National SCRAPBOOKING DAY!

Good morning! :) Today is National Scrapbooking DAY!!! YEAH!! :) Are your photos printed? Are you ready?
The May/June Unity Scrapbooking kit is up!! Melody Ross did an AMAZING job!!
The Unity gals have some fun to share with you in honor of the occasion.
Be sure to start over at the Unity blog so you don't MISS a thing! :)
Here are my layouts----- :)

First off.....my 2 youngest boys....they are so adorable together. These 2 photos just capture their special connection. Truly amazing! :)

Stamps: Capture Life, Odds & Ends, Vintage Ledger Paper: Courture Cardstock, Making Memories Panorama line Ink: PTI vintage cream & ranger distress ink Other: cropadile, jumbo eyelet, canvas corp jute, American crafts thickers & slicker


Next, I have a double page layout. AND it is all about me. Silly? Well..usually I make mini books and pages for my kids. This time...I picked pictures of things that I love outside of my family. :) Look at all those amazing women I get to visit with. Lucky duck, right?



Stamps: Favorite Things, Scalloped Journal Ink: versamark watermark, memento Paper: Courture Cardstock Other: white embossing powder, copic marker, American Crafts thickers
Happy National Scrapbooking DAY!!

Amazing and inspiring pages. I'm not much of a scrapbooker. :( I've just made some for gifts so no pics. I might have to try this challenge.
