Graphic 45 + Unity = HIP HOPPING FUN!

We are all hip hopping with Graphic 45 & Unity today! An amazing combo, right?
Be sure to start over at the Unity blog so you don't miss any of it!! :)

Love Birds
This card was made with the Le' Romantique Collection from Graphic 45. Ahh...so beautiful. And those little love birds are from the July Kit of the Month: Happily Ever After.

Brave
So the big news from our house this last weekend was that Calvin is now riding his bike without training wheels!!! He worked so hard at this while we were camping. I am so proud of him! He was pretty proud of himself too....can't you tell by his face? :)
I used A Proper Gentleman Collection on this page--> showing off my BRAVE BOY! I also used the 'be brave' definition & birds from Brave Girl and the heart journal is from Unforgettable Moments.


Now it is time to head over and see Eryn's FABULOUSNESS. :)

Orange is my favorite color and I love how classy and romantic you made it by combining it with peach.

Ok, I'm not going to be able to convey the GASP that literally came out just now when I saw that big orange bow, BUTTERFLIES, and what you did paper piecing those cute little birds-not to mention all the texture. HOLY GORGEOUSNESS!! And your little guy is SO brave indeed-how cute is he? You ROCKED the G45, my friend! Cant' WAIT to see u in a few weeks!
