Unity {Inspiration}

Happy Thursday...it's time for some 
UNITY INSPIRATION
along with fabulously fun flowers by PETALOO
**You should be arriving here from Renee Aslette's Blog**
Remember to comment as you go!  
Three lucky commentors will each receive a $20 Unity Gift Certificate
This month's focus at Petaloo is their Color Me Crazy Flowers.  
These come to you in white and can easily be transformed with whatever color you
like by spritzing, stamping, inking, coloring, etc...or just leave them in their natural state :)
For today's card I wanted to use some papers from Dear Lizzy, so I went with 
Georgia Peach ColorShine spritz by Heidi Swapp.  

I stamped the sentiment from the May Kit-of-the-Month onto a frame found on one 
of the patterned papers...it worked out just great!  I embossed the mint green paper 
behind it with one of my new folders by Brenda Walton.
The "celebrate today" sentiment is also a part of the May KOTM.


This particular Shabby Cut Canvas Flower came in two layers.  
I wanted a certain 'fit' so I removed the back layer and then layered the flower
onto a green mulberry paper flower (also from Petaloo) to act as the leaves.

I think it turned out to be a very nice and elegant card for the new couple :)

Enjoy hoppin', my Unity friends!

♥A little about me♥  I'm currently designing for Doodlebug Design and Scrapbook Adhesives and have had the honor of serving on 20+ manufacturers or retailer  design teams over the years!  When I'm not working as a school administrative assistant, you can almost  always find me crafting cuteness for my Etsy Shop: Dot & Whimsy :) Aside from paper-crafting, I also enjoy making jewelry, cross-stitch, embroidery,  home decorating, reading and watching reality TV.

A SN@P December Daily

**For the UNITY BLOG HOP, click --HERE--**

Oh, December Daily, how do I love thee! Isn't this just the greatest idea, ever?  (scrapbooking wise, anyway) Welcome to my contribution to the  SIMPLE STORIES  DECEMBER DAILY BLOG HOP I'm so glad that you're joining us...I can't wait to hop around myself and see how the girls have decorated their SN@P Albums December Daily style :)
**You should be arriving here from Rebecca Keppel's Blog**
I have quite a few photos to share, so I'll leave most of them in a  smaller size.  Just click on each one to enlarge.
My vision for the album was to mix 'n match  Handmade Holiday, SN@P and Year.O.Graphy I wanted bright colors mixed in with more shabby-distressed look that Simple Stories is known for.    For the cover, I took a bright Turquoise Dot SN@P paper and a strip from Year.O.Graphy and stitched them together.  The title is a compilation of  sevearl SN@P sticker elements.
