Growing in Unity All week Long!

Hi everyone. I hope you all had a fantastic weekend and Mother's Day if you are a mom! My weekend was glorious - although I spent no time at my craft desk, I feel rejuvenated. Sometimes it's good to step away. I was thoroughly spoiled this Mother's Day, my hubby & kids presented me with a beautiful apron they decorated just for me plus a steam / vac mop and handmade cards, pictures & more.

                                                      
All my favorites, then to top it off my parents bought me a NookColor. I'm having fun playing around with it, though I'm still nto sure I'm ready for an ereader! LOL I kinda still like to flip thru pages, etc.



So, onto my project! My first GIU project features mixed media with canvas I created awhile ago but haven't worked up the nerve to share here yet! I love it and have it displayed in on my desk *it's not big, about the size of a card* and it reminds me to just be me. I used the sentiment from the She Set by Unity Stamps.


Now, if you don't know how this will work - each day I'll post a new project using Unity or Ippity stamps. Comment every day to increase your chances of winning as at the end of the week I'll choose one comment at random to win their choice of select Unity Stamps!!! Easy Peasy, right? Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to leave me a comment. I'm sorry to post and run but I'm running around like a mad woman trying to clean up for pictures tomorrow. Our house goes back on the market Wednesday.

Absolutely fabulous Mother's Day gifts! I love all the hands on your apron! And a color nook! How cool is that? I would love one, specially so I could download the Cards Magazine for much cheaper and know I won't accidentally delete it off that for more space on my flash drive! Your canvas is fabulous! I love all the colors and that sentiment! Great job.
