Thanks to Ali's pre-designed opening page, I was able to put my album's opening page together very quickly last night.
My original idea was to have splashes of strong colour, but, once done, it didn't look or feel right. You can't really tell, but the white cardstock has been sprayed with Glimmer Mist ~ Diamonds. There's also a wee bit of stitching. I deliberately chose butterflies for the embellishments, because they are somehow hopeful. I read something today that is perfect to associate with my One Little Word ~ Better: You make your bouquet with the flowers within your reach.
