Back to the Canadian Scrapbooker magazine, for this scraplift. I don't have the treading water punch so I used the SU! scallop punch and the SU 1/8" circle punch.
The base cardstock is Baja Breeze, the print is from ski slope, beautiful, beautiful, the scallop is Pink Pirouette, the font is the Taffy Alpha, and the party hats are from Party Harty. Have you ever bought a stamp set and then later kicked yourself for it??? I had the opposite happen to me for this layout. I wasn't sure about this set but I bought it because it was on sale and I thought, hmmm maybe.......I am so glad I bought it. It work perfectly for what I wanted it for with this layout.
I also should mention, I used white grosgrain ribbon and just slid it across my Pink Pirouette stamp pad a couple of times to make it pink.
So I own one Unity stamp. I won it during Hip Hop on SCS. Until I can get more I have to be happy with my ppphm friends who send me images.
This page is of my Chez who wore my clothes all over the place. She would just walk out of my room wearing another one of my maternity tops.
I used Close to Cocoa for a scrapbase, the dsp is retired but it was Western sky and Apple Cider. The ribbon is So Saffron 7/8" poly twill, and Alpine Ribbon Originals. If you haven't gotten your Alpine ribbon yet, GET.IT. It is so much more than just a Christmas ribbon.

Working my way through Waneeke's 4th birthday. I figured they had aged enough now that she is 6.
This layout is a great layout for my scrap to spend budget. One of the categories in it is "Old Embellishments". I am very good at using the new stuff I get right out of the box. After awhile, I forget I own it and it just sits there. I found this old old paper. It's the really cheap stuff you get at Dollarama, 6 sheets for $1, I wouldn't recommend it. I scraplifted this layout from Canadian Scrapbooker magazine. The outside edge in the magazine layout was drawn in but I had this ribbon, and it matched so I wanted to use it instead. The brads are silver and I covered the top with mono-multi liquid and then dipped them in cosmo glitter. I was also able to use images from WRAK. This page gave me $14 to put in my spend category.
I think this is my favourite quote for my sleeping sons. I am hesitant to use it though because it is a quote from Napoleon. It is a good quote non the less.
This entire layout was based on the ribbon. I found the ribbon while vacuuming and decided that I would use it that night. So once I had the ribbon, I found an old package of In Color paper from 07, ohhhhh Marigold Morning is my friend. Ruby Red matches the red in the ribbon.
I don't think this layout is really my style but I scraplifted it from the new edition of Canadian Scrapbooker. I really think it turned out cu-ute.
