Growing in Unity Blog Hop



Welcome to another Growing in Unity Blog Hop! Please be sure to stop by Unity Stamp Company to see Angela's 60% off Birthday Sale and to see all the stamps that Unity has to offer.

I used the above sketch from Scrap Much and am submitting the following layout in their Sketchy Friday Challenge.





I used Creative Memories Rock Grunge 12 x 12 Additions kit to complete this layout. The arrow striped PP behind the photo is from Craft Smith Watercolor 12 x 12 in Watercolor Paper Pad as is the title- Sunshine in the sky and the rainbow diagonal striped strip behind it. The orange and gray spots are also from the Creative Memories set as is the strip behind the best guy ever stamp. The green paper behind the I love that you're funny stamp is from Colorbok 12 x 12 Deluxe Textured Primary Cardstock Pad. I chose "A smile is the beginning of peace."- Mother Teresa stamp because we're both smiling. This picture is of me and my little brother, Tyler, taken with my cell phone as we're riding in the back seat with our parents to the Farmer's Market in Raleigh, NC, this past Halloween. I chose the sunshine title since the sun is glowing behind us. I used VersaFine Onyx Black Pigment ink on all 3 Unity stamps. The best guy ever and I love that you're funny stamps are from Totally and Utterly Amazing May 2013 Kit Of The Month and the Mother Teresa quote stamp is from a Unity grab bag I won. I stamped the Mother Teresa quote on a piece of scrap paper from the Craft Smith Watercolor pad. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of the hop!

Up next is Corrie and I'm sure she has something awesome to share!
