WOW, IT'S MY GROWING IN UNITY WEEK!

This is a two page layout I did of some photos my son took of John Glenn at the Glenn Research Center in Cleveland, Ohio, at the fiftieth anniversary of John Glenn's orbit around the earth.  NASA hosts Tweet-Ups (socials) and draws names from those who enter and my son was fortunate enough to have his name drawn. 

I used the sketch #02 from the Unity Stamp Challenge for this layout, but made it into a two page layout.  My photos were bigger than the photos on the layout, so I just used two photos.  The paper is from Carolee's Creations and was in a goody bag that I received at one of Cat's retreats.  It was perfect for this layout!  I used washi tape from Teresa Collins and My Minds Eye.  The ink I used was from Stampin Up.  The quote on the tag is from the "Birdie Inspiration" set of stamps and the "now and then", arrow/chevron, and number stamps are from the May 2012 SMAK kit, and the stars are from the "Stylin' Stars" kit.  The title is made using some silver glitter Thickers by American Crafts.  The ribbon on the tag is from my stash and I used glossy accents on the rocket to make it stand out.  The cardstock is by Bazzill. 

I am also going to link this up to the WOW Wednesday linky party on the Cat's Creations blog.  We have a linky party twice a month, on the second and fourth Wednesdays of the month and you have two weeks to enter for a chance to win a prize (no international winners).  Since I barely made it in by the deadline for the Unity Stamp Challenge, I will also enter this in that challenge as well.

Be sure you comment for a chance to win  two itty bitties (your choice) from Unity and a chance to win a prize from Cat's Creations.  Thank you so much for stopping by.  I hope you love Unity as much as I do!
