Vintage photos and paper roses

I've been making more of my favorite paper roses! This time, they were for a layout I made for this month's challenge at Webster's Pages Inspire Me site. (sorry, you'll have to copy and paste) The challenge was to make a layout using vintage photographs. I found that WP's Life's Portrait line was perfect for the soft look I wanted for this photo of my mother's parents on the day of her wedding.
The background was a little too strong for my tastes, so I used a layer of gesso to blur the pattern. And I thought the little chandelier rub-on made a great addition to the upper corner of the photograph. Of course, the flowers are my favorite part:
It's preview time at all my favorite scrapbook companies. Webster's has released a peek at one of their lines already:

Doesn't it look yummy? I can't wait to get my greedy little paws of some!
