Day 3 of Unity

Today I am going to share another layout with you.  It may look like the papers don't go with the pictures...but I love it.  See, my son just got his first black eye this past month.   The day of his graduation actually (Kindergarten graduation).  And I made it look pretty.  :)  Really I just chose to focus, not necessarily on the black eye, but on the son who was loving his sister and showing her his black eye.  


And some close up's:


When I showed my hubby this layout, he said "ah...you forget the r."  Thanks babe.  No, I did that on purpose too.  I referred to the black eye as a "shiner" in the journaling.  I liked the idea of using just "Shine" for the title.  But as you can see, I did end up adding a small {er} after the title.  :)  

The stamps I used for this layout were from the kit of the month from May--"Another Sweet Day" from, of course, Unity Stamping Company.   

Don't forget to come back tomorrow...I have an awesome project on canvas for you, and a giveaway!  :)  

Supplies for "Shine":
Papers--Websters Pages, Stamps--Unity Stamp Company, Ink and Markers--Stampin' Up!, Lace--Websters Pages, Gems--Prima Marketing, Thread--DMC.

Too funny! The first thing I thought, too, was that you forgot the 'r'. Then I noticed the {er}. I think it is a great layout!

I have some of those pics of my kids. I should probably go ahead and scrapbook them before I forget how they managed to bang themselves up.
You sure got a great page out of it!
