GROWING IN UNITY WITH TWISTED SKETCHES

I made this layout as part of the Unity Addict Challenge - to color your images--with copics, colored pencils, watercolors, markers, etc.  I also used Twisted Sketch #082. I used the suitcase stamp from the Hodgepodge of Happiness set.  The shell stamp is from one of the very first sets that Unity had.  I bought it at my local scrapbook store and it is no longer available.  However, there is a similar stamp available in the Beach Days and Sun Rays set.  The journal spot is from the Sweet Loving and Living set--love this stamp!    The sunset ocean paper is from Creative Imaginations and the footprint paper is from Windy Hills.  These are both papers I have had in my stash for quite some time--but I loved them and was saving them I guess for this layout--love how it turned out.  The felt flourishes are by Queen & co.   The vacation title sticker is from  Lil Davis Designs and the palm tree sticker is from Soft Spoken.  I used copic markers to color the suitcases and the seashell.  I used Momento and Ranger distress inks.  The cardstock is from The Paper Studio and Bazzill.  I was so happy with the way this turned out and I hope you enjoyed seeing it as well.  Don't forget to leave a comment every day this week for a chance to win a set of Unity stamps.  Thanks for stopping by and see you tomorrow!
