School Days - using Authentique, Want2Scrap, and Unity Itty Bitty

Happy Monday Blends!

about a dear Blend, 


 I had a fun weekend that was quite relaxing
and enjoyable.
On Saturday, my SFF (Sweet Friend Forever), Heather Lynn
and I, both got to visit 
Erica and her mom, Jackie
for some fun Crafty Time.

I started a layout that I have been eager to get done.
When I first peeked at 
I couldn't wait to get out
my fabulous Glory Papers and Authentique stamps by Unity
and get started.

Here is the Sketch

here is my finished layout
All the papers are from the Authentique Glory Collection 
with the exception of the Navy card stock and Red card stock.  
The background paper is "Allegiance" and the patterned papers are "United".
The Red card stock is by American Crafts (Damask).

Here is a close up to show the fun 
Authentique Happy Day Itty Bitty stamp by Unity Stamp Co.
inked with Tim Holtz - Barn Door.

I will be entering this layout into the 

 The border at the top of the page
is a sticker from the same Glory Collection kit.

The title stamp school days
was inked using ColorBox-Merlot.
The weekdays on the banner were
inked using Color Box-Dune.
The report card journaling spot
was inked using Color Box-Brown.
All three stamps are from the Simple Stories set by Unity
called smarty pants.

 The rosettes were created by cutting the coordinating card stock
into 3 strips into 1" X 12" strips then scoring
them every 1/4".
The button centers were chosen from my stash.
I did adhere each rosette down onto a 2" inch punched circle.

This fabulous bling above is a wonderful prize I won
from the sweet Barbara Ohanlon in the
fun Scrapbook Deals group on Facebook.

The bling is by Want2Scrap
and is called Funky Swirles - Silver Rhinestones

and Get Your Bling ON!

The rustic stars were purchased at my LSS and I grabbed up on 
a few while shopping.  They really add a nice detail to the already fantastic
Authentique Papers. 

Keep Crafting
