Now that I have most of my supplies in coordinated kits, I like to use up as much as the kit as possible. Many times after making several pages, I find that I have a little pile of paper scraps and a few miscellaneous embellishments on my table. I then challenge myself to use up all of those leftovers on a layout.
Many times the pages that I make with the scraps turn out to be my favorites!
This page, featuring a photo of my kids playing a board game together, is one of those layouts. I played around with the paper I had left and made the background. I added the photo, then placed the embellishments. The striped patterned paper on the left was a perfect place for my journaling.
