Reading with FLAIR...

...cuz it's Friends with Flair Friday at Unity.... and because my DD thinks that reading is FABULOUS!A few days ago, I sat down to use up a few scraps and decided that my DD needed a new bookmark. She absolutely LOVES to read, which I'm sure I've mentioned before ;) I also could not WAIT to bust out my BIRDIE INSPIRATION set from UNITY stamps! This set is crazy cute and it was calling my name....you could say a "little bird" told me too get it, hee hee.

One of the reasons I love this set so much, along with so many other Unity sets, is that the quotes are PERFECT. LOVE THEM! Seriously HOW awesome is the quote I stamped on the back of the bookmark?

I also used the bird/flower stamp from the August Kit of the Month which is SO fresh and fun and was begging me to use it!

I colored the image with my copics, adhered the AMAZING quote to the back, and then added some fun ribbon to finish it. The best part was that after coloring , this only took about 5 minutes!
Well, that's not the best part...the BEST part was seeing the look on Madelynn's face when I gave it to her... have a great Friday and be sure to stop by the Unity Blog to see the list ALL the wonderful participants in Friends with Flair Fridays! And just a quick aside, I am out at CKC all day but as soon as I return, I will be back to look at everyone's creations. I am itching to do it now but I gotta go! So can't wait to see EVERYONE's blogs when I return home! For now...

I'll leave you with this:

OMGosh that is gorgeous, such a wonderful fresh image, and the quotes are absolutely perfect like you said. It's wonderful to hear that your daughter loves reading, i think teaching a child to read is one of the most precious gifts we can give them, opens up a world of possibilites to them.

Have a wonderful friday
