Scrapbooking with Confetti

I made a Card with Confetti . But what about a scrapbook page? I was prompted by the Basic Grey Challenge (see here )--Incorporate Confetti into The Design. Well, here I go again. This time I attempt to make a page with  Sakura confetti. These tiny tiny sakuras were sent to me from my friend Jane in Taiwan. I had them like... forever and today is the day to share a project with the little darling confetti. 
LIVE in the moment
The flowers are so small that I had to use a pair of tweezers to pick up each individual one and placed them as if they are flying away from the pocket!
This layout all started out with the stamped flowers on Basic Grey paper, then before you know it,  one thing led to another, a page was "born"! 
 I rarely make a page for my photo. BUT this picture seems so perfect with a pocket-ful of flowers! It feels very satisfying when a layout comes together easily. Aaah...the joy of creating! Thank you for allowing me to indulge myself today :)  

PS: my talented friend Kathy W. is having a giveaway in her blog (see Wading in Creativity ). I hope you check her blog out!
