D-Lish Scraps - Scrapbook Page - Inspiration Board

Hi Again! I have a scrapbook page to share today, that I worked on today. I have a stash of "selfies" printed up, ready to make scrap pages out of. If you've been following my story, I had weight loss surgery in April this year, I've lost a total of 76kg (167 pounds, in a year) This photo was taken in September, when I was first able to see the changes myself -
I used patterned paper (the kraft one) from Teresa Collins, the stars and flowered ones are off cuts from Echo Park Paper, and are super super old collections! I also used a gold foil doily to fill some space, and the flourish is from Twiddlybitz, which I've covered in white embossing powder.  
In this pic, you can see some paper flowers, a button, a resin rose and a heart pin also, a close up of that delightful foil doily! I also added a small amount of twine, curled in on itself, and a Pink Paislee star.
This corner, near the photo includes the title, made with stickers from My Minds Eye, a flair button and an ampersand die-cut. I added some more twine, paper flowers and Pink Paislee stars. 
I used the D-Lish Scraps Inspiration board as a starting point, using the "nautical" colour scheme, as well as the sketch, but altered it for my own design!
