cardstock: white, bright pink, light pink
other: corner rounder; black rub-on words; chipboard brackets and ampersand; six felt flowers; three brads; three buttons

Step-by-Step Instructions
1. Round the corners of a 10-1/2x7-3/4" rectangle of white cardstock and center it on an 11x8-1/2" sheet of bright pink cardstock. Mount the photo on the right side of the white cardstock.

2. Print the journaling on light pink cardstock, cut it into strips, and adhere them in the lower left corner of the page.

3. For the title, Ali added rub-on words to a chipboard piece and attached the chipboard accents above the journaling. Finish with felt flowers, brads, and buttons along the left edge of the photo.
