Here is page #2 from my Texan Owl Family Scrapbook.
This page is super duper easy! I just overlaid pretty papers, inked some edges, and stuck a flower on. (If you want to save some money, trim the papers you do not see so you can reuse them. I cut my blue card-stock in half so that I could use it as the background on two pages instead of just one.)
It is important to select a palate of colors to work with throughout your project. I found a really cheap package of paper that did it for me. Then, I pulled card-stock and embellishments that coordinated with the package of paper and stuck to those colors.
