And today's challenge is....

I am still plugging away at the Unity Challenges. You still have time to get in on them. If you have some Unity Stamps, you are elligible for some prizes. :) I'm just doing it for fun. Check it out at .

Here is the link to the 4th challenge: I love, love, love this inspiration photo, but don't think I did it justice. I just couldn't get the worn look I was going for. But it is done. And I am moving on. (And seriously, I am getting tired of Blogger flipping my photos, but I can't figure out how to fix that.)
I did a layout yesterday, too. What do you think about that? LOL I seem to be on a roll! I try to keep if fair with the kids, so it was Collin's turn for a layout. I love these pictures of him trying to get a butterfly to land in his hand at the zoo. He was worried I would put flowers and "junk" on it and make it pretty. Never fear, little man. Mom can make a boy page. I was going for a field journal look. I have been stamping alot more lately (Which is good considering how many stamps I own. Seriously.) I totally forgot I still had this bug set from Close to My Heart. Made my day to find it again. I thought I had sold it. I'm glad I didn't.

Off to try the next challenge: stamping on fabric. Did you see that, Pam? I totally need some stick stock. But I don't have any. Boo.

Since I don't generally do fabric, I got out some twill ribbon and thought it would be great stamped with my banner stamp. Cutting it out was tricky, but I think it looks okay. Definitley out of my comfort zone. I'm glad I tried it and have some other ideas for it next time. Here is the blog with the challenge and a great example:

Those stamps are perfect for that layout! It is very un-pretty ;)
