Growing in Unity Day 2

Thanks for coming back for day 2 of my Growing in Unity post.

If you're a regular reader of my blog you know that I'm not a chronological scrapper.  I work with photos as they inspire me.  So at any time I could be working on current photos or those from way back to when my grandparents were children.... You also know we had a house flood from the icemaker that ruined a bunch of scrapbooks that were in the family room directly underneath kitchen in a split foyer house.  It was heartbreaking but thankfully I was able to salvage some photos & get copies from family members so from time to time I work on photos when the boys were young.  I actually enjoy it since they are now men these old photos transport me back to another time & I get to use the super cute products out there now recreating these family pages.

"Class Pix Day" - my oldest son Andrew's 3rd grade school photo.  I love this fun paper from Fancy Pants.


 
 

Stamps Used: "Star" - UK-328A This is the TIME (minature set), "U R SMART" - Sept Scrapbook KOTM (retired), "Schoolhouse" -KOM-AUG09 Following my Heart


Supplies:  Paper (Fancy Pants & Sassafras Lass); Cardstock (Bazzill); Chipboard Shape (Heidi Swapp); Ink (Hybrid);  Punch (Fiskars); Bingo Card (Jenni Bowlin); Brad & Clip (Joann's Craft Essentials); Metal Embellishment (Making Memories); Alpha Letters (American Crafts - Thickers); Adhesive (Tombow & ZVA Pop Dots)

Not only does Unity have a great monthly stamp kit but now they are offering a very limited edition scrapbooking kit.  In addition to a full sheet of super large stamps you get 12 sheets of scrapbook paper & a Hybrid ink pad.  I own them all except for November but I'm not letting December's kit slip thru my hands - if my hubby hasn't already ordered it for me for Christmas I'll be getting it for myself.  Here's a photo of both the sets.

What an adorable layout! The school from the KOTM is perfect with it. Sorry to hear about your scrapbooks getting flooded out, but I'm glad to hear that you were able to recover the photos from the originals and other sources.

I just love the layout! It's adorable!!! What a tragic thing to lose your pages. You are very fortunate to have been able to get copies of many of the photos.

Don't you wish they could stay like that forever? At least they can in pictures and scrapbook pages.
