This was a page inspired by Aymee Gandy aka A Southern Belle. I saw her exploding star and knew I wanted to give it a try. I didn't care for this patterned paper so I was willing to take a chance and do something different with it. If it didn't turn out right, I could just toss it and I wouldn't be bothered since I didn't like the paper. Well it turned out fine to me and I actually like the paper a bit better once I finished. Thanks Aymee!
