GIU Day 3

Welcome to Day 3 of Growing in Unity! I'm featured on Unity Stamp Company as the last Growing in Unity gal for 2015! I decided to include my Christmas pictures on another layout. It's been awhile since I've made any layouts and it feels good to make them again!
I fussy cut a stocking out of Pebbles Home for Christmas 12 x 12" Scrapbook Paper Pad that is shown above the picture of my stocking goodies. I used Recollections Bright and Jolly 12 x 12 Scrapbook Paper Pad for the main gift background paper and the title- Have Yourself a Cozy Christmas. I chose the gift paper since all the pictures are of gifts- 2 that I received and 2 that I gave. I added Annie's Paper Boutique Candy Cane Trendy Twine under the title to accent it a little.
close-up of Can't Imagine the Journey without you Unity stamp that I used VersaFine Onyx Black pigment ink- all stamps are Unity and I used the same ink- to stamp it with on typing paper
The journaling square is from Pebbles Home for Christmas 12 x 12" Scrapbook Paper Pad and states that Dustin gave us all a Chrome Cast to cast media from our tablets, laptops, and phones to the TV, we watched various shows and songs and had a great time. We watched Mr. Bean mini videos and laughed until we cried.

 close-up of heart stamp and my mom opening her gift from me- I gave her 2 IL Mulino frying pans. She just had Mohn surgery done on her nose a week before Christmas and a place on her right cheek frozen. Her dad, my grandfather, died in 2004 with melanoma so she gets any bumps checked out on her face. She had the stitches removed from her face Monday and will have the stitches removed from her nose in the morning or Wednesday when most of you read this. I didn't want to take too many pictures of her, because of her nose. I honestly didn't take that many pictures on Christmas Day. We enjoyed the day so much and had my aunt and uncle over for supper that I didn't think about taking pictures. Anyway, back to the layout!
this is a close-up of what I gave Mr. Ray, my stepdad, the card game Deer in the Headlights

the picture in the middle is what I received in my stocking

I can't wait to try out the coffee! I haven't tried it yet! It's the first coffee set that has been given to me! Please leave me a comment and come back tomorrow to see what I have to share. TFL and have a Happy New Year Eve Eve! :)

Oh, I'm glad to see you using stamps on a layout! It's good to remind us that Unity stamps can be used on all kinds of projects, not just cards. Looks like you had a fun Christmas and a great time with family.

Love to scrapbook and now since found Unity I can add some variety to my pages. Like that you stamped on white to make stand out against all the other colors of Christmas :-).
