the "WOW" girl...

I have the privilege today of getting to be the "WOW" (watch out Wednesday) girl at Unity, and it is a privilege to me to be featured on their blog. I created a couple of projects just for this awesome day.
The first is a fun lo of my dd. She was 3 here, seems like yesterday - yet so long ago at the same time, if that makes any sense (I often don't ). I have been having a blast looking through old photos and scrapping those that just tug at my heart. She was wearing a dance costume that she never performed ... my husband brought her to practice about halfway through the year and after that she never wanted to go again no matter what I promised her, (he thought she might have been embarrassed about falling during practice but we really never figured it out, but the good news is she is over it and just had a dance performance last night :)). We had already bought the costume so she used it plenty of times at home and boy did she look CUTE!
Paper: Pink Paislee - Lunch Hour; American Crafts - Moda Bella; KI Memories - Blue Urban Linen
Stamps: Unity Stamps - Love Grows & Our Life Our Stories
Stampin Up! Inks: Brilliant Blue, Pink Passion & YoYo Yellow
My second project I wanted to share is my attempt at organizing all those school papers that my kids bring home and appear about to explode in the current boxes they are residing in. I only have this one done for my youngest and need to do 2 more for the older 2. I like how it turned out. I know they won't hold it all but it should help in getting the "mess/memories" under control and organized. I just used an accordian file folder you can get at Walmart or Target or any office store for that matter. I used the really good red double stick tape to make sure it would last and the paper wouldn't peel off.

I wanted to share a couple more LO's I did also for the "So you think you can Scrap" contest over at Scraptivity. Do I really? think I can scrap... well, the contest did give me the little shove I needed to get scrappin so that is a bonus. It is kind of tough since they are doing dance themes and I have two left feet (I know nothing about dancing!)
First lo is "ballet" themed, second is "flameco" ... Unity stamps of course ;)
Well,thanks for sharing "my day" with me and taking time to check it out!
