Hi everyone and welcome to my blog :)))
If you have just joined in...here is the order of the blog hop from start to finish:
MELINDA ( That's ME!)
Every year in the month of November, Flying Unicorn sponsors "Flying Unicorn Gives Back." This year, we've chosen a nationally recognized charity, Best Friends Animal Society in Kanab, Utah.
For each project that is uploaded to our forum gallery, Flying Unicorn donates $1.00 to a maximum of $1,000 and. we've always reached our goal. With your help this year we will again.! Flying Unicorn also donates 5% of all sales during the month of November to the charity. Finally, do not forget to mark your calendars for our Silent Auction November 8th - November 16th .
We have set up the Flying Unicorn
page on the Best Friends site where monetary donations can be made as well to help us reach this years goal of $3000.00 in charitable donations.
Best Friends' mission of No More Homeless Pets tries to place dogs and cats who are considered "unadoptable" into good homes, and to reduce the number of
unwanted pets through effective spay and neuter programs. Since its inception,
the number of dogs and cats being destroyed in shelters has fallen to
approximately 5 million a year. There has been much progress,but there is still
much more to do. Best Friends made national headlines with their intensive efforts in rescuing so many animals in the aftermath of hurricane Katrina..
In honour of Best Friends, and the November Kit of the Month -Heart's Twilight - I would like to share with you the extra special project I made using the Kit of the month :
This is our gorgeous dog, Mimi....she came into our family as a pup and we have had her just over a year. She is so well behaved, loves kids, gentle and is a good guard dog as well...couldn't imagine life without her.
"Part of the Family"
Went for the soft creamy tones of this kit. I have added a few things from my own stash like the Prima Vine and the stamping but basically most of it comes from what was sent to me :)
In the kit came some gorgeous Lavendar Gold Magicals from Lindy's Stamp Gang. My first time at trying any of their products and I can honestly say I had fun and loved it!. I basically added some of the powder to water and treated it like watercolour paint. Love the gold shine that it has to it.
I also re-coloured in some of the cream flowers using the Shimmerz in the kit and the Magicals. They are so much fun to experiment with.
Do not forget to join Alda and Shona this month with their process of making the below layouts. Alda will show you step by step on our You Tube Channel, while Shona has done a complete Build a Page for you all!
