I am thoroughly enjoying using my new stamps from UNITY.
 Yesterday I received the new Scrapbooking line sets released this SEPTEMBER and was able to whip up this layout of MYSELF.  I am having trouble believing that this photo is 11 years old.  WHERE did the time go?

I REALLY love ticket stamps and with these, I decided to stamp the tickets in a row and cut them out.  I stamped SPRING time months, because that is when this picture was taken.  I love that you can choose hearts, stars, and flowers for the ticket or leave it blank and use it for journaling.


This is me on my graduation day from university.  My Dad bought me a 12 string guitar and had my name engraved on it.

I had this banner lying around, so I threw that on the layout too!  I made it a while back using Good Times Vintage Banner stamp set from UNITY, fabric, and Shimmerz Spritz.

I used the block and arrow from Explore Today & Everyday.  I stamped the block onto KRAFT cardstock and cut it out.  I messed up on my hand writing, so covered it with good old WHITE OUT.  The arrow was stamped, cut out, and painted with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist.


And here is another layout I made using the heart from Donna Downey's stamp set "The Artist in You", and the scalloped circle, "a love beyond measure" and measuring tape from LeChic Vintage set.


I stamped the hearts onto the background paper, then again onto patterned paper.  I cut out the heart and glued it onto the layout.

Here you can see the scalloped circles and a love beyond measure stamps.  I thought that this photo of my daughter was so peaceful and still and thought that the title, stamps, and psalm just FIT.
