100% Fun - Unity Retail Store Exclusive

Yesterday Paper Maniac introduced me as their "Charter" Guest Design Team member for the next two weeks. I'm telling you, I could not have felt more welcome. If you missed seeing my name "in lights" check it out ----> HERE
Today marks my official start and the Paper Maniac Design Team's theme for this week is "THANK YOU". My project may not look like the traditional thank you card, however, it is indeed a very special thank you card. Friday night a friend of ours took my son to play Paintball and then out to dinner for a little male bonding time. What a treat this was for an 11 year old boy and a much needed break for a tired mom. That ferris wheel was what caused me to NEED this Unity stamp set (100% Happy). I have seen so many amazing projects with this set which is a retail store exclusive meaning that it can NOT be purchased at Unity, however it is available at Paper Maniac. The FUN sentiment is also included in the set. The VIP pass was cut from a piece of Jillybean Patterned Paper which is two sided. One side of the paper is brown with little white flowers and the other is loaded with fun tags & sentiments.

Do you know any Military members or their families serving overseas? Paper Maniac is offering free shipping to APO/FPO mailing address with a $40 purchase or more for the entire month of October. Help me spread the word and tell them to use the this promotional code when checking out = SUPPORT

I love this Unity kit, too, now you really want me to get it. I'm still waiting for it to go on sale. LOL. I'm glad your son got to go out with your friend. Little kind gestures like that really make an impact in a child's life.

How sweet is this?!! Love the ferris wheel image, although I hate ferris wheels in real life. Can't deal with the heights! That was really nice of whoever took Adam out for some male bonding. What a supportive community you are surrounded by.
