Twice The Pleasure

Well it's Friday, a fortnight has gone by and that means only one thing - it's time for another challenge at CACB! This time our challenge is Stitching - real or faux. Now, I'm not really all that big on stitching on papercrafty projects so I can't think what possessed me to choose this topic but I did so I have to go with the flow lol! As it happens, I really enjoyed creating this page so I think I may have got over the stitching thing at last - job done :o)
The main dp, vellum, frame & winged heart are all from Rhapsody in blue SB kit. The silver leaves to create the border down the right hand side are from the Pretty in Pink SB kit. The fringed paper is from the 8 x 8 silver collection and was fringed in Craft Artist which has made it look like a piece of fabric - love that effect! The 'stitching' on the vellum was also done in Craft Artist. The subject matter of the photo is courtesy of my sister - my twin niece and nephew. It was taken about 5 years ago and was one of those spontaneous things that just produced one of my favourite photos of them. I'm somewhat vertically challenged and have a step stool (one of those things on wheels that you see in offices and supermarkets) for reaching the top couple of shelves in the kitchen cupboards and they had both raced to sit on it and ended up back to back sharing it in fits of giggles. I just had to capture the moment and love how it worked. I think this will have to go to my sister in recognition of her contribution ;o)
Anyway, enough of my waffle - I'm entering my page into these challenges:
