Growing In Unity... 100% Happy

Welcome back to my blog for my final day of 

Growing in Unity 

and this week's 

Friends With Flair post!

I have been so happy to play with my Unity stamps more than usual this week and I strongly encourage you to sign up in the Unity Friends Forum at SCS for a turn at Growing in Unity!!  It is a lot of fun!  I can't thank you all enough for all the love you have shared with me this week!!  You guys are awesome!!

To start at the beginning of the FWF Blog Hop be sure to start at the beginning ... you will find the complete list of blogs to hop on the Unity blog.  And don't forget to look for the FWF blinkie for a chance to win some free stamps!  

I decided to make another scrapbook layout for my final post this week!

I had some pictures of my daughter and my great niece that were taken recently and were just begging to be scrapped.  Since there were strawberries on my great nieces bathing suit, I knew immediately what papers and stamps to use!!


Supplies Used:
Stamps: Unity: 100% Happiness Stampin' Store Kit August 2009, Distressed Dots
DP: My Mind's Eye: Quite Contrary
Stickers: October Afternoon
Border Punch: Martha Stewart
Ink: Memento Black, Copic Markers
Brads: Basic Grey



I colored the strawberries and frame stamp with Copic markers and then stamped the 100% Happy stamp with Ruby Red ink from SU. To border the picture of my niece, I stamped the Distressed Dots Unity stamp underneath the picture on the left upper corner.


The journaling says...
Tiffany and her second cousin Ava Marie spend some time together bonding at a family gathering.  They are so "berry" cute together!


Looking at that sweet baby face makes me 100% Happy... that's for sure!!


Now, to make you 100% Happy, how about some BLOG CANDY??

Tomorrow I will draw one lucky winner to receive the BLOG CANDY below.  To qualify to win, leave a comment on all of my blog posts for my week of Growing in Unity and you can have up to five chances to win the BLOG CANDY!!  



Good Luck!!

Thank you so much for all your loving support and encouragement  this week. It means so much to me to have so many crafting people that I can truly call my freinds!!  Have a wonderful weekend and may your bucket overflow with tons of Unity inspiration for the coming week!!
