Family Fun

Welcome to the Unity Blog Hop, you should have arrived from Karen's Blog.

With the trials and tribulations of our oldest daughter then having to put our 3 year old dog down it has been a very emotional two weeks.  I have had no desire to do much of anything.  However, I am working on moving on and being strong so that includes playing in my craft room.  This is what I created.  I used my Echo Park A Perfect Summer Collection along with some Saltwater Journaling cards and such by Elle's Studio and finally the July SMAK Kit from Unity.




Look at all the fun images in the kit that I used, love the 'this and that' arrows!
Just click on the picture to take you to this kit.

CAN'T WAIT to get this kit in my hands!  This is the new August SMAK kit I am stalking my mailman as we speak!  Have you signed up yet?  Click on the picture.

Now be sure to hop along and leave comments on all of the participating blogs.  Three random comments from various blogs (including this one) will be chosen to receive a $20 gift certificate to Unity Stamps!!

The next stop is:  Lisa H
