52 Week Scrapbook Challenge - White on White

This was a really fun challenge for me! It turns out I have no white papers other than  plain white cardstock from Michaels. So it was fun to try to make this page pretty and full of texture using just that paper, and a few other "bits & bobs", of course! Yes, that is a picture of me that was taken just a FEW years ago! lol I had to keep the color scheme going, right? :o)

This is WONDERFUL!!! I love the way this looks. All of the white elements you've used show up and compliment each other. OH MY GOODNESS!!! You've used some of that sheer paper over the plain white card stock and you've created a stunning flower with it!!

Nancy, you have such an adorable photo of yourself and this page really makes it pop :-) All of your elements show up individually. Love those little flowers with the pearl centers and your stick pin thing is amazing.

Fantastic job. Go ahead, pat yourself on the back. You deserve it.
Love you - Leslie

Suddenly realised I hadn't commented on this beautiful page. Gorgeous white on white you have made all the elements stand out when they could easily have been lost. The fan flower and pin is beautiful as are the other flowers and pearls.
Cute photo of you Nancy :) Love the embossed background too. So much texture.
Love and hugs
