Designer Tip: You can adapt most themed papers into something else by using punches. You are not limited to just flowers, you can use hearts, stars, clouds, etc. You can also use diecuts or an electronic cutting machine (such as a Cricut) instead of punches, too.
The background paper is Quick Quotes' Windsong WS-103. Windsong papers are mostly light with subtle designs and make a great alternative to plain white cardstock for backgrounds. The photos were printed with my new Cannon Selphy CP1200. (I still can't believe I can go from having an idea, to photographing it, to having the prints on a page in just minutes!)
You know how much I love my PowderPuff Chalking Inks, and I couldn't resist using them all over this page. After punching out the borders, flowers & leaves, I edge them with Rose Petal, Limeade, Buttercup & Sky Blue inks and a blending tool. I then used the same colors to add splatters to the background and to stamp "spring" for a colorful title.
