Another Kit Challenge LO

Here's the second of four pages created with my homemade "kit", built around the papers of BasicGrey's What's Up collection:

I always have a hard time with school portraits, and they don't often make it to a scrapbook page, but this was Brendan's first professional photo after the braces came off and his smile was such a knock-out that I couldn't resist the attempt. The Journey chipboard is an old "leftover" that was colored way back in the day, and yet it coordinated perfectly. I added words, a ticket, stickers and a fleur-de-lis rub-on and voila!

Isn't it great when long lost scrappy items are re-discovered and make their way onto a page?! I still remember how much I loved this set of embossed chipboard. Another piece in the collection was misted, inked, cut apart and used to embellish this page created for Lifetime Moments back in 2009:

Tomorrow, I'll be back with a third page from the same build-your-own-kit. Wow...I feel so productive!
