Hip Hop {Thursday}

Yeah, yeah, yeah, I know it's not Thursday. :) However, we didn't think you would join us on Thanksgiving day, so we thought we would catch you a day early! You should be joining me from Christi's awesome blog. If not, please hop back to the beginning to the Unity blog! You certainly wouldn't want to miss today's fun!

I decided to do two layouts for you this week. I have a ton of old photos that need to be scrapped. So, that is what I tackled. The first layout is of my sister and I back in 1967 when our dad was in Vietnam serving our country. Thank you, Dad! We love you, and we are proud of you!

For this layout, I chose the Basic Grey Wassail papers because I thought they were perfect for the photo. I also used two frames, the month, and the numbers stamps from the Unity Our Life Our Stories set. I LOVE that set! And it is on sale today! I used a lot of Stickles too but it is hard to see in this picture.For my second layout, I decided to scrap this picture of myself when I got my Raggedy Ann doll back in 1965. Yes, I still have her! I used a mix of papers on here along with the Unity Amazing Me set and that flower freebie again. I love that flower! Can you find it on here? :)
And yes, you have finally reached the end of the hop and that means blog candy!!!! If you want to received some fun new Unity rubber, you must leave a comment here. I will be giving away the Oh Happy Day set! It is such a great, versatile set with two backgrounds! So, leave your comment, and I will announce the winner in the Unity Hip Hop thread on Splitcoaststampers later tonight! Have a joyous Thanksgiving everyone!

My DD had a homemade Raggedy Ann, she was riding in the back seat when I was going down hill through the woods on a windy curvy narrow road. Window was open. She tossed Ann out. Uh oh. There was no way I could stop to retrieve her.
She stillllll talks about that Raggedy Ann.

Jessica said...

What a great way to preserve memories. I love the Wassail line too. The layout balance of photo and journaling is great. Happy Thanksgiving.

Oh I love your pages, I love when people create great pages with vintage photos, so fun to mix the old with the new, and Basic Grey's Christmas collection this year is so great for that.
