Love Life {Growing In Unity}

***Looking for my GIVEAWAY? Look HERE***



Hi!
Today marks my first day of being the Growing In Unity gal!
I am so excited for this opportunity and this week is going to be a fun one!

Stay tuned each day this week as I show you something I've created using stamps from Unity Stamp Company...and we'll have a big celebration at the end of the week as we have a blog hop with Unity Stamp Company and Authentique Paper coming up on Saturday, October 8th.
You won't want to miss it!

If you are new here or aren't already a follower: I'd love to have you follow my blog!
If you are one of my regular readers: Thanks for coming back! I love having you!


I am a big fan of the Melody Ross kits - isn't that bike adorable?
I paired it with a sentiment from the Adventurous Itty Bitty and, since all the stamping was in black, I added some color with these fun papers from Cosmo Cricket.


Leave a comment telling me what you think about today's project so you can be in the running to win a free kit from Unity Stamp Company!
{The randomly picked winner will have a choice of one kit from the following list: Sending My Love, Bitty Backgrounds, Little Me, Bella Fiori, Homegrown , Hugs & Kittens, Handmade Holiday, Bella Trees, Imagine It - to be sent to a domestic address only, please.}

And, of course, I'd love it if you sign up to be a follower!

Thanks for stopping by today!

I am already a follower. I love that bike. You may recall I just did a scrap page of my dog on my bike on the Fiskateers (Liftateers). This bike stamp is great! I wish I had it when I went to do my page. Any ways, your card is very cute. I love the paper and the colors (as I said the stamp) and the definition. That stick pin is great! Everything goes together so well right down to the twine!
