Scrap the Boys May Challenge

Hi There Everyone,

Doesn't everyone like to get a little down and dirty sometimes?  Well this months challenge at Scrap the Boys is all about just that!!!  

This month the challenge is:

You need to use a photo of your boy(s) getting dirty, this could be anything from mud, paint, dirt, cooking, eating and so on...
I also want your photo to inspire your layout is some way.

Here is my layout:

Had loads of fun with this making the background messy.  I used lots of stamps on this layout and lots of running mist.

I used loads of Unity Stamp Co. stamps:
A Bit of Burlap
January SMAK Kit
Boys Rule
You Did It
Splatters and Stars - All Boy

There are so many things you can do with a stamp!

There is still time to get your entry into this months challenge.
Head on over to Scrap the Boys and give it a go!!

Thanks for stopping by!

I am a Unity Girl!!!

Hi there,


Next BIG NEWS, I have been keeping a little secret. I AM A UNITY GIRL!!  Woot Woot.  I have been such a massive fan of Unity Stamp Company for such a long time. I think I harrassed Angela for months on when they might have their next design team call. 

I waited patiently, and then in late February she announced her first design team call
in a long time.

I thought I am going to apply and put it out there and wish upon a star and hope
my dreams come true.


I am on the UNITY DESIGN TEAM!!!!!

Here is my first assignment:

This is Lucas each year over the last three years. 

We were given this amazing sketch from Angie Blom to play with as a salute to
National Scrapbooking Day.

I rotated this sketch just to do something a little different.

I used the following AWESOME stamps.

I used lots of stamps off this December SMAK Kit.  I have been a subscriber of the SMAK Kit for a long time and I love receiving these kits every month. 

I also used the numbers off this January SMAK Kit

and the Ruler for the journalling off February SMAK Kit.

THESE SMAK Kits are on Sale for $26
ends Midnight Sunday.

How cool is that?

So head on over to the Unity Stamp Co. website and grab yours now.

Also, another amazing opportunity:

This is your chance to become a guest designer and get $100 in FREE STAMPS!!
Just head to Splitcoast Stampers and give the sketch a go yourself!

It is a Dream come True for me to be on this team.
I look at all the talent and cannot believe I am a part of it!
But I am!!!

Thank you Angela for believing in me.
I will be forever grateful for the opportunity.
I hope I can make you proud.
