Unity....One of My Favorite Things.

Happy Thursday!!! :) How did your St. Patrick's Day go? Are you ready for some Unity?

Here is a mini album that I created from the current Favorite Things Scrapbooking/Collage Collection. It is AMAZING!!! I just love this new Crate line!!! :) Besides the stamps, hybrid ink haystack & patterned paper that comes with collage collection ALL that I used from my stash was the album, some thickers, a dark brown ink, and one sole copic marker to color in the hearts. Isn't that FABULOUS! What a deal. :)

Love This Life, Love My Boys
You might NOTICE that I used 2 pictures from previous layouts...because I LOVE them THAT much! :) I best start taking more photos if I am going to keep up with my scrapbooking! :) HA!

Each of my 3 kids have 2 pages in the album. :) I used 4 different stamps from the kit for each set of pages. Can you guess which ones? :)

Some of my favorite things about Jordan-
1- His well hidden goofy side.
2- His work ethic & determination.
3-How we can talk about life for hours.

Some of my favorite things about Maxwell-
1- His sense of humor and love of life.
2- His sweet, compassionate & tender heart.
3-His love of learning and trying new things.
Some of my favorite things about Calvin-
1- His curious nature and questioning about life.
2- His strong will and independent spirit.
3-The range of emotions he shares with only those he loves.
I love this photo of Jason holding Calvin's hand. You will most likely see that one again. :)
Okay. I hope you love it as much as I do. I know, I am biased...but what mother wouldn't be?
Be sure to hop on over to the Unity blog to find links to the other design team members to see what Unity yumminess they have to share. :)
