FWF {july 16}

Hello, friends:}


FIRST of all---I'm sooooooooo excited to share the following news with you::: I was published in the MAY/JUNE issue of FOR THE HOME!! ACK--I about died last December when I got the email! I sent in my candle covers! HOOOOORAY! I was on pages 28-29. The photographer did a FAB job making my covers look so awesome!! I've been waiting a long long time to share that with you!!
***NOTE:: I just received my publication pic from Heather! She is the BEST!! This is what I would have put up for my pic of the candle covers had I posted it....I might be using this publication pic soon!! LOOOOOOVE it!! 


SECOND of all--it's FWF!! HOOORAY! I love love love UNITY! So much goodness with this company--the stamps, the peeps, EVERYTHING! I have about five sketched cards to share with you...but I have to make them first! EH--time ran out from me this week! I promise to share them as soon as I finish them:} I did finish one card for today--I made it for the E.A.D. color challenge. I was also inspired by Heather's new blog banner. {If you haven't had a blog makeover yet--go to Heather! She is AMAZING!!}. Her banner and the E.A.D. color story fit perfectly!! I love making scraps into argyle. That is what I did with the top half of this card. 
Then I stamped the skull and sentiment [Unity's Treasure To Me stamp set]. Tied a ribbon--and I was done! LOVE it! I really like how it still has that rocker/pirate look with the feminine touch!! 


I did make this scrapbook page [I'm on a roll--I think I have over 10 pages now!!].....but I featured it two days ago for the Who's That Girl {Risky Business #5} and All Things Unity {no card} challenges. I am in the process of making another one! I love this new page--it is about our LA trip, and I'm using Unity's Confessions stamp set! Can't wait to share it!!


I also made another card using Unity's new scrapbooking store kit {Key to Joy}. I cannot feature it yet since I'm trying to get it published! Here is a sneak peek... wish me luck!


That is it for me today. Be sure to stop by the Unity blog for a complete list of FWF gals! Lots of creations to inspire you!! 


Be sure to stop back by tomorrow for another EtsyInspired challenge! I will be using Unity stamps on that project:} LOVE Unity! Be blessed!
