of fun adding all the different elements to the page.  I used ribbon in place of the strips on the sketch.  I wanted to mimic the ribbon tie on my grandmother's dress, and decided to tie a ribbon around the picture. Paper by Scribble Scrabble and Graphic 45.  Flowers and flourishes by Prima.  Laser die cut by Dusty Attic.  Metal embellishment by Making Memories, title American Crafts.  It's hard to tell, but I stitched around the brown polka dot paper with my sewing machine!  It's gets more use now with my layouts then it ever did with sewing!



Thanks for stopping by!

Oh, Debbie ... I love when you do vintage .. this is absolutely stunning. Great how you used ribbon to mimic the strips on the sketch. I could look at this one for hours! You know me .. the more embellies, the better, so this a fave in my book. Seems like when I'll do one of these that it takes all my juices and then I lose my mojo on the next one. LOL Thanks for joining us this week!

So romantic, so beautiful, so full of details.
I love the multi-layers and all the embellishments.
Very creative idea to tie the ribbon around the photo to mimic the ribbon tie on the dress.
I also love the frame around the photo!
Simply great! TFS
