GUI - Day 5 - Last Day :(

Happy Friday!  Today is the last day for my as Growing in Unity girl.  I have had so much fun and you have all been so wonderfully sweet to me!  Thank you for all the generous comments!

On a happier note....today is October 14th!!!  What does that mean?  It means today I have been married to my amazing husband for 11 years today.  AND...that means that around 3:00 this afternoon we will be leaving the house with no children in tow....just the two of us heading off to spend a couple of days together alone.  Woot woot!!!!!  (In all honesty....I kinda miss my kids already...but is good for all of us ;) )

So....forgive my rambling....let'st get to what you are really here for. Tee-hee!

Today I created a mini paper bag album for you.  A friend of mine is talking about creating Christmas cards out of the paper bag mini albums and she asked if she could borrow one that I had on display some time ago.  Talking to her made want to attempt the same thing.  This would be quite a job to do for everyone on your Christmas card list....and quite bulky to mail.  But maybe to a few special loved ones.  I thought I would leave a page for a photo for each of my kids along with a family photo and then a journaling spot to go along with each photo.  It is pretty simple....but once I add some photos I think it will look very nice.  I can't wait to see what my friend comes up with....she said she is not doing it as an album just a card......

Here is mine:
I used a mixture of different Unity Stamps for this project.
Sentiment on the front and the cross on the back are from "Something Within"
"Family every moment counts" is from the "May 2011 KOTM"
And the snowflake stamp is a random stamp I received when I purchased a grab bag from the most recent Unity Grab Bag sale (those are SO FUN!!!)
(forgive the photos...hubby took the camera so I was stuck with my phone camera again :()














I hope you have enjoyed visiting me this week as much as I have enjoyed having you!  I would love it if you would follow me and stick around for more fun projects to come!!!!
