Fussy Layout

Here is my first attempt at a "fussy" scrapbook layout. I love the look of that style of page, but I never really tried it myself. I distressed the heck out of the background paper: spritzing it with water, inking it, crinkling, ripping, tearing, rolling. It has been thoroughly abused, as I like to say! I made all the flowers, then highlighted them with silver Stickles. I used various decorative tapes, stickers, a chipboard coaster, sheer ribbon, and Candi dots (from the UK). The photo was taken in the fall in Savannah, at Bonaventure Cemetary.

Miles of Smiles,
