Hey crafty friends!
Today I'm sharing a layout I did for a Build A Page tutorial by Creative Team Member Maggi at Flying Unicorn.
Maggi has such a way with her layouts and she really is one of my favorite scrappers! She can rock a Vintage layout like no other!! I also did this lo for her "Something Old, Something New" Challenge in the forum. We have LOTS of fun challenges this month with some very awesome RAK's to give away so I hope you find time to join us!
So with her directions she shared, I made this layout using Meg's Garden papers from the Flying Unicorn Store. I love how Flying Unicorn specializes in hard to find papers that you can't seem to get anywhere else. Meg's Garden is truly beautiful and the designs on their papers are so dreamy.
Here are a few close ups
I hope you fly on over to the FORUM and join us in some fun challenges!! And don't forget about our Blog Hop on July 2nd!! We're giving away a Vagabond!!!! How cool is that??
Till next time...Happy Scrappin!!

Hey scrapping friends!!
Denise here to share a few projects I did using the new June kit, "Ocean Breeze and Summer Skies" from Flying Unicorn!
This kit was jam packed once again with the most beautiful papers, flowers and embellies. I really loved the pearl watercolors that were included too! Alda has that special touch coordinating the kits..they really are amazing!
Here is my first LO I will share with you. It's a pic of my grandson (of course) and I used the Kaisercraft papers and other goodies from the kit.
I dabbed some Gesso on the flower and painted on the wooden flower with it as well.
Flying Unicorn!! I hope you get inspired to create something today!!

OH MY GOSH - Do we have a great surprise for all of you this month ... wanna know? We have brought Gabrielle over the border for the month of June as our Guest Designer! Yes we did !! Now, we all know anything she touches turns to a magic and what she has done with the Kit this month will blow your socks off .. but you will have to wait till the 3rd of June to see ..
I am still in awe that we have captured her ... and without further delay may I present the one and only Gabrielle Pollacco ... ( PS do not forget to congratulate her on her first scrapbook cover - what an accomplishment!
My name is Gabrielle Pollacco, I live in Cambridge, Ontario (Canada). I
started scrapbooking about 7 years ago and fell in love with this art form from
the very first page I made. I love that this art form is ever changing and find
myself constantly inspired by all the wonderful new products that come out each
year. My favourite thing to scrap about is my family, my dear husband and my two
girls, as well as my extended family.
I've had the honour to be on a number of wonderful design teams over the
years, some of my past design teams being Daisy D's and Zva Creative and am
presently on the Bo Bunny, Webster's Pages, Dusty Attic, The Color Room and
Scrap 365 Magazine (UK Magazine). I've had my work published in Memory Makers
Magazine, Creating Keepsakes Magazine and Scrapbooking & Beyond Magazine as
well as a number of online magazines. I worked for a Tradeshow Design company as
a project manager before I had my babies and now that I'm a stay at home mom I'm
fortunate enough to have a little time to enjoy this amazing hobby.
I'm delighted to have been asked to be a Guest Designer for Flying Unicorn
and join in with the talented group of designers here for this month!
Just a few of her amazing creations :
