Saving photos to scrapbook later

Sometimes I print a photo because I love it, but I don't really have a reason to scrapbook it because I lack story. After some recent conversations with my cousins, I was inspired to write about the important role my cousins have played in my life. Here's the photo and the page:

I used a kit from Studio Calico that had some nice girly colors and patterns, plus some elements from the Ali Edwards kit named FABRIC. I created some strong lines with the papers to balance the frou-frou. I had a lot of story to tell, so I printed it on cardstock, cut it into strips, and stitches it to the page abutting the vertical patterned paper. running horizontal is a strip of vellum that I stapled onto the page. Here's some details:

I know I wanted to create a cluster with all the pretty embellishments in the kits, so once I decided on the design, I clustered them around the title and set the photo on top of it. I decided I needed to make use of some of my rub-ons, so I added a gold heart and some Jenni Bowlin butterflies.

Thank you for visiting and letting me share this page with you! I hope it gives you ideas holding on to a favorite photo until you have a good story to write.
