I used my new UNITY stamps again for this layout, using a few stamps from each scrapbook set you see below.

I wanted to take you through a bit of my scrapbooking process.  First, I consider using one stamp.  And I thought about this lovely BIG date stamp and I wanted it to be in the background and I knew I wanted to stamp it about 3 times. 


Then I went around my scrap room and pulled paper, embellishments, packaging, flowers, etc...all red, green and black.  I placed it all on top of my stamped dates, and then thought about that awesome swirl stamp from the Donna Downey stamp set "Where You Are".  So with Peeled Paint Distress Ink from Ranger, I stamped that BIG swirl in the gap.


And here is the final layout...entitled "1999".
