Friends with Flair - Growing in Unity Day 5

Well we've come to the end of my Growing in Unity week of posts.  Thanks so much for allowing me to brag on & show off my favorite stamps by far of any I've worked with.

Thanks for all your comments & encouragement - you're all awesome!

If you haven't already entered - leave a comment for the blog anniversary giveaways here deadline midnight Sat the 19th. Thanks for the great response & helping me celebrate! If I get 100 followers I have another prize package valued at over $50 to giveaway so that will be 7 winners instead of 6 so spread the word... each time you do you can leave another comment....

This is the last Friends with Flair hop of 2009 where the customers show off their creativity!  Check the Unity Blog for full list & visit them all for a chance to win 25 unmounted stamps from one of the blogs.

I was telling you yesterday how much I love the journaling spots from Unity.  Not only are they huge making them super useful but that have so much style making them a great addition to any page.

Here's a page I made for the upcoming Everything Scrapp'n December 28th Challenge using a journaling spot from the the now retired October Scrapbook KOTM.  Don't let the December Scrapbook KOTM get away without buying it - see it here.



I love the jagged edges & plenty of room given for a lot of journaling....


Supplies:  Cardstock (Bazzill); Paper (Graphic 45 - Domestic Goddess); Rub On Letters (American Crafts & Heidi Swapp); Sticker Letters (Making Memories); Bling (Prima - Say it in Pearls Strip); Ribbon (Maya Road-Black Gingham & Maya Road - Beige Gingham); Ticket (Tim Holtz); Tag (K&Co & 7Gypsies); Pin (Vintage stash); Chipboard & Image Rub On (Maya Road); Spray Paint - to age the ribbon (Tattered Angels - Glimmer Mist)

If you'd like to join in this challenge for a chance to win a gift certificate to Everything Scrapp'n online scrapbook store mark your calendars & come back here on December 28th for more details but here's the basics of the challenge... Be prepared for some self-reflection, because this page will be all about you! You're a part of the family too and should be in those scrapbooks as well! Participate in the challenge for a chance to win a $15 gift certificate to Everything Scrappn'.   Or better yet head on over to the ES store blog & sign up to receive the feed updates.

I'm stalking the mailman for my Dec KOTM - it's a standout!  If you aren't a KOTM member Angela has made it impossible not to sign up... see the Thurs blog post $75 worth of stamps for $24 - plus a coupn for 40% off next order!

I'll close with a quote since that's the "Unity" thing to do....
"Sometimes our hearts get tangled
And our souls a little off-kilter
Friends and family can set us right
And help guide us back to the light.
~Sera Christann

Have a wonderful weekend & if you entered the contest.... good luck!  Winners will be posted on Monday
