Growing In Unity Day 3

Growing in Unity Day 3! Wow this week is flying by! Thanks again for all your wonderful comments, it is such a boost to my ego! Today's first project is very special to me. For those of you that don't know my husband is a Marine and he does deploy quite a bit. Some longer than others. When he was gone in October (not far and not long), we were able to text each other. So one night I had asked him to write me a poem. It was short but very, very sweet. I then told him I needed one a week for every week he was away from me. So far Ihave three poems and will be expecting more when he deploys again. I had to treasure them by making this cute little book to write them into but they won't hold too many so I'll have to make more. Anyway here goes:

The cover is using Basic Grey's Urban Prarie paper, no stamping on the cover, just letters cut out on the Cricut. The tag on the side is grunge board, inked up.
This is the inside of the front cover. I stamped So & So Loves and the grass (not sure of name or what kit it came in). The next page I stamped the Details image and hand wrote info. This stamp is part of the Our Life, Our Stories kit.


Detail pic: The heart in the center is shiny, I used Diamond Glaze.

Page 4: I used the little Mushrooms and the brown tag from the Our Life, Our Stories kit. The stamped ribbon strip is part of the October KOTM.





This last project is for a certain special someone, I can't say who but you will love it! The mini book is the Meander book, instructions from SCS here. The paper again is from Basic Grey's Urban Prarie. The Butterflies are punched out but I stamped a swirl image from the Growing In Unity kit. They are stamped on textured paint chips that I got from the HD store (they look like sand paper) using Staz-On ink. Good Times image is from the Oct. KOTM and is embossed in white.





Once again I hope you enjoy today's projects. I promise I will have more tomorrow for HIP HOP! Please leave me some love if you want to be in the drawing for my Blog Candy tomorrow! Have a great day!
