Happy National Scrapbooking Day!

Hey everyone! Happy National Scrapbooking Day! If you haven't already checked out the Unity blog today definitely be sure to head on over there. Angela has lots more eye candy to look at as well all sorts of scrappy goodies to give away. There are a ton of AMAZING prizes that you definitely will not want to miss out on!

I created this layout of my sweet hubby using my favorite image from the May Kit of the Month. I always think the KOM cannot get any better but every month Angela and her talented team of designers continue to amaze me. I absolutely LOVED this month's kit!

My hubby is my best friend. We've been together since we were 16 years old and he is the best man I know hands down. HE is my home sweet home and this layout signifies how I feel when I am with him.


There are just so many things you can do with this fun little house stamp. I stamped mine on kraft cardstock and then cut it out. I then paper pieced the house body with some patterend paper and the heart with some red cardstock. I used the smaller heart as a guide for my hand stitching.

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to do something scrappy today! :)
