I was mostly just playing with colors and types of ink on my background and ended up liking it - but - as you can once again see - it's blues. I admit it - I am a blue addict! So, I didn't really do much to the pages - but added a quote from Shakespeare and a few stickers (which I distressed a bit) from an old Anna Griffin scrapbook kit that's been sitting around for a long time. But, I liked the result anyway - as tulips are one of my favorite Spring flowers. I added a stamp from Bo Bunny's set Wall to Wall - it is old wood or barn siding. I didn't put anything behind the pages when I stamped it - so, it didn't look like old barn wood because the pages are lumpy - but I liked it anyway. This must have just been a "whatever is ok" day for me. I did go in after this picture was taken and distressed the edges of the pages.

Thanks for having a look at my "whatever" journal pages!
