wow. 22.
so young.
so beautiful.
I hope you go out and have a HUGE amount of FUN!
Ramsey is so very sweet.
She joined HIP HOP for the first time a few weeks ago.
RIGHT AWAY took it upon herself to SPOIL us ALL at Unity with a basket of CHOCOLATE!
It was a memorable day - let me tell you!
We were all hyped up on chocolate and had a very BIG ENERGY level for HIP HOP!
It was gone immediately!
{a few tid bits from my girl Ramsey}
Well...on Wednesday I will be 22! What a great birthday present to be showcased on Unity!
I live in the snowy state of Wyoming!
I am a mom to a gorgeous 17 mo. old son ~ Tryzmen.
I recently got engaged at the end of July.
artist Kristine Bents
How did you find Unity Stamps?
I saw a card on someones blog that used Cupcakes A'La Yummy and HAD to have it! The next thing I knew...I had fallen in love!
What is your favorite Kit?
It's sooo hard to pick just one! Right now I LOVE Giggle Grove, but Cupcakes A'La Yummy would have to be my favorite since it's what got me addicted to Unity in the first place!
artist Cassie Medema
Do you have a fave color combo??
Pink and green most definitely!.....or pink and black or pink a brown....or brown and teal......I'm VERY indecisive when it comes to favorites!
What inspires you??
Oh my goodness! I am truly inspired by all sorts of things.
A piece of paper with a business card glued to it is inspiring to me!
I get TONS of inspiration from, of course, the FABULOUS UNITY DT and their customers as well.
I have met(cyber speaking) some of the greatest peeps!
I truly am inspired by Angela and Chris as they have taken a dream and ran with it or "grabbed life by the horns." I would love to have a business where I could work with my family and greatest friends.
{It is a dream come true! Thanks for the sweet words!}
September Kit of the Month from Unity
these stamps created by: Kristine Bents & Elizabeth Neuman
Do you have a favorite quote?
Actually I have a favorite verse and a favorite quote:
Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;in all your ways acknowledge him,and he will make your paths straight.
- Proverbs 3:5-6 (NIV)
AND one of my favorite quotes..although there are hundreds....
"A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous."
- Coco Chanel
What sort of music do you enjoy while crafting??
Oh goodness....I listen to everything from the Legally Blonde Musical soundtrack to AC/DC to ZZ Top to George Strait!..and an occasional beat from Bean's (Brooke) blog! ......I can't get enough of music!
Are you reading any books at the moment?
THE TWILIGHT SERIES!!!!! OF COURSE! I am ALMOST done with Eclipse....I have been reading it the longest of the 3 (going on a month!WHAT?!?!), but I have already bought Breaking Dawn and took a peek!
Team Edward or Team Jacob?
I'm in a love triangle with the 2 of them...I can't decide....

Be sure to take a peek at Ramsey's BLOG and GALLERY for more FUN!
Be sure to wish her Happy Birthday while you are there!

Are you ready for a little HIP HOP?!

Happy Monday! MORE of our AMAZING Anne-Marie & Fun with CPS!

First fun fact of the day! Unity is sponsering CPS this week!
The CPS Design Team is so very talented and they have made some amazing creations with Unity!
I hope that you will check out this weeks sketch and choose to play along!
My FAB Design Team has participated and posted their projects HERE - take a moment to post yours in the Unity Forum as well so I can see all your amazing talent!
Click on the CPS header below to see the sketch!
I really need to make time in my life to get my own projects complete!
My day will come...till then I am MUCH too busy getting more FUN & AMAZING rubber in your hands.
You all entertain and inspire me so very much. Just when I think I will never see something more brilliant - I click a button and voila - MAGIC!
From black and white images on my computer to its fullest potential in the hands of creative, brilliant women!
More treats in my email INBOX this morning!
Scrapbooking is such an art, it captures life and holds the moment forever!
I can only imagine the exhiliration our children will feel when they are adults. These pages of time hold love, memories, adoration, and the re-assurance that they were deeply loved their entire life.
Looking at the pages created about their childhood - nothing short of spectacular!
Like a novel unwinding....holding on to every story.
I love that.
Anne-Marie your family has an amazing heirloom in the making.
You create from the heart.

Aren't they adorable?
Be thankful for what you have and you will end up having more. But if you concentrate on what you don't have, you'll never, ever have enough.
Oprah Winfrey

“If we are not happy and joyous at this season,for what other season shall we wait and for what other time shall we look?”

The pleasantest things in the world are pleasant thoughts: and the great art of life is to have as many of them as possible.

Talk happiness; talk faith; talk health. Say you are well, and all is well with you, and God shall hear your words and make them true.
Ella Wheeler Wilcox

Second Layout - This one took my breath away! I love it!
Live in Wonder
Stamps used: Circle of Thanks - Small Elegance - July KOTM

Believe in yourself. Have faith in your abilities! Without a humble but reasonable confidence in your own powers, you cannot be successful or happy.
Norman Vincent Peale
Speaking of Norman Vincent Peale..
Have you read his books? My mother in law gave me every single one - they are amazing!
The Power of Positive Thinking was my favorite!
Just my little book plug o' the week!

I have found that if you love life, life will love you back.
Arthur Rubinstein
If you ask me - I would say this beautiful little one LOOKS like she is loving life! I hope you are feeling the exact same way today - if not...change the way you are looking at things, makes a HUGE difference!

I hope that your Monday was as inspired by these layouts as mine was.
Unity = Happiness
don't 'cha think?
One more for good measure. :)

Perhaps we're too embarrassed to change or too frightened of the consequences of showing that we actually care. But why not risk it anyway? Begin today. Carry out a random act of seemingly senseless kindness, with no expectation of reward or punishment, safe in the knowledge that one day, someone somewhere might do the same for you.
Lady Diana Frances Spencer

Kind of like what Heather did for me....
Did you see this?
Take a moment to view my sweet and adorable DT Member Heather Mellstom -
She used Unity in one of HER moments in the sun.
THANK YOU Heather!
You are so sweet to me!
Some fabulous ideas!

PS. Does anyone know Oprah? I really need to talk to her. LOL!
