stamp + paper = fruity goodness

I love it when a plan comes together (even when it's not really a plan - LOL!). I was crafting with my bestie last night and took along my new Unity set, Sweetest Day. She had just come back from an event where she won the Cosmo Cricket Garden Variety pack. Coincidentally, the Unity blog challenge this month is fruit. Combine those three things with this week's Clean & Simple Fall to Layout (#140) and I got this....

Can I say that I love this?!?! It just came together perfectly! The only thing I didn't love was gluing on all of those white circles... but it worked better than colouring in with the ever-fussy white gel pen (do you know what I'm talking about?). I think I have 5 white gel pens and they all work in a range from quite poorly to somewhat adequately.

Thanks for stopping by and happy Wednesday. Hope you are having a good week. Hope the sun is shining where you are. It is here. :)
