You are like NO other lil' Bug!...

...and may I say so, myself, that she's one of the CUTEST little bugs around?

I was SO inspired to scrapbook yesterday-I am BEYOND excited.   Let's just say I have something coming up here in the near future that will be requiring me to scrap a little more and I was feeling VERY inspired!

I am about 3 years behind but I figured I'd start a LITTLE current so I'm here in the Summer of 2008 and here is my precious baby girl staring at one of those big green leaf buggers at our old house in IL.   Could this quote be ANY more perfect?

"It is the SWEET, SIMPLE things of life which are the REAL ONES after all..."  ~Laura Ingalls Wilder

Seriously could NOT be more perfect for this picture!  I don't even like bugs; I'm actually terrified of them but always try to put on a brave face for the kiddos, but you better believe I stuck that lens right up in that moment because it NEEDED to be captured!

Fast forward from Summer 2008 to the present...and I bring you the MARCH 2010 Kit of the Month from Unity Stamp Co.!   Here you will find all the cute stamps I used for this layout and more:

Isn't it sweet as can be?   If you're not a kit club member, be sure to stop by THIS page for all the info-there are so many neat new perks and LOTS of rubber you're missing out on!

Speaking of missing out, you definitely don't want to miss out on the talented bunch that I am HONORED to work with and call my friends:


Be sure to stop by the UNITY BLOG too-find out what the DEAL OF THE DAY is, and all the fun stuff Ang has to tell you about over there-there is ALWAYS something going on at Unity and I LOVE being a part of it all!

Take care and I'll be back with some more fun tomorrow :)

Live, love, laugh and smile,
Jess :)  xoxo

Oh Jess, that picture is AMAZING!! I don't like bugs either, but my kids are aways catching or playing with something and they always want to put it in a jar and keep it in the house. I have to stop them right there!! Them being outside is one thing but in my house.... I don't think so!! You have inspired me to want to print out some pics and get some of my pages done!!
And did I forget to mention how adorable and beautiful your daughter is!!! Love her ringlets in her hair!!
