Scrapbooking, sewing theme layout

Sonia's wedding day.
This photo was just so stunning that I had to do something extra special with it. 
I started with paper from the Lost and Found collection, and then built up from there.  I made the two cotton holders at the top of the page on the right, and also a little hard to see, but in beside the two flowers is a little tidy cotton reel.  I added two doily type cutouts from the same collection and added to the top of the photo and used rubons to put the date on. I used chalk ink to add defininition tot he edges, as they blended intot he background to much.  I also added one under the sewing machine, and flowers. 
I made a paper ribbon to the left of the photo, from the back of the doily paper, and added special lace that I had been saving for a special project.  I added a 7 gypsies tape meausre along the bottom of the photo.  The inked a collections sewing machine and added White dream words to the sewing machine.  I used old patterns to make the flowers, which i cut and adhered to a wooden circle.
