My first real scrapbook page

Happy Spring!  That is the theme of my first ever, created from scratch, scrapbook page.  I received the most beautiful Scrapbook with about 20 pages created by a friend of the family when I had my twin sons in August 2011.  All I had to do was add photos, which I thought was the most thoughtful present.  Only now (8 months later) have I been able to sit down and actually do that.  I was invited to go to a Crop session with some friends at a local scrapbooking store.  We were there for 6 hours!!  It was so much fun and having the run of the store was really neat. I was hooked.  So I thought, well, I better start getting creative and do my own pages, from scratch. Now I'll admit that even being a "creative" person, I have always felt overwhelmed by scrapbooking. SO many options!!!  And then I thought, with Earth Day here and all, that I could probably use what I have around the house (along with my meager stash of stickers, papers and embellishments) to create a cute page.  So here is what I came up with:
I thought it came out pretty cute.  I used a couple of easter cards the boys received to create the flower and circle details - upcycling!!!  Here is one of the cards that I used. I can't wait to get started on my next page!
