FWF and TGIF!!

Can you feel the excitement?  Next week is Unity's release party for the new Cosmo Cricket stamps and their second anniversary!  And, I just ordered the as yet unreleased Ippity sets so I can ship them to you on the big release dat of May 13!!!  Wait till you see them!!

For now, I'll show you the rest of Mom's scrapbook!

First, this view of the water from Signal Hill, along with all the weeds that kept my allergies alive for ten days!!!  I used the fabulous Ippity paper with the branch stamps from Ippity "Right Where You Should Be."

Next is the cover - I found an embroidered sunset I did in the 1970's and decided to use it, finally!!  I cut the largest round nestabilities circle and put the embroidered piece in the void.  The paper is from an old photo stack I had with blue sky and clouds.  I added a stamped balloon from Unity's "Love is in the Air," and stamped the word "memories" with versamark and white embossed it.  It's from a Unity scrapbook kit, I believe.  I love the way this turned out!

Next is a fairy stamp and sentiment from Unity - I gold embossed the fairy on a piece of acetate and cut it out so I could put it over the photo and make it kind of ethereal.

Finally, the mailbox - a St. John's style mailbox!  I ordered Unity's "Sending My Love" expressly to decorate this page.  I spend a lot of time at the post office so I can relate to this set!  

I'd love to hear from you all - have a great Friday and keep your eyes peeled for all the great Unity surprises.  They're two years old because they love their customers and appreciate their business.  Remember to visit all the other FWF'ers here.
