GROWING IN UNITY WITH CAT'S SKETCH FEVER AGAIN!

Thanks for stopping by for another day of Growing in Unity.  I hope you have enjoyed my projects half as much as I enjoyed creating them--so much FUN!  Today, I am using a sketch from my local scrapbook store (lss), Cat's Creations Scrapbooks, and participating in "Cat's Sketch Fever".
This is a two page layout I created using BoBunny's St. Nick collection and a sketch by CatNanDo for Cat's Sketch Fever. On the left page of the layout, for Nick's name I used the Carnivale alphabet by Marah Johnson.  Love this alphabet! The circle accents are from the February 2012 SMAK kit and I used Glossy Accents to make these look like epoxy accents.  The ribbon the banner is hanging from is by May Arts.  On the right page of the layout, the sparkly green ribbon is by May Arts and the bakers twine is by The Twinery.  The special stamp is from the January 2012 SMAK kit and the tags and year tag are from the February 2012 SMAK kit.  The patterned papers are all by BoBunny and the plain cardstock is by WorldWin.  I used a UniBall Signo white pen for my journaling.  The Adirondack and Powder Puff ink pads.   

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to leave a comment for a chance to win one of two prizes:  A prize from "Cat's Creations Scrapbooks" for Cat's Sketch Fever (no international winners, sorry!) and a prize of 2 Itty Bitties (your choice) from Unity.   So, comment away and good luck.
