A scrapbook page

This page was inspired by the Simple Recipe Prompt on UKScrappers that suggested using pink, brown and grey. Not a colour scheme I would normally use but as it was to use up scraps and I am determined to scrap more this year I gave it a go. I began with the hot pink cardstock background and a grey strip down the side from a TH paper pack. I found the chocolate birds on scrap paper (don't know who made it) and also cut some birds out of that for the birds at the top.
I had covered the birds at the top in glossy accents but didn't like it so swiped with white paint. The flowers were old flowers that I had no idea what to do with and I used some brown ribbon and lace to make the other flower. The journalling describes our middle daughter at a younger age when she was either very good or...
For my birthday my lovely children bought me some metal, metal tools and tape to feed my latest obsession with metal and it came with some mini stamps too...
