Unity Blog Hop 07.10.14!

We’re hopping along on this HOT July day with some NEW Itty-Bitty stamp sets AND there’s a new Unity {be inspired} Challenge which includes an inspiration color photo, a card sketch, and a scrapbook layout sketch! 

Let’s start with a layout I made using this month’s scrapbook layout sketch as inspiration from the {be inspired} challenge.9 amazing years This picture of me and my husband, Rodney, was taken on our wedding day. Saturday will be our nine-year wedding anniversary. I was feeling very sentimental about the date and thought I’d reminisce about our kiss all over again. Rodney has been the best-est husband and friend to me. He’s kind-hearted, funny, forgiving, generous, talented, crazy, laid-back, and is never irritated or frustrated with the craziness I seem to thrive from--that’s saying a lot--trust me!  He takes good care of me. On any given day, he’s interested in my theories and opinions and makes me giggle—that’s important.  Best of all, I know my husband has my back and what we have is a loving partnership with an amazing family. That doesn’t mean I always agree with him AND I know he doesn’t agree with me either, but we respect each other. I’m proud of him. He’s my one and only.

Okay, enough of the mushiness! G-ROSS!

On the above layout, I used the new sentiment kit, Wish with Your Heart; this month’s SMAK Kit, All in the Numbers; the Hashtag kit that debuted last month, and one of the new Itty-Bitty sets you could get FREE just for SHOPPING through the weekend at Unity.10410090_10203319448260351_3729922152608137720_n JULY-2014-SMAK-ALL-IN-THE-NUMBERSUK-698A-HASHTAG-KIT10402046_10154353723505475_5594663838400067891_nI also was inspired to get busy making a card using the card sketch from this month’s {be inspired} challenge.wish you were hereOn the above card I used this month’s Layers of Life Kit, Becoming Who I Am; the new sentiment kit (preview above), and the flowers are from this month’s Kit of the Month, Beautiful – Inside and Out.BECOMING-WHO-I-AM1 JULY-2014-BEAUTIFUL-INSIDE-AND-OUT AND REMEMBER:

I was in the mood to just SCRAP a couple of recent photos that caught my attention. When the mood strikes, scrapping happens. I LOVE it when that happens.amazing possibility This is a layout using a picture of my daughter on her recent trip to Yosemite. She amazes me, what can I say? I love hanging out with her and learning how she experiences HER life. She’s SUPER cool.

Again, I used this month’s Kit of the Month (preview above), the Hashtag kit (preview above), and one of the NEW Itty-Bitty stamp sets you can get for FREE just for shopping Unity this weekend!Jake selfie This is the last one—I PROMISE! 

When your children become adults and fly from the coop, especially sons, you just don’t hear from them as much as you’d like to. Living their life just gets in the way. Harshly put, but it’s the truth. This is my son, Jake, who I rarely get pictures of anymore—he’s just SUPER busy living his life and I’m so proud he’s doing just that.  A couple of weeks ago, he posted this selfie on Instagram/Facebook and I couldn’t have been happier!  He’s wearing his new suit at work and he’s SO handsome!

On this layout, I used the new Layers of Life kit (preview above), the new sentiment kit (preview above), and the Gina & Me stamp set that debuted last month.135476_10154156707655475_7697954632968425487_o Thank you all so much for spending your time perusing my creations and leaving me such positive comments during the hops.

Crystal said...

Beautiful card and great layouts! I love your perspective on motherhood. Respecting your childrens identities and letting them be their own people. Mine are still so small and depend on me for everything that it's hard to imagine the day will soon come that I won't see them everyday or talk I them everyday. Thanks for sharing your wonderful layouts and family!

Camille Robinson said...

Thanks, Crystal--it goes by faster than you can ever imagine. As much as they depend on you now, that's how much they won't depend on you later. I miss being needed BUT that's replaced with how much I'm proud of them being on their own. Sniff, sniff.
