Vintage and roses

Hi you all!
I have made a Layout for the challenges at OOAH (photo) and Artful Times (vintage).
I have used a photo of my Great Aunt Fanny. I know I have used her photo a lot, I just like it! She loved pretty things, flowers - especially roses -,pink and wearing a flower in her hair, so I have tried to get all these things into the LO.
The background paper (prima) has been stamped with a rose motive  and my script stamp, both from LaBlanche . All other bits and bobs were in my stash. The photo has been cut with a Sizzix oval die.






I am also linking to Pan Pastels Challenge, 'bling it'

Have a good day you all, and thanks for coming by!
