GROWING IN UNITY, DAY ONE SKETCH INSPIRATION

 
Thanks for stopping and welcome to Growing in Unity.  One of my goals for 2011 is to get back to scrapbooking.  So, for my week of Growing in Unity, you will see mostly scrapbook layouts.  This will also help with another goal of incorporating stamping in my scrapbooking.  I used an Ippity stamp and a Unity stamp in this layout.  I used the Good Time Vintage Banner on the twill ribbon across the bottom of the layout.  I used the date circle stamp from the Life's Little Moments Ippity set on vellum on the upper left side of the photo.  I used royal purple Staz-On Ink for both stamps.  This is a photo of our son graduating from Tarleton State University on December 18, 2010.  The patterned paper is from Creative Imaginations and Moxxie.  The stickers are from Creative Imaginations.  I drew the faux stitching around the layout with my Inksentials pen by Ranger.  I used a sketch #201 from Sketch Inspirations.  This is the first time I have used one of her sketches, but really love it.  Remember to leave a comment every day this week for a chance to win a set of Unity stamps.  Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day.
