Unity Blog HOP 01.28.16!!

HAPPY Thursday, everyone!!
Today’s hop starts the “Something for Everyone Sale” at Unity, so be sure to stop by Unity and fill your cybercarts with some Unity rubber that you know you’re going to LOVE always!

Today, I’m going to share an 8-1/2-x-11-inch scrapbook layout using this month’s SMAK.


My daughter, Brandi, is currently in New Zealand spending time with friends, enjoying herself, and letting her free spirit fly. You’ve got to do that every once in a while when you’re a young woman while you can. This is her second trip to the country of New Zealand and she’s visited Australia in the past as well. I think she likes it downunder. It hasn’t been my time yet to go, BUT I always look forward to her pictures no matter where she goes. Scrapping her photos kind of makes me feel like I’m right there with her on the trip.

I pulled out this month’s SMAK and got started right away—she’s not even home yet!


NOW it's time to SHOW & TELL!

PLEASE share your lovely creations on Facebook with the Unity {show & tell) Facebook group. Lots of us check-in there daily (I check in several times daily--I’m addicted to inspiration).

THIS lovely creation is what I saw there this morning while enjoying my morning coffee. It was posted by Lin Metcalf. I was floored! It’s amazing and I cannot stop looking at it—now I want to make a pocket letter with all my favorite Unity stamps. THANKS so much for the inspiration, Lin. 

GO check out Lin’s original post on the Unity {show & tell) Facebook group and leave her some LOVE: https://www.facebook.com/groups/434773279941105/permalink/977451799006581/

Unity Blog Hop 01.14.16!!

HUGE. RELEASE. That’s all I got to say about that!

&

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, ANGELA MAGNUSON, YOU BEAUTIFUL SOUL!!

We’re all celebrating Angela’s birthday by hopping along with Unity today and showing off the NEW Unity releases.

Here’s what I did with the NEW art journaling sayings as my scrapbook page title.


My daughter participated in her first half marathon this past October in Portland, OR. I think her excitement for the sport rubbed off on me a little bit, so I started running the second week of this past November, so I could run with her in the Hot Chocolate 15K at Golden Gate Park in San Francisco, CA, on January 10. You never know what you can do until you just BELIEVE AND MOVE FORWARD. I’ve never been much of a running enthusiast. In fact, I loathed running. Walking has been more of my exercise of choice. Something just clicked this time and I just kept doing it and WANTING to do it. I’m not saying I love to do it——I‘ve found I can tolerate it easier than I used to--and well, I just don’t stop. I keep going. Much to my surprise, we finished the 15K in 1 Hour and 56 minutes. My goal was to run the entire 9 miles which was almost accomplished except the last couple of miles were at an incline--it was San Francisco after all--and well I had to walk a little bit of that, BUT we both ran across the finish line together. Never think it’s too late for you to try anything new. I’m 44 (soon to be 45) and I just finished a 15K with my 25-year-old daughter in less than 2 hours!! YES!!

For the above layout, I also used a sentiment toward the top from the NEW Kit of the Month, “Start Again”.


And the arrows are from the NEW SMAK Kit, “Free Spirit”.

Unity BLOG HOP 12.31.15!!

HAPPY New Year everyone! I’m so happy you’re hopping along with us at Unity on the last day of 2015. There were a lot of ups and downs over the past year, but all in all, it was a good one and I'd do it all over again.

Here’s a peek at a card I put together using the NEW sentiment kit, “Worth it All”.



I really LOVE this sentiment and pretty much live my life this way. Sometimes you just gotta let go and TRUST. Here’s to new beginnings I always say! Let's welcome 2016!

Here’s a peek at the entire NEW sentiment kit by Lisa Arana.


In case you missed it, here’s a tag I put together recently for a post on Unity’s blog.


I used December’s, “Crazy, Tragic, Magic Life”, on this chipboard tag.


NOW . . . onto the REALLY good stuff!!
