Gone Fishing

I love getting my new Studio Calico kits in the mail.  I look forward to it every month and can never wait to open it - I have to open it immediately!  The problem with getting my new kit is that the previous month's kit gets set aside and doesn't get as much attention as it should.  That is why I try to make as many layouts (that's usually 2 or 3 for me) as I can before the new kit arrives.  
I had some photos of time spent fishing this summer on my vacation in Wisconsin.  I was trying to make something work with the current month's kit and it just wasn't happening.  I went back through some older kits and found the perfect embellishments and paper for my page.  The kit I ended up using was from January 2011, Who's Who.
Everything on my page came from the kit except for the chipboard letters were from another kit.  I had to cut the tail off of a couple of j's because I had run out of i's in this set of letters.
The lake that we are fishing on, Potato Lake, is where my husband and I had our wedding more than eight years ago!  
I always feel good about using up some of my older supplies, so this layout made me happy!
Have a great weekend everyone!
