Unity Friends With Flair Blog Hop!

I am SO excited to be part of Unity's Friends With Flair aka FWF Blog hop today!!! I pretty much stalk *ahem* hang out at the Unity Forums on SCS all week - I first got introduced to {ippity} from my dear friend Dee & the love affair thus began with Unity shortly after! If you've not hung out on Thurs in the Unity Forums at SCS - you MUST stop in there if you get a chance. We have so much fun **tons of prizes** and after a few weeks, I'm starting to remember names & faces & lives. It's great - I love it!
So on to my project...yep, a PROJECT not a card! Can you believe it? I don't do a ton of altering but when I came across this little notepad (man, I so should have taken a pic before hand) that I bought awhile ago on sale I knew exactly what I wanted to do! So, I covered it with some kraft CS, then layered some GORGEOUS October Afternoon paper on it. I stamped out the bird from {ippity} set Music of the Heart in white ink on kraft cs and cut it out. Then I attached it to the reverse side of the October Afternoon paper I layered on the cs. From the same set, I stamped the sentiment inside the frame which is from the {ippity} set Season of Joy. Added some lace & pins & flowers and presto - a gorgeous altered notebook! At least I think it's gorgeous! I hope you do too!!! I was inspired by last weeks HHSC15. These sketches are given each week & now there are PRIZES up for grabs for the winner! You've gotta check it out & the only requirement is using Unity or {ippity} stamps on your card - I can help out with that! Keep reading..


And to get ready for the NEW {ippity} Summer 2010 release coming oh so soon - I am having a GREAT sale on my {ippity} Sales Blog. I hope you will stop by there & check it out. The stamps featured today are available for purchase from me. I'd LOVE to be YOUR {ippity} Chick!


Now, be sure to stop by the Unity Blog for a list of Everyone participating in FWF today - there is so much inspiration to be found & oh, there is also a blog candy hidden along the way! You gotta look for it! :)


Happy Friday!
