It's the Inspirational Unity Blog Hop!!!



I'm so happy to be partaking...can't wait to hop along and see what everyone's created. Thanks so much for stopping by, and be sure to start at the Unity Blog to view the entire inspirational Unity blog hop. 

I decided to use my brand new Rain & Flowers set. The umbrella is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured with Copics. I masked the image then inked the rain drops with Versamark first, followed by Baja Breeze, then embossed them with clear embossing powder. I decided it needed some dimension so I stamped the umbrella again and popped it.  The patterned paper is Fancy Pants and I also used kiwi kiss, pomegranate and chocolate chip. The ribbon is from the Paper Source and the scallop edge was done with my new EK Success border punch. 

My favourite Unity quote...hmmm...that's a tough one, there are so many... Be The Change You Wish To See In The World.

Next you're hopping over to visit Lori for more eye candy. Go give her some lovin'!

Thanks for stopping by!
