A Little Bit of Old With a Dash of New

I keep a family album and an album for each of my kids.  So this weeks layout is using pictures that I had already made one layout with and needed to duplicate. So I headed to my nifty paper drawer and started digging to see what paper I had that might work for Jason and Brock's father and sons camp out.  This old and long retired paper packet, "Great Outdoors" was perfect. To spice up the layout I added some much newer products including the chip board squares that I stamped on using the stamp set "Homestead Alphabet." I also added some chocolate ribbon and a few chocolate brads. Finally I added a little more dimension with the scallop boarder found in the Dimensional Element "Boarders" collection and a little bookplate from the Dimensional Element "Booksmart" set.  The great thing about this project is that all though I was using some old retired products and some new products all the colors matched perfectly because of our consistent palette of colors. Yea CTMH!
