Scrapology November Layout Challenge - F is for Fabric Flowers

I can't believe it's November already - where has the year gone?

Over on Scrapology this month the theme is 'Fabric Flowers' and the team choose a layout by Hannah Young of Handmade Hannah as inspiration.

With Halloween only a week ago, I choose to use some photos of my daughter taken on Halloween last year on my page.

I used patterned papers from Basicgrey's Eerie Collection and cardstock from Bazzill. The lettering was cut on the Craft Robo and stickled to add lots of sparkle.

The fabric Flowers were made using a tutorial from Gabrielle Pollocco's blog. The purple fabric flowers was made from ribbon saved from a box of chocolates and the black and silver flowers were made from a pair of my daughters Halloween tights! Just proves that most things can be used in scrapbooking to good effect. I punched some leaves from cardstock and stickled them and also made an extra paper from patterned paper which I cut on the Craft Robo and also stickled. Lots of sparkle on this layout which unfortunately only shows in real life.

Here is Hannah's original layout ..................

Please pop over to Scrapology to see all the team's layouts and to join in the fun by creating your own layout using the design team's pages for inspiration and the technique of creating flowers from fabrics.
