'Thank you My GIU Friends' and 'Winners'!

Hi everyone! I hope you enjoyed my week for Growing in Unity!  THANK YOU SO MUCH for your kind words and your comments!  I have definitely fallen behind on my commenting on your blogs and will be doing that all this weekend!

I'm sharing my last project for this week's Growing in Unity, which is a double layout...yea, can you believe I'm actually posting a layout? *smile* I have 12x12 books for my son and I know I don't post my pages often, but I try to add to his books as much as I can. (I do need to add my journaling, which will be handwritten along the bashful blue c/s and on the kraft by the tags...I'm going to just journal all around.)

So have you heard of a progressive scrapbook page? Let me's when you first create a 6x6 page, like this one:

And then add the 6x6 page to an 8.5x11 page like this one (you probably can't tell, but I stitched the flower stem):

And then you add the 8.5x11 page to a 12x12 page like this one:

And here's my second page:

This process makes it much easier for me to create a layout and I don't just stare at my blank pages all day long!

Stamps: Unity Frame this Alpha, Everyday Adorable, Tiny Trinity; {ippity} A Moment in Time

And now for our Growing In Unity Winner....

JEN, love your progressive layout! I scrap 8x8 because I like the smaller size, I should try progressive might make it easier to handle!

Fabulous week! You did an amazing job with lots of fabulous inspiration!
