Unity FWF 8/26 - Beauty all its own

Happy Friday, Unity friends!!! We are 'up north' to enjoy one last looong weekend before the school year begins. My 5 year old met her teacher this week, saw her classroom, was excited to see two good friends in her class, and asks every morning how long before she GOES to school, really goes and not just to visit. LOL

And on the other hand, Tuesday is sure to be a sad day for our little one, age 21 months. She ADORES her big sister and they have had a blast playing together this summer. We'll just have to line up some playdates for her little friends. :)

And all of that to say that the seasons are changing, most definately - we've had some lovely cooler weather this past week, which is nice and not yet quite so nice, as I'm sure I will be griping about the cold in the long days of January and February.  I pulled out the Aug. 2010 KOM for this card:


















Recollections kraft c/s base; all paper but the green strip under the trees (K&Co) is My Mind's Eye
Momento Rich Cocoa Ink, Twine from the Twinery, Random button from my stash

I love Fridays. Even if nothing else is going right I get my fix of Unity inspiration!!! Be sure to check back at the Unity blog for the Feature $5 Friday set and to see everyone's cards.  I scored a new Unity kit - sew cute! - from the Oh My Crafts 40% off sale a couple of weeks ago. I think I'll ink it up for next Friday's post. :)

Thanks so much for visiting!
