Preschool Days

I cannot believe I have a preschooler!  Seems like just yesterday I was bringing her home from the hospital and now she's going off to school 3 mornings a week and asking to stay longer when I pick her up!?!  I am so proud of her, she's doing phenomenal for a 3 year old who has never been in day care or away from her mama aside from a very occasional overnight stay with grandparents.
Having a preschooler also means that this scrapbooker finally got a chance to do a back to school layout and play with all of my awesome school themed Unity stamps!!!
Here we go...
Inspired by the bright blues and pinks in my daughter's first day of school outfit I used some Amy Tangerine Sketchbook papers.  My favorite thing about using stamps in my projects is that instead of being limited by the school themed products on the market I can make my own embellishments to match my pictures with my stamps.  You can use stamps over and over and the possibilities are endless!
Here are some details:



 I made this layout to play along with the current Unity Challenge (banners) and had a ton of fun making this eclectic banner.  I am also playing along with Friends with Flair this week so leave a comment for a chance to win some Unity stamps.  Every Monday one lucky commenter from all of the Friends with Flair entries is chosen to receive a grab bag of Unity goodness!

Unity Stamps used: Smarty Pants (school days, smarty pants, MTWTF, and report card), ABC, 123 Washi (alphabet and numbers), Garden Variety (cute), Simple Pointers (noteworthy), Bitty Regards (proud of you), August SMAK (formula for success tab), September SMAK (date pencil), Champ (pennant banner), Love in Return (banner), Game Day Chili (small banner)

Supplies used:  Amy Tangerine Sketchbook papers and embellishments, EK Success notebook border punch, Smash washi tape, american crafts embossing powder.

Happy weekend and thanks for visiting!
