Becoming Who You Are

I had some fun scrappy time today.  It was too hot to do anything else so I hid in the basement and scrapped.

I used my Plus One collection by American Crafts along with some Unity Stamps - the SMAK kits (Camera Ready, Epic Moments and Day Dreaming) a LOL - Becoming Who I Am  and the Imperfection is Beauty set (which I stamped on all of the black and white sets) and finally a mini placemat by Jillibean Soup.    I am playing along with the Friends With Flair by Unity.


I fussy cut the flowers from some of the pattern paper and tucked them by the photos.



I am playing along with the Moxie Fab World Clicking Cameras Challenge and I used this fabulous sketch from Page Drafts:
