Scrapbooking 'Old School"

At this year's National Scrapbook Day event at Treasured Memories, I decided to use up supplies from my 'oldies but goodies' section in my art room.  Using up product I already owned inspired me to scrapbook Old School Style.  It was a kick and I had a blast.  Next time you pack for a crop try pairing your newer purchases with supplies you already own. After all, you bought it because you liked it. So here are a couple of my finished products.
