FwFF and Final day for GIU Comments!

Note: I totally forgot to sign up for Friends with Flair Friday, and it may have been too late. So if I didn't end up on the list, please don't forget to visit the Unity blog for the list or FwFF participants...some awesome stuff I tell ya!

Hi everyone! This was the first time that I hosted Growing in Unity, and boy, it seems like it flew by...so fast! I was nervous, but yet I had a lot of fun! Everything I created this past week has actually been made for someone, and you know...it felt good to do that...not just for a challenge, but to know that I intended to give it to someone!

Thank you so much for letting me share with you this week! And do you remember the old saying...'who would do that?....YES, UNITY WOULD DO THAT! Okay, maybe it's not that old of a sayin', but Thank you Unity for giving me the opportunity!

Okay lovely ladies...this is the final day for comments on my blog to win your choice of one of these awesome Unity sets: Margarita Moments....or Which Direction....or Berry Good Life...or Grow Yourself Extraordinary! I will post the WINNER tomorrow (Saturday) with my final creation (progressive scrapbook page) for this round of GIU!

Here is a bookmark that I made out of twill ribbon...I stamped with Memento Ink and colored with my Copics 'cause I wanted it flat and not to make any marks in my books (I don't like making any marks in my books...yea, I'm like that!):
From Unity and {ippity} Projects

Here's a card that I created for two challenges...Hip Hop Sketch Challenge HHSC15, and Unity Addicts Recipe Challenge UAC8--to use 2 buttons, two flowers and one bow:



From Unity and {ippity} Projects
The inside sentiment:
From Unity and {ippity} Projects
Stamps: Unity Rain & Flowers Set

And you're in for a treat next week for Growing in Unity...Tracy is going to be sharing her creativity at Tracy's Stamping Blog...so don't forget (but I'll remind you again tomorrow)!

And a big shout out to Maria over at Ria Creations...thank you for taking on the GIU scheduling and posting and stuff...you are awesome and appreciated very much!

So don't forget to come back tomorrow to see who won their choice of the Unity sets and my extra Unity set on my post yesterday!

P.S. I need to share...I've been entering some challenges recently, and oh my I'm so excited...my latest win was for Play Date Cafe...see my right side bar...yay, I'm just so excited! *smile*

What a fabulous idea for that twill. I have TONS of this and it's always too big for a card. I'm going to make one for my niece and nephew right now! Thanks!
