I made the "Discover Play Create..." photo mat from a January 2004 Memories class using SEI papers. I used QK Paige to create "LIVE LAUGH LOVE", then realized that I did not have a second coordinating 12x12 sheet of SEI paper to create the right hand page. I thought of calling Tracy to see if she could hook me up with some if she had it in her stash... but then I decided to trim the SEI paper down (left page) and try to make something else work. I bought 2 sheets of yellow scalloped Bazzill and I mounted both SEI elements on it, then mounted on white cs. I know I said I wasn't gonna buy more stuff, but I only purchased 5 sheets of cs to complete scrapbooking all of 2004 (the rest all came from my stash!!!) Remember I also bought the Bazzill pink scalloped circle and pink Bazzill cs used for photo mats from the "Book Worms" layout. (Hey, I only spent ~$4 on the 5 sheets total). My crate of old kits is still looking full, but now I can rifle through each kit; they are not crammed full :) I will continue to try to use my stash first when I get going on 2005, but I'm sure I will have to buy some stuff. I'm not gonna force the pictures on an old kit just to use it up if they colors don't coordinate with my pics. I think I am happier with how this layout turned out than if I had only used SEI.
