Julie's Blogoversary Blog Hop & FWF Friday

I have been invited to participate in my crafty friend's Julie Odil's Blogoversary Blog hop and today happens to be Friends With Flair Friday for Unity!  

The theme for this hop is Celebrate Friendship!   If you arrived here from Gwen's Blog then you are on the right track!  If not head on over to Julie's blog to start this hop from the top!

There are some fun prizes to be had along the way.  And I know that Julie will be picking 5 random winners from the blog comments for some super awesome prizes!

Be sure to leave me a comment here (I would love it if you follow me as well) and I will randomly pick someone to receive some Unity Itty Bitty's!

I've been into art journalling a bit lately and created this art journal page.  I have this fun canvas from Pier 1 which I loved and wanted to create or recreate it in my journal.


Here is the canvas from Pier 1:



Here is what I came up with:



I drew the pictures and used acrylic paints and some stamps. My sentiment stamp is from Unity Stamp Co. I just loved how it looks in my journal it's a happy page.
