So was I sewing or scrapping?

Hi there Ladies.
I have just come home from the opening of our friends store Sfragidomania.It was lovely to see all my Greek scrapbooking friends, I had not seen them since before summer.
Today I want to share with you a L.O. that I made for Elins's challenge. we were to use only one paper and one title. I thought of this challenge whilst putting up hems of about 8 pair of trousers.......I much rather could have been scrapping,you understand?
I used the pieces of denim that I cut off of the trousers to make  flowers you can watch the video here Zeffyk on USTREAM

I used a Hambly die cut and some Hambly transparency ( I won them at the Lotto at our last crop!)
I sewed around the 2 sides of my paper with my sewing machine.
I was doing this L.O. on USTREAM and I had pulled out some Basic Grey alphas that would have worked perfectly, But then I realised they were paper,and we were not to use any other paper! So I decided to write my title,and then just highlight it with some Glossy Accents.I also had an embossed matal strip that I used,as well as a little scissors charm. Once I did my journaling I decided to stamp around the page, I wanted the stamping to look like embroidery.
