Well, I didn't get to join in Unity's Hip Hop as much as I would have liked yesterday but there is always next week, right?! I did, however, manage to complete one of the challenges which was to use a bow on your card. I used Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge sketch #63 to get me started and my Unity Something Within set to come up with this card:
I really like the blue/brown combination and I just think the frame in this set is absolutely gorgeous. The ribbon and tiny twinkles are from Taylored Expressions. The paper is misc. from my stash...trying to be good about using up what I have. :)
Last night I worked on a layout using Jennifer Buck's CAS Scrapbook Challenge sketch #4. I was so inspired by all the Mom cards and projects from the Unity blog hop yesterday that I created a Mom layout of my own.
I am pretty happy with how it turned out...I just don't like how I did the title. Oh well! What's most important is the pictures and memories, right?! I used Unity's Just My Type set (which happens to be on sale this weekend) to spell 'Lucky' and the journal lines are from Unity's Amazing Me set (the old one). I really like the patterned paper...so cute and a different color combination than what I usually go for. I took a few of the squares and popped them up on dimensionals for added interest. I thought these two pictures of me with my boys perfectly captured my love for them and the joy that being a mother brings me. They are both such blessings and I thank God every day for them!
Hope you have a blessed weekend! Make sure to visit Angela's blog to see all the specials and the list of wonderful ladies posting more Unity projects today. I'll be back tomorrow with my EtsyInspired Challenge card...hope you will stop back by and join in the fun!
