Welcome to this week's 
**You should be arriving here from Renee Aslette's Blog**

We've got prizes again this week,
 so don't forget to 
comment as you hop!
Three lucky peeps will receive a
 $20 Unity Gift Certificate

I haven't had a chance to craft with one of 
Authentique's newest collections, Original,
 so I thought this hop the perfect venue to do so...
especially paired up with the gorgeous "Share Your Smile"
Itty Bitty Authentique/Unity co-branded stamp!

I stamped the wire dress form image in a vibrant blue
Kaleidacolor by Imagine Craft and colored in lightly with a blue watercolor.
All of the patterned papers and stickers are from the Original Collection.

I've had the pleasure of hosting this month's Unity Challenge: Pumpkins.
Here are two samples that I made for it!

 Both were created using a shape and background stamp from the
Unity August Kit-of-the-Month
I invite you to come on over and play along with us!
**Deadline is November 14th**

Let's hop on to Shilo Miles' Blog and see what she's stamped up for us today :)
