Unity Hop- Down Memory Lane


*please click on picture to see it larger*

Happy Thursday!
for my hop card today I am going down memory lane….
to my first Unity stamps actually
yes that far back lol

My oldest daughter is graduating High School soon and her Prom is less than 2 weeks away. She has a few offers on the table for College and University and has pretty much decided on her course of action for now. I have watched her blossom and grow and work to find her own way in life- not just the one that perhaps people expected of her or actually didn't expect of her. I know that sounds vague but she has fought to get where she is today and to see so many schools offer her admission makes me so proud. I wanted to make her a card to show that I see her forging her own way and that she is doing the right thing…for her. So I dug into my Unity collection and found this quote from the simply named 'Unity Quote Bundle Pack'. Part of my first Unity purchase ever. And I saved and saved my pennies to get them as I needed these quotes in my collection!!! Great to say what your heart feels and also great to make up some quick cards. Oh and my daughter loves pink, black and white and Paris themes hence my photo backdrop today in her honour hee hee. 


Our Thursday sale will start this afternoon- stay tuned to the website and our Facebook page for updates!

In the meantime there are lots of stops on the hop today with great inspiration.  AND...We have TWO amazing Unity filled prize packages to giveaway.  Leave a comment on EACH blog in the hop (including the Unity blog) for your chance to win.  The winners will be announced Saturday night on the Unity blog.

So have fun hopping and commenting and have a fabulous Easter Weekend!!
