Another of my Smash Book pages...

So Sorry!!! I know I have not been posting a lot recently and have not participated in any challenges on the blog etc! I honestly do not know what happened. I guess time always flies by when we want it to stop... I had so much work recently with tons of paper work and loads of meetings and court appearances that I could not find a lot of spare time to do any crafting. Recently (this morning actually) just made a smash book page  and it took me only half hour or so (most of the time I spent on hand stitching the page).  So here is how the page looks:

It's quite a simple design but I think sometimes simple is better. I have printed a free background from the internet adding a quote written in the open office. Then added a DCWV paper from Tattered Time collection. With black pen I had drawn simple running stitch. On top of my photo I glued a Maggie Holmes' fabric frame in yellow and stack Dear Lizzy sticker saying. I cut 3 flags from papers from my stash and mounted the orange one on the top of the picture frame and 2 on the left side. I also hand drawn the stitching pattern. On the top orange flag I added 2 flowers with a button and a basic twine. Between the petals (not really seen on the photo)  I added Maya  Road's canvas button which I inked with Fire-brick red and added some perfect pearls. The top flower was painted using pink liquid pearls and the green button was from my stash. At the end I added a pebbles journalling card in the left upper corner and finished off the page doing back stitch around the entire page!   

I wanted to enter this page into a challenge:
