Delving into old products that seem suddenly new

No sooner was my June Counterfeit Kit Challenge kit, *All A Flutter*, put into its kit box than it was pulled out again and created with. It was instantly inspiring me to get cutting. Got to love that.

That's one of the things I adore about this challenge. Your old(er) products seem to get a new lease of life once they are brought together for one of these kits.

This month, none of my products are so terribly old, but there are a few things in there that would be good to see used up rather than lounging around my room taking up space.

My goal again this month is to find a way to use up some of the millions of brads I have. I also want to use at least all the flowers I have pulled into the kit, if not some more. I have so many of these pretty paper flowers (and dozens more of the larger fabric flowers) that are just a little bit out of date these days. I need to incorporate some onto pretty pages rather than only ever thinking about the latest and greatest Prima beauties.

Anyway, using a Page Maps sketch as a starting point, I got straight down to it and created a simple page with a simple message.

Three brads and one of the flowers have found a new home - tick!

I'm learning to see the silver lining, but it's not natural for me... yet!
