Growing in Unity Day 5

It's Friday and that means it's my last day as a Growing In Unity gal.  It sure has been a fun week and you all have been so sweet and your comments have made my day(s)!  It's also Friends With Flair Friday over on the Unity blog so be sure to stop by there for lots of wonderful inspiration!
I had so many projects I wanted to share with you all during my time as GIU gal and it was tough to choose but today I decided to show you a layout.  My first traditional layout in almost a year!  Crazy, I know!  My craft time is so limited these days that I normally keep up on my family's memories through a Project Life style album (greatly embellished with lots of Unity stamps of course).  I was inspired to scrap a traditional layout when I snapped this great picture of my wonderful hubby playing in the yard with the kids.  It deserved to be a centerpiece!
I love the recent chalkboard art craze and this was my first time playing around with it.  Definitely want to play around some more and Unity has such great stamps for this!

Unity stamps used:  My Dear (ornate flower in top left corner), June 2013 SMAK (heart), Modern Chit Chat (heart bubble), Generations (always & forever), April 2013 KOTM (photo love and best dad ever), March 2013 SMAK (arrows, hand, count your blessings chalk art).
Other supplies:  black card stock, white chalk ink, Momento Rose Bud ink, Amy Tangerine sketchbook stickers and die cut, washi from Target.
