Make It: Pops of Green, Yellow and Pinks

I've fit tons of hiking in this summer, which makes me a happy camper. (No pun intended but okay, maybe pun intended.) I'm really trying to capture all the fun I'm having so I'll remember these moments. I'm working on a 6x6 album of my hikes so I thought I'd show you one page.

Do you match your scrapbook pages to the photo? If I were to match the colors of my photos, they'd all be green and blue because they are all from hikes. That is too limiting so I rarely do that.
I started my album with a color scheme: black/white, mint and peachy colors. Well, that stuck around for a few pages (I'll post them later) but then the album took a decided turn towards POPS of color! This entire layout was inspired by some paper flags/pennants I made from thick white paper, watercolor, ink, washi tape and a flag craft punch. I am so in love with these flags that I decided to build an entire page based on one. 
So here's the breakdown of the page, should you want to try this look yourself. The layout is my go-to style so I probably need to mix it up a bit on my next page. 

I'm making a lot of embellishments myself, which is really fun! (But time consuming, I must say). I made several of these embellishments with my Silhouette Cameo, which is the one craft tool I can't live without.
