Good Bye Cuba

And this is the end of Cuba! I am so happy to be done this book! I know so many scrappers follow the philosophy of I scrap what I want not chronologically but I can't work that way. It's a personal preference. I find if I don't do it all at once, I won't come back to it. I know this because I tried it once. It's like my stash pile ... if I don't use it right away it will sit for a long time and I have to really challenge myself to use it. And so I stick with chronological scrapping. This nice part is I am usually no more than a year behind!

I have been on a use up old supplies kick lately and for this layout I was determined to use some old prima flowers I have had kicking around for quite sometime.  Even with this many flowers on this layout, I still have a full jar left!  I think I might have to do this more often if I want to make a dent in that stash!  Do you have any neat ideas for using flowers you would like to share?
