Unity World Record Inspirational Blog Hop!!!

It's time. We've made it. Now lets get hopping! Today is the HUGE Unity World Record Inspirational Blog Hop. So, if you didn't start at the beginning, please do so. Head on over to Angela at the Unity blog and start hopping! There are a lot of very talented Unity ladies participating in today's awesome event.

For your viewing pleasure today, I have altered a recipe box and created 5 cards and a date reminder book to place in it. The book has one page for each month to place all your birthdays and anniversaries and was created with my BIA.

To end in true Unity style, here is a couple quotes for you!

Success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the obstacles which he has overcome.
~Booker T. Washington

I never cease being dumbfounded by the unbelievable things people believe.
~Leo Rosten

Your next stop on the train is

Hip Hop Hangover!!!

Hip Hop Hangover

Once again it is that time! Yup, its hip hop hangover! Head on over to the Unity blog to see a list of all HHH posts for today! We had an amazing Hip Hop yesterday. Angela and the gang released not one, but TWO great new sets! Floral Friends and Birdie Inspiration are the new awesome sets. I can't wait to get them! There are also some great sales including some bundle packs!

Gus joined us on the chat thread yesterday and was giveaway happy, which worked great for me! I ended up winning a Rubber Rack!!! I've been eyeballing them for a while now and can't wait to try it out! Thanks, Gus!

Ok, enough chatting! Here are my two cards that I created for the Hip Hop Challenges yesterday! The first challenge was to create something using purple, black and white. The second challenge was to create a project with a spring theme. I used the March KOTM for both cards today.

I decided last night to make one last minute project. Seeing all the May Day baskets in the blog hop yesterday, I decided to try to make a little basket of my own. It is by no means a May Day basket in my mind (it doesn't shout SPRING). I think I am going to go get some flowers to put in it and keep at my office. My office is pretty bare right now and could use a little pick me up. I created this using coasters, my BIA, the March KOTM and some ribbon!
