Growing in Unity - Day 2 + giveaway

Welcome to Day 2 of my Growing in Unity week.

My project today is an 8.5" x 11" layout of Jess. The photo was taken a couple of weeks ago after we'd been to pick up the boys from school. The rain had been bucketing down and even though we had waterproofs on we got absolutely soaked.


I stamped the clouds from "A Pocket Full of...." on to various patterned papers before cutting them out and layering them. The sun from the same kit was stamped straight on to the cardstock and then coloured with Promarkers before being journalled in.
The "rain, rain go away" from Adventures in Happiness was stamped on to the layout using chalk ink.

Materials used: Bazzill cardstock, Papermania "Summer Garden" patterned papers and fabric ribbons, Unity stamps (as above), black Versafine ink, Promarkers, Versamagic chalk ink, Heidi Grace plastic embellishments and pink alphabet stickers, Making Memories tiny alphabet stickers, My Mind's Eye buttons, Maya Road ribbon, black Sakura pen.

I have a bag of goodies to give away today including some of the Maya Rd ribbon, Heidi Grace embellishments and buttons like the ones used on this layout.
I'll draw a random winner from all comments left by Sunday 15th 11.59pm GMT and post the winners name on Monday.

I love this and the colours are so delicate.

I always love how you capture and record the *everyday* and not just the big stuff.
