~ Growing In Unity: Day 5 & Friends with Flair ~



It's a Unity day today. Last day of my Growing in Unity week, one which I had a blast, playing with Unity stamps. It's also Friends with Flair day today as well. And it's gonna be another maniac day for me too, with dental appointment and violin rehearsal thrown in! I guess that's what being a mom is.... your kids' schedules takes over your life!

Thankfully, found some time last nite to scrap and with a new stamp kit, Brave Girl. A box chocked full of new stamps was delivered yesterday, much to my delight! Here's my first LO: 

Made use of Scarlet Lime April's kit for this LO. The base is Basic Grey Basic White paper (boy do I hug the Basic ranges). LO based on a sketch at Butterfly Craft. I used quite a fair bit of stamp images from Brave Girl... gonna be one of my fav scrapbooking sets!


LO created using a Studio Calico May kit (which incidentally arrived this week). This is based on a sketch by Sketchy Thursdays (I rely on sketches a lot these days as I've got limited time for crafting and dun wanna be fluffing about). Although the kit is entitled Brave Girl, I found them equally versatile for use on male LOs too. 

The photos used on the LO were taken on my iPhone using a Hipstamatic app. Now if you have an iPhone, you need this app! It makes your photos look rather 'vintagy'. What I love about it is the ability to change lens, films and flashes to create a certain look in the photo. Or simply shake the phone to get a random look. It makes taking photo so much fun! 

Thanks for dropping by. And if fancy winning a Unity single stamp set of your choice, drop me a comment. The winner will be drawn this weekend! It's gonna be a fun weekend as my boys will be basking (playing their violins) in Birmingham town centre on Saturday for charity. They are helping out Christian Aid and I'm praying for sunshine! Whatever you are doing, hope you have a good weekend! TTFN!

Hipstamatic makes me laugh, we have all this fantastic technology that gives us amazing crisp shots and we all get so excited about an app that makes our photos look 1970's - Still love it though!

Cool Lo's - I spy Scarlet Lime there!
