Etsy Inspired Challenge 55

Hello ladies! :) (I know.. I swear start with the same thing all the time!)

It is week 55 of the Etsy Inspired Challenge! :) This weeks shop really touched me this week. I totally love the natural look to everything! It is all sooo beautiful! The shop is called The Salty Cat Co. I am not lying when I say I love every single piece in this shop.

Here is my inspiration piece:

I loved the green wooden beads. They have such a natural feel to them! They COMPLETELY inspired layout!! :)

The journaling on this picture reads "The beauty in Maine is incredible at this time of year. The leaves are changing, it's getting cool, and the water is calm. My favorite time of year. I am in complete bliss..."

I would say being at the lake on a calm, clear night is one of my (if not my ultimate) favorite places in the world! I love sitting under the stars and just being able to have a clear, peaceful mind.

Here is the prize for this week :)

To play along, go to The Salty Cat Co etsy shop, pick an inspiration piece, create something wonderful, and then link it up to the etsy inspired blog for a chance to win this gorgeous bracelet valued at $35!!!! :) We can't wait to see your creations!!!!

And since it is the last Saturday of the month... we have ... A UNITY GIVEAWAY!!! :) One lucky participant will win the set Folk Inspired!

Now that I have chatted away..go check out the rest of this amazing DT! :)

The title of it is Say What? because Raine came up with this joke:
Knock, Knock

Hannah Montana
Hannah Montana who?
Hannah Montana say what?

Raine thinks it is hilarious so I snapped some pictures of her while she was telling me the joke and I loved how the photo's came out! :)

Friday Friends with Flair kick off! :)

Today is the first day of a new Unity tradition. We are out with the old (Hip Hop Hangover) and we are in the with the new (Friday Friends with Flair) :)

I can't wait to see what else Angela has in store for us when it comes to new stuff :) I know whatever it is will be fabulous!

I came up with a pretty simple card:

I stamped the background and the pink card stock with Hearts of Old, and then used the bird image from the August 09 KOM. :) I thought this fun American Crafts ribbon would be a good addition.

The sketch is from this weeks Limelight Papercrafts challenge. :)

Now if you are just starting to check out the Friday Friends with Flair hop, start at the Unity blog :)

Thanks for stopping by! :)
