Thank you orkan, for this interesting challenge. I often use this kind of background for scrap pages.

Thank you for the challenge Sue. It felt great to use Photoshop again to create my own background paper. Here is my photo and two papers. I don't know why the textured paper looks blurry online. It is sharp in Photoshop. By looking at everyone's submissions I realized that I forgot to combine this into one document before submitting it online. By uploading it this way I now have my limit for the day. Darn! Everyone's papers are beautiful!!!!
