Christmas Roses Layout....

I have a layout to share with you today and it's a very special layout to me.

This is the layout about the Roses that Ben sent to us for Christmas. He sent these to us about 4 days before Christmas and told me they were to brighten our Christmas table and so that we would have a bit of him there for our Christmas dinner since he is deployed this year. This was our first Christmas apart and all of us loved the flowers. They were VERY special and so perfectly thoughtful of him.

The layout is based upon a sketch that was posted over on the Studio Calico blog for the weekend. I pulled out my brand-new, not-yet-inky Unity Scrapbooking kit for Jan (Unforgettable Moments.)
I love the effect of banners on layouts and cards, but wasn't too sure about these when I saw the shape of them. That was, until I stamped them and started placing them together. Lindsay is the artist for these little banner shapes and that girl is brilliant!!! Look at how beautiful they look when placed side-by-side. The shape of them are PERFECT!!! I am totally in love with these banner stamps!!!

Supplies used:
*Unity Stamp Co. Unforgettable Moments (banner, Unforgettable Moments journaling block, SoulMates embellishment, and Good Times bitty strip)
*Unity Stamp Co. Best Wishes & Blooms (roses)
*Websters Pages Christmas line
*Martha Stewart border punch
*Marvy Uchida Oval punch
*CTMH Cocoa inkpad
*watercolor pencils
*Making Memories glitter stickers
*cotton string
