The Unity May Challenge

It is that time again and another Unity challenge. This month is "Tooty Fruity" and although I only have 2,count them 2.A pear and a cherry fruit related stamps.This was the first challenge.The second challenge,I have never done anything with fruit before? The only thing I could decide on was the colour scheme,I did`nt even have a photograph. I searched through my files and came across this photo of my son,Liam and his girlfriend,Alyssa. The day was beautiful and so were they.
I think it turned out nicely,they were my favourite summer photo`s last year.

My first love is scrap-booking,which began in the year 2000.I have always gone back to it and find a lot of my personal "sanctuary" when I am scrapping.Unable to sleep last night (did`nt go to bed till 3 a.m. I decided to make a card from the same stamp.( I do love Unity stamps for there clarity)
One of my favourite colours is orange.All stamps are Unity.Paper is Basic Grey and Bazzill(scraps)
Here are a few more layouts I have completed over the past week. The story behind these ones is I found 2 shoe boxes full of old photos of the boys. I was so excited to find them and forgotten some of the moments I had captured. My task this month and probably the summer is to get the all scrapped. It was so much fun finding them though.
I love this layout for another"friendly"challenge.
It may of taken a few extra hours to do the flowers( I did 3) but it was worth it.Gavin was about 6 and in gymnastics and always hammed it up for a camera.
I could`nt think of a title for this collection of photo`s, so I used the border of stamps as the title.
one more layout
finally, a Christmas layout from many moons ago,probably close to 10 years.I look back at their silly faces and remember how much fun they were.Good times.
It is wonderful finding long lost photo`s but difficult to scrapbook,specifics are gone.I am going to see what I can find out there in "google-land" to help with some but I think mainly rely on other`s memories because it is far better than mine. At the end of it all though I remember the love.Happy scrapping.
