Everyday Sharing Love....

Today is Unity Stamp Company's FFF and they are having a huge "Halloween 31 Sale" this weekend only. Unity is releasing 5 new kits for Winter CHA for this weekend only for on $3.10. So please stop by and purchase you some new Unity rubber.

Lately, I have been considering a lot of different decisions in my life which will eventually affect my SAHM status with my babies. God has truly blessed me to spend so much time to watch my two babies every little growth milestone. During both pregnancies, I was laid off during that time and place on bed rest. I found a job with my daughter when she was 14 months old but that was a blessing from God. I had been looking all while I was pregnant. He came right on time. God's plans are always better than what we can image. Now, with my son, he turns 9 months tomorrow and I am at that torn state again. I have been looking for a long time but some doors in different avenues has been opening up. So I am letting go and putting everything in his hands.

On a happier note, this layout has a picture of my two babies. This is one of those cute "everyday photos" of them. When I say everyday...those moments after long hours of playing, your hair has come loose, and we are just home carefree, and mommy takes a picture. Those are my greatest moments with my babies. I love spending quality time with them....

Layout Ingredients:
Pattern Paper: Crate Paper
Cardstock: The Paper Company
Stamps: Unity Stamp Company "Worn Music"
Chipboard Letters: Basic Grey
Borders: Crate Paper
Bling: Prima

Mr & Mrs....

I have been intrigue by Ashley Newell's Embellish Magazine challenges. I am so excited that I had the opportunity to give it a try. The challenge requests using the colors, fushia, light pink, and grey. This is not a color scheme that I would normally put together and thought it would be a good challenge for me. Since I had my mojo working this week, I decided to complicate the challenge even more and use the Mojo Monday Sketch #110. So, this is my blog post for both challenges. If you have any free time today, please visit those two blogs.

Card Ingredients:
Cardstock: Bazzill
Pattern Paper: Making Memories
Stamps: Unity Stamp Company Sept 09 KOM
Embossing Powder (dress): Stampendous "Kaleidoscope"
Other: Bling, Nestibilities, Martha Stewart punch, Ribbon

Something a little Different....

Good Morning everyone! Well, for Unity Friends with Flair Friday, I am posting a card that I made the other day. Its not my typical card so I was worried about posting it today. I have one more request for the same theme of card. I think this time I will be adding more hand drawn items. Either way, my mom was happy with the card so it is already in the mail for someone else. So, let me know what you think. Have a great day!

Unity FFF #2

Yeah, its friday and I am still dealing with this cold. Please everyone take the time to visit Angela's blog for Unity Stamp Company and see all the wonderful customer creations for today. I wanted to make a special post just for Unity's FFF besides the projects I posted yesterday but I wasn't sure if my pounding headache would allow me to complete it. Thank God I was able to at least finish a small card for everyone. I am going back to bed now. Have a good weekend and thanks for looking!
