Hi everyone! WOW tests at school, the impending Holiday rush,so much has been going on and I have had no time to scrap! of course, I always try to fit in some time, and I managed to take on one of the challenges that are going on right now over at The Flying Unicorn forums! We have some amazing challenges, and you can win an amazing RAK at the end of the month! The challenge I participated in is "Me, Myself and I" which was to make a layout about yourself. I don't take many pictures of myself but this was something fun, I went with a white tone to make things interesting and used some awesome Tim Holtz stamps too, check it out:

One Of A Kind 2

Wednesday, November 2, 2011

Thanks Everyone for all your lovely comments, I just loved working with this November Kit from Flying Unicorn, "Remember The Days" really is all about remembering those beautiful days, the papers just help you to reminisce so gorgeous. Here is another layout I made that I wanted to share with everyone, this one I had the most fun making, it is so beautiful I think, the papers just make it POP.

Isn't is simply amazing? That wooden banner, OMG to die for! LOVE! If you haven't grabbed your Kit yet, now is the time!!!! It's so worth it and you will have SO MUCH to work with CLICK HERE to visit the Flying Unicorn Store.

Remember this month is all about GIVING, and Flying Unicorn is doing it's part:


This month Flying Unicorn is donating up to $1,000 to Women in Distress. You can help and here's how. For each project uploaded to the Flying Unicorn gallery, Flying Unicorn will donate $1. Help us get $1,000 for Women in Distress. We need 1,000 uploads to reach our goal. Come on everyone, load up the gallery!!

If you have never suffered abuse at the hands of your partner, count your blessings. So many of our sisters have had to endure abuse, both physical and mental. Some of the Flying Unicorn members have lived these nightmares but somehow found the strength to remove themselves from these situations. They have shared their horrific stories, not for your sympathy, but to inspire other woman and give courage and strength to those in need. Their stories are purposeful examples meant to empower. Women in Distress is ready and waiting to aid those women who so desperately need help!

Please help us help Women in Distress by uploading your creations to the Flying Unicorn Gallery.

Thanks Everyone and Thanks for all your support!

LOVE, Frank!
