Unicorns and Fairies Page 2

 Here is the 2nd page of my Unicorns and Fairies. The paper is another one from DCWV's  'Once Upon a Time' stack. I backed each photo with coordinating paper from the same stack. The  photos of my GBs actually came from a Christmas card their family sent out this year. I had two cards so I was able to use the pictures from both sides.

Unicorns and Fairies

Today is just for fun. My GBs got to meet a unicorn so of course I had to document it!
I used a DCWV 'Once Upon A Time' Stack that I've had in my stash forever just waiting for the right moments. You have to agree, this is the perfect paper for this theme!

See the glossy accents on the paper?
I love this paper. It truly is magical.
I framed the photo for more emphasis and to tie in the colors for a corresponding page that I haven't finished yet.   
I've entered this in several challenges. You need to check them out and see all the wonderful talent out there!

It Finally Feels Like Fall

I used Close To My Heart's 'Falling For You' Scrapbook Workshop Your Way Kit to make this double layout. This Kit is fabulous. It is very versatile, which gives you more BANG for your buck and has a masculine flair to it. If you are scrapbooking for boys it's a must-have.
To order your Falling For You Kit go HERE.  The Title Living Off the Land is from the OutdoorMan Cricut Cartridge.

I'm entering this in some fun challenges. If you'd like to get some inspiration, check them out:

In Memory of My Dad


In Memory of Stanley Edward Franklin
   Dad was a Baptist preacher. He lived what he preached. He was loving and caring and had the faith of a child. He was an intelligent man. He had a doctorate in Theology. His life revolved around his faith in the Lord, his church, and his family.  Every morning when you woke up you could find Dad with a cup of coffee, a sweet treat, and his Bible, studying.  He encouraged people to be their best. He influenced people all over the world with his love of  the Lord. He pastored in Kenova, WV; Dallas, TX; Madison, WI;  and Richmond, CA.
He left behind his wife, 4 children, 7 grandchildren, and 3 great-grandchildren.  We are all saddened by his death, but we know that we will someday be together again.
