Today's new layout...

I'm excited to show you the latest scrapbook layout that I made last night. I used some of my new Unity Stamps & love the little added touch they add. I don't have that many {yet}, but I did use a few on this page.

OK ~ So the story behind this page is pretty funny. My son, Matt, is in Cub Scouts & my husband is the Assistant Cub Master. Each year the troop has a cake auction and all the proceeds benefit a local family in need. This year, Matt & Tim wanted to go all out on their cake. I gave them some pointers, but pretty much left things up to them. Tim found directions online for this cool Christmas Tree cake & thought they would have a great time making it. So that night, they made a cake and put it in the freezer so they could decorate it later that week.

So a few nights later the guys began cutting the shapes and decorating the cake. I was down in my studio creating and decided that I would just stay away ~ I was a bit afraid! About an hour later {and much restraint on my part}, I heard roaring laughter coming from my guys in the kitchen. I went upstairs to see the masterpiece ~

I immediately grabbed my camera to take a few shots!

They decided against trying the Christmas Tree cake again and opted to go with the Boy Scout Theme. I think you'll agree that this came out much better! And ~ Matt won for the best cake the night of the auction!

Supplies Used: Stamps ~ Unity Stamp Company (Flirty Flowers, Our Life ~ Our Story); Cardstock, Pattern Paper, Chipboard & Letter Stickers ~ KI Memories; Ink ~ SU.
