Growing in Unity Day 3

Hello Friends,

I made this adorable layout with the NEW Simple Stories scrapbook line. My LSS where I work got it in and I fell in love with all the lines..I love that Unity co-branded stamps for all the lines!! They are adorable.

This is a portrait of my family that I had taken back in March of this year. Faith is the one peaking over our shoulders and Emilee is on my lap. I mixed it up and used the Itty Bitty  Snapshots from the Simple Stories Destination line. I also used the Itty Bitty Monthly Circle from the Simple Stories Life Documentated line. I LOVE using stamps on a scrapbook page to document the date. It's an important element that should have a place on every page you create!
The circle monthy stamp is here in the corner. I was not sure if I would like it there so I took a scrap piece of paper from the Tim Holtz Halloween kraft stack and flipped it over! I cut it out and Voila!!!  LOVED it!!
Thanks for stopping by..Leave a comment and you could win a stamp kit from Unity!
