It's a Flair Filled Friday!!

Happy Friday and welcome to my blog!!

Today is the day that Unity peeps all over the world sign up to share their creations made using Unity stamps with each other!  It's Friends with Flair Friday!  It is a Unity Fan blog hop of sorts.  To sign up to participate in the blog look for the sign up thread on the Unity Forum at SCS that is posted on Wednesdays by Jimmi at 10am.  

Be sure to look for the FWF blinkie that is visible on one of the blogs!  
The lucky commenter from that blog will win 25 random Unity stamps!!  Good luck!

The opening of the new Dirty Gallery yesterday marked the end of my term as one of the Dirty Dozen!  I will forever be one of the alumni and for that I am grateful, but it was a very bittersweet day for me. I enjoyed the time I got to spend on the Dirt Pile but think it went by way too fast.  However, it is always exciting to welcome in new Dirty Girls and I am so thankful that Lisa was one of the Dirty Girls replacing me. :-)

Today I have a project to share with you that I made for one of my Dirty Dozen assignments.  It was from the October Gallery called Treats All Around.  The focus on the Gallery was treats and all things round.  

I decided to create a round mini album that contained drinks recipes for each month of the year!  The majority of the stamps that I used on this project are from Unity so I thought it was a good project to share with you here.  If you are a Fan Club Member at SCS you may have seen this in the DD Gallery before.  Sorry if this is a repeat for you!
