Unity Blog Hop

Welcome to the Unity Blog Hop.  We are very sad to say goodbye to Thienly who has decided to step down to take more time for her family and other interests.  She will be missed as she is amazing!

I have saved this little Maya Road tin (held some chipboard accents) forever, just waiting for the right project.  Well here we are.  My daughter and I are heading to Europe for Spring Break and both of us like to keep little mementos (ticket stubs, etc) of things so one of use will be able to use this little tin for just that.  I have used some old Teresa Collins paper along with the Vintage Passport and Tiny Number Tags stamps - (just being released as singles this week)!  You know how much I love my SMAK kits, but how wonderful to be able to get some of the stamps singly!  Even better these NEW RELEASES ARE AT GARAGE SALE PRICES!  The twine is from Divine Twine.
