Welcome to the Unity Stamp Company and Authentique blog hop!!
Today members from both teams are featuring the AMAZING line of {Authentique papers} and co-branded {Unity Stamps}!  I HAD to make a scrapbook layout using these YUMMY papers.  I've been wanting to start a personal scrapbook since I turned 30...I'm only a year plus late but THIS paper was PERFECT for my first layout.
 I used the Unity set
{You + Me = Bliss}
 Check out this wonderful sentiment...I cut it off the bottom of the Authentique paper.  I LOVE that they include them on their lines...it was too beautiful to throw away :)



I mixed and matched a few of their paper lines...including:
{Prosperity} from the Blissful line
{Yearning} from the Wonder line...this is their x-mas line but PERFECT for everyday pages too!
{Brillance} from the Splendid line

Here is the blog hop list for you to continue along...LOTS of talent along the way :)
