Fun Crowd WITH Some Blog Candy! :)

Happy Thursday!! :) Time for some UNITY. :)
And you WILL want to take advantage of this........

I inked up the July Kit of the Month- Happily Ever After

This first one uses some Pink Paislee patterned paper.


Simple, right? :)


I used Studio Calico patterned paper on this one. The background was made with the keys from the Keys to Joy Store kit.
So go ahead and leave a comment here telling me about your weekend plans & you could WIN It's Your DAY kit from Unity Stamp Company.
ALL comments need to be posted by midnight FRIDAY to enter. :) GOOD LUCK!

Plans for the weekend...we have our monthly family dinner on Sat. there will be about 20 of us! :)

Then hopefully crafty time!

Hope you have a great one!
