Edited with winner - Friends with Flair - Anniversary style

Rachel is the winner - it is posted on the link near the bottom of the post.

I am loving all the challenges this week and am SO happy I had some time at work to get some of the challenges done before the deadline. I found Unity almost 2 years ago soon after I moved to St. Croix. I NEEDED Hip hop at that point to stay sane on that island. I LOVED getting to know a whole bunch of talented crafty ladies because there were none that I could do anything with on the island.

The first card is using some October Afternoon Fly a Kite paper. We got it in at the store the other day and it didn't even make it on the shelves.... I love this collection - it's muted, but so pretty! This was for the Martini sketch challenge that was posted on Monday. I got to it on Thursday. I used the Unity Store kit from April - I got the total cuteness part of the set and have used it a lot since I got it. The "ribbon" is from Martha Stewart - it's fuzzy. The layout is from the sketch given on day 4 (yesterday) - LOVED the challenge and it worked great with my pictures that I just got printed. We went to visit my husband at work last week for dinner - he was on overnight duty, so we ate on the boat with him. Well, before we left the house, Abby said she wanted to dress up. It was FREEZING out and she didn't want tights on, so I let her. She's 3, why not. We got to the pier and she wanted to RUN to make her cape fly - so I took off her coat and she ran. Ryan was laughing so hard when he saw her - she has never wanted to go out and about in dress up clothes before. She had a great time.

Super cute ideas! Love the supergirl layout! Gotta love those little kiddos! My two boys get kitchen towels and pretend they are capes and running around screaming "Super Bunny" from Max and Ruby!
