Start with a 12x12 pieces of cardstock for the base. Select 2 coordinating pages of pattern paper. Cut the 1st paper into various strips, one 6 x 11 ½ and two 3 x 11 ½ position the 3” strips along the top and bottom of the page. Cut the second page in strips as well one 8 x 12 and a 4 x 12, layer the 8” in the center of the page followed by the 6” and the 4” strips until pleased with the base. Add trim along the top and bottom of the center strip. Mat a 4x6 photo as well as 2 wallet size photos using the second sheet of cardstock and arrange on the page as shown. Layer 3 tags under the third layer and add a journaling spot under the tags then stamp the title/sentiment on the journaling spot. I created the flowers using some scraps of cardstock; I used a dark and light pink, beige and gold cardstocks. Stamped 2 large and 2 small flowers on each and cut using the coordinating dies, ink all the petal edges pink and snip between each petal. Crease and fold back each petal add brown glitter to the centers of the small flowers and layer alternating colour cardstock. Stamp 18 leaves crumple and arrange as shown on the layout. Finish of the page with crystal flourishes and a resin bird bath.

And here is a close up of the gorgeous blooms on this page...
