Growing in Unity!!

It's Wednesday and time for another Growing in Unity girlie! This week we have Christine Nay amazing us with your Unity creations.

Here is a little something about Christine:

"Hi, I’m Christine Nay and I live in Boise, Idaho, with my two fur babies. I have been crafting most of my life and in the last few years have fallen in love with papercrafting. When I first started making cards, I wasn’t all that crazy about the stamping thing but somehow, I think it was through blogging, my mind was changed and now I love my stamps, especially my Unity stamps.
My style is quite eclectic--mostly shabby/vintage but with a little cute thrown in there for good measure. I recently started doing some collage and altered art and love it!!!!

I hope you enjoy my week with Growing in Unity. Be sure to stop by my blog because Unity is kind enough to giveaway a stamp set to one of the commenters on my blog!"

And check out this beauty:

Be sure to swing by Christine's blog all week for a chance to win a fabulous Unity kit.

Till next week.

I have been stamping and scrapbooking since I was invited to my first stamp party more than 10 years ago.  I immediately fell in love with paper crafting and have been stamping ever since.  My husband and I live in Washington State with our menagerie of pets, and where he owns and operates a local pet store.  I also work as a manager in technology, but my passion is paper crafting! I love this craft and all the wonderful people that have come into my life through it.  Happy stamping all!

DT Tuesday with Jen E from the Block!

wut up unity peeps?!  are you getting ready for the upcoming CHA releases from unity??  i have seen them, and mark my words...THEY ROCK!! i enjoy them very much.  i would fight for them if i had to.  i believe you will too. :)
today i went old school unity with my stamp choice.  as always, they are classic an can be used for pretty much anything.  i use those scrapbook stamps over and over again.  if you don't have any..check it out.  they do not disappoint.
(here's a better look with out my whacked out scanner.)
you know angela is big on quotes.  i am too, but i prefer quoting my kids.  it makes for the BEST layout titles (see above).  if you scrapbook, try it sometime.  i carry a little notebook around in my purse to jot down the funny things my kids say.
