A shot of Unity with a dash of Peach....

Hi all!

The top of this post addresses today's Unity Friends with Flair blog hop and below is my Let's Get Peachy layout for today....




For today's blog hop, the lovely snow that's falling outside my window put me in the mood for a spring card. I used Melody Ross kits for the first panel (One of a Kind) and the bird in the second panel (Love Life). The sentiment on the second panel comes from the Ippity kit called Music of My Heart. The names of the sets are linked to the websites where you can find these wonderful stamps. (In the case of Ippity, the stamp name takes you where you can locate your very own Ippity gal.) I also have to give a shout out to Die Cuts With a View because all the patterned paper I used came from their Songbird stack. So cute.

Now.... my April DT assignment over at Let's Get Peachy was to show a little "how-to" demonstration of masking. I get to present it to you on this first day of April because we have a masking challenge for all who would like to compete for the monthly prize from our friends at Flamingo Scraps. I'll give you a peek at the super easy layout I created but for the step-by-step and the challenge deets, head over to the LGP blog. I can't wait to see what you come up with!



This layout was my way of remembering my great-grandmother Emilia. She loved to take an early walk on the beach whenever she joined us for summer vacation. She's the reason that, now as an adult, I like to catch at least one sunrise when I'm on vacation.

Thanks for dropping by and I hope to see you participating over at LGP!
