August Blog Hop GIU

Happy Sunday!
I hope you are enjoying this
glorious weekend!

A couple of weeks ago, Maria, from Unity, 
contacted me to find out if I was available to blog
hop with the other girls from May and June.


So, I sent my response, and shortly afterwards, 
I received my stamp to work with
for the scheduled hop.
As soon I saw the stamp, 
which I open at the mailbox 
(couldn't wait to get home!!)
ideas were swimming in my head!!
I received the beautiful
Grace Girl, created by Angie Blom.

 Grace Girl

Here is what I created:

I used papers from Simple Stories Harvest line, 
gold embossed paper from DCWV, 
my leaf punch from EK Success.
She is colored with a variety of watercolors
from Prima and Derwent.
She also has a bit of Stickles.

I really enjoyed coloring her!
So, don't forget to hop along, 
and leave comments on all the GIU girls blogs.
You just might be the lucky winner to
 receive a prize pack from Unity!!
Here is the list:

Tara Sell
Angela Walters
Sheena Brooks
Laura Turcotte
Brittany Morgan
Renee Moran
Jen Gerwig-Dively
Lucinde van Ballegooijen
Maria Levine

That is all for me for now!!
Have an amazing day!
