Makeover Monday: Updating an Old Kit

Back in 2005, I attended a Scrapbook Expo crop in San Diego, CA.  I received a kit as part of my admission and it has basically sat in my Unfinished Projects Box all these years.

I really didn't want to follow the design directions for it- they were outdated and I just didn't like it!  I decided to challenge myself to make a couple of layouts using these items and this is what I came up with:

I added a watercolor painting B had created as the background.

I worked on this page at a crop. I had limited supplies and only used what I had on hand.

It was fun to try this self-challenge and I plan on doing it again soon.  It is a good way to use up my overflowing box of UFP and get back to what truly matters:  The Story.
