Fun with Sis



Well, after mooning over so many scrapbook layouts, I decided to to give it a go again.

This is what I came up with. If every layout took me as long as this one did, by the time I expire, I'll only have a handful done! But it was sure fun...I'll have to give it a whirl again soon.

This picture you've seen before, because it's one of my favorites with my sister. I don't have many pictures of myself when I was wee, and I remember this apartment and the fun I had with my sister in our "playroom" in that apartment. I have several memories of those apartments that are warm and fun. In the playroom, we had a small stove, refrigerator, table, and lots of other toys...I remember playing with my sister having so much fun...One very vivid memory (not in the playroom, but at that home) is when we were supposed to be sleeping...instead, the both of us were bouncing on our beds and jumping from bed to bed...and then in came the parents, followed with our shrill screams and laughter as they tried to coax us back into slumber.

I love this layout! That flower is so cute. What a lovely way to document the fun you've had growing up!

Yay! I love this!
I am going to officially start my "first" scrapbook. I know that sound silly since I am crafty... but until NOW (with being pregnant) I haven't had anything really worth scrapbooking! So I am pretty excited.

You know, even if you only get a handful done, they'll each be infused with love and meaning. This one is fabulous.

Inspirational Unity Blog Hop

I have three huge passions related to art: photography, jewelry making, and paper crafts. Above combines two of those passions: jewelry making and paper crafts. The necklace featured is a gift for a friend. I used Unity Stamp Company stamps in all the projects shown in the picture above. If you look closely, you'll even see that I used the Hawaiian Border and the swirls in the lambs fleece of Love Ewe to make the bronze charms in the jewelry above! Besides the stamps used, other materials included Bronz Clay, antiqued bronze findings, and various beads. Of course, what gift isn't complete without packaging? You can find the tutorial for the bag Here . Paper and cardstock, punches, and ribbon used are from Stampin Up! while the stamp used is from Unity's March Kit of the Month . People who know me know how I strive to use humor everyday...and especially to make light of otherwise stressful situations. So, my quote for the day has absolutely nothing to do w

Unity Blog Hop

My project today is a little mini album I put together to give to my daughter, who is exploring the possibility of traveling across America from Washington State to Delaware in July. I wanted to give her something to log and journal her adventures! I used stamps from Unity Stamp Company's June and November Kits of the Month for the cover. Inside the cover, I put a little note. She plans to hitch hike which is extremely bothersome to me. I want her to be safe! Maybe I'll suggest flying out and renting a car and doing a rode trip with her! That would curb my fears and will also be fun! The journal block comes from their September Kit . Unity Stamp Company is featuring a sale on their previous Kits! This is the time to get them if you don't have ENOUGH! See their sales here: Sales at Unity The inside pages were not made with a KOM stamp, but this stamp is cool all the same. I love this flower . It's big and has many uses! To start at the beginning of th

Growing in Unity - Day 5 {Be Your Own Beautiful}

Well, here we are, my last post for the week!  It's Friday, and I am happy to report that I survived my first 2013 work week (an entire three days, mind you) after my little break in December. I thought I would finish off the week with a bright and cheerful card. Because it's getting colder and colder, and this is how I'm choosing to fight off that chill (this and some hot yoga sessions at my local yoga center) ......oh, and delighting in the fact that after passing winter solstice, we are now seeing more daylight with each passing day! I'm going to slip this card in with my daughter's stuff (somehow) when I see her this weekend.  She is about to leave the country, spending the next several months abroad.  And if you remember, she did this a year or so ago.  It was difficult, because she is a bit of a nomad and off the grid when she's abroad (no phone/computer).  So, we don't talk as often as we do when she is "Home"....mostly whenever she i
