Growing In Unity - Day 1

Hello!
Thank you for popping over and taking a peek at my blog. It's usually a pretty boring place and I always have a hard time keeping up on it.
I am so excited and extremely nervous being one of the GIU girls this week! I have always loved Unity Stamps! They are a small family owned and run stamp company in Minnesota. They have over 60,000 high quality red rubber stamps, all cooked to order. The selection of stamps is amazing! If you cannot find the stamp for the occasion at Unity, well then, you didn't look hard enough.

My project for Day 1 is this mini composition notebook. With the pen attached, you can easily drop it into your purse or keep it anywhere to jot down a note or create a list.
The stamp set I used is Queen of the Universe. This set is my absolute favorite, well... every stamp set I own is my absolute favorite.
I stamped, paper pieced and colored her in with Prisma Color Pencils. I could not even begin to guess on the paper... it was from my stash. The ribbon is one of those .50 rolls from Michael's, the mini pen is from the Dollar Tree and the mini composition books can be purchased at Walmart, 3/.88.
This is seriously a very cute and inexpensive gift to give to someone. Just a little thank you or thinking of you. The possibilities are endless.

Well I really hope you have liked my GIU Day 1 project. Please visit every day and leave a comment. I'll be picking not just ONE, but TWO WINNERS for an amazing prize from UNITY STAMP CO.
And please visit my GIU partner, Amy Martin Jones at The Tigers Haven. Amy also has 2 Amazing Prizes to give away from Unity.
Remember to visit every day and comment. And if you find that you kind of like it over here, please become a follower to my blog.
I'll see you all tomorrow!
Hugs,
Danny & Petey's Mom
