I Scrapbooked Some Unity!

Today I have the pleasure of being part of the Unity Design Team's blog hop that is showcasing this month's Stampin Store Kit called Believe in Fairytales.


Look at these beauties!!  Every image is just wonderful!  What a very useful kit!! I plan on using mine over and over again!  Folow the link above to learn more about this kit and find a store where you can purchase it.  This kit is only for sale in retail stores and not on the Unity site.

I have a scrapbook layout to share with you today!


Promise me that you aren't going to laugh at me!


You promise???



It has been a long time since I scrapbooked, but when I saw one of the images in this month's store kit I knew exactly what I wanted to do (even though I also knew it would put me in a position to be laughed at!)

One year ago tomorrow (20 pounds lighter and much tanner) I was in my BFF's hotel room getting ready to marry the man of my dreams Tom!  Here's a picture of us!



We were all so excited for this big day that I had anticipated and dreamed about for so long.  We were taking pictures of me getting ready in the bathroom while I was taking care of all the final details. 


When I got the photos back I was shocked to realize that we had forgotten one small detail in all our excitement!  So here I am, the Queen of the Day, in all my glory...





Now check out my throne....




OOPS!!!  Didn't mean for that to happen!! LOL!!

OK you have my permission... you can laugh at me too!!


Here is what my journaling says...



Here are  the Unity Stamps that I used to make this layout:

Crown, "If the Crown fits" sentiment and journaling block (November 2009 Stampin Store Kit:  Believe in Fairytales)
Decorative border strip and corner (November 09 Scrapbooking Kit: Capture Life)

Other supplies:  Ink: Amuse; DP: Creative Imaginations; Flowers: BG and Kaiser; Decorative Brad: Creative Imaginations; Rhinestones: Michael's; Title Font: Reprise Title; Arrow and Title words: Created in Power Point.


To see the rest of the DT members posts using the November Stampin Store Kit,
please go to Angela's blog and follow the list!

Also remember that there is a 30% off sale going on all weekend at Unity!!
What a great time to stock up on some of those stamps you have been dying to have!!





Thanks for all your help yesterday helping me choose the card I will give to my husband for our Anniversary!  70% of you chose yesterday's collage card and so that is what he will be getting!!


Scroll down for sneak peeks of some of the new
Whimsie Doodles digistamps
being released tomorrow.


I will be back tomorrow with samples using the new WD's but for now I am off to finalize my Dirty Dozen projects for this month's Fan Club Gallery that goes live tonight at Midnight!!


Have a great day and may your bucket overflow with lots of laughter, even if it is at yourself!  :-)

I have a beautiful picture of my daughter (almost) at her wedding...she was getting dressed and was stooped down so her maid of honor could fasten her necklace on and all you can see of her friend is her hair and it looks like it is part of the top of my daughters head....wowie...what a tall "do"....LOL!!!

lillianchild said...

So many times, I find things in photos that I had no idea I had captured - I laughed out loud at your throne story - thanks for sharing and know that we are probably in the majority when it comes to faux pas photo shots.

Sharon said...
