Friends of Unity July Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to our Friends of Unity July Blog Hop. This month the theme is a paper piecing challenge.  True to form, I had to think outside of the box. I grew up with paper dolls and Barbies, but didn't want to use an Angie girl. I opted for something to spark some creativity in others. 

This onesie is perfect for this months theme. I also had a friend who was expecting a baby when I made this card. If it was going to be a boy, I figured I would just need to make a second card in shades of blue. Lucky me she had a girl and this card was quickly whisked away to them to celebrate.

I utilized one of my favorite layouts to make this one. I didn't default to this design because I was stuck in a creative rut, but rather a lack of time with college classes and back to work taking up my precious free time. Happy to have finished what I decided on and a baby card to boot! That totally slipped my mind until she made the announcement. I guess lucky for me I picked pink. 

Hop along with the other Friends of Unity and see their creations...
The winner for my giveaway last month is Denise Bryant. Please message me your info so I can mail out your prize.
