Unity Blog Hop



My project today is a little mini album I put together to give to my daughter, who is exploring the possibility of traveling across America from Washington State to Delaware in July. I wanted to give her something to log and journal her adventures!

I used stamps from Unity Stamp Company's June and November Kits of the Month for the cover.

Inside the cover, I put a little note. She plans to hitch hike which is extremely bothersome to me. I want her to be safe! Maybe I'll suggest flying out and renting a car and doing a rode trip with her! That would curb my fears and will also be fun!

The journal block comes from their September Kit.

Unity Stamp Company is featuring a sale on their previous Kits! This is the time to get them if you don't have ENOUGH! See their sales here: Sales at Unity



The inside pages were not made with a KOM stamp, but this stamp is cool all the same. I love this flower. It's big and has many uses!

This is TOO cute!!! If I saw this in a store, I'd have to buy it. I LOVE the colors!! I need that little birdie!!

Remind her that in some areas hitchhiking is illegal. I like your idea of a road-trip much better. Having someone to trade off the driving with is much more fun.

I love the travel book you made for her. I hope she knows how much you love her.
Wow - great project! I don't think I would be as open to the prospect of my daughter hitch hiking across the US as you seem to be! It would be such an awesome learning experience for her.

I'm with the others...LOVE the journal, but would do EVERYthing I could to keep her from hitch-hiking (including tying her to a chair -lol). Maybe you should make another journal so you'll have one for the trip too! ;P

Mixed Up Media Chix - Summertime Blog Hop!

I have a fun project to share today!  Very excited about this one.  I've been working on it for over a week and...well...it's still not completely done, but it's getting there!

And while this is a special gift, it's also part of a really fun blog hop I'm participating in with the other Mixed Up Media Chix!   Follow along...You'll truly be inspired.
So, if you need to start at the beginning:
