Flag Retirement-Part 2

I've completed three pages with one of Scraptastic's new July kits, Nostalgic Summer, and can't wait to show them off. But I haven't stopped to photograph them yet! Whenever I work with these kits, I tend to create my pages all at once, literally laying them each out and planning which papers and pieces thereof will go where, before I make that very first fearful cut. Once I do hack into my papers, I'm on a roll, and can't tear myself away until they're done.

Meanwhile, here is the second page of the Boy Scout flag retirement ceremony. It's a mix of old and new, new Authentique patterned papers, an old bingo card, some ancient Rusty Pickle letters, a Sticker Studio sticker, an embossed metal from who knows where, and an envelope that I made a gazillion years ago.

 

 
Yeah, I put off the journaling...again. I get antsy to finish and don't finish. It's a very bad habit. Maybe I should add a few words and the date before I forget.

Here's the kit I've been working with this week. Off to do some more creating!

oh also - you have to catch up on your journaling! That is a bad habit! Just like me not putting my layouts in albums. oh you do not even want to know how many I have piled up.
