** Flying Unicorn Gives Back Blog Hop **


 If you just came from Lynne's blog then you're on the right track! If you have gotten lost along the way here is the beginning blog hop Flying Unicorn. To get ya going again! Happy Hopping!! :)

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 honor of Best Friends, and the November Kit of the Month -Hear'ts Twilight - I would like to share with you the extra special project I made using the Kit of the month :

I choose to do a LO of my sweet Macy.. I lost her on 10/13/13.. She was my best buddy and it really hit me hard when she died. Me and Maggi, who has also lost a fur baby this year are also teaming up with a challenge to help raise more for this worthy cause.. Stay tuned for more information on that as well!

I love using the gorgeous papers in this kit. It is one of my most fave kits to date! The Studio 75 papers "Rosalie in the Garden" collection (love these!!) and the Yummy CS in this kit matched my furbaby to the T!! Oh and those YUMMY Prima flowers.. This kit is LOADED with YUMMY flowers!!! I think I could handle a repeat of this kit I loved it so much! LOL

The only thing that I added additional was a few extra mediums and the laser cut chippies. Never fear tho we have them in the Flying Unicorn store!! They are the New Leaky Shed Chippies (Large center piece paper covered piece under the pic and the corner). The Wing chippies are Dusty Attic I have had for a long time.. I think I am a Chippy hoarder! LOL The Letter Chippies are in the kit as well as the wooden heart and bird!!! They are treated with Aged Ivory Embossing powder. Love this stuff for chippies!! Here is the LO and a few close ups..






I don't know if you can see it or not.. But on the chippy above her name is a halo.. I thought it was cool that on this piece I found that. So I did it in gold and that was the only section of the piece that I colored. That was a special little touch for me.. She was an angel in every sense of the word! Well most of the time anyways! LOL When she was not getting into things! Miss her always, but remembered forever in our hearts.


So now on to the kit!! More things to see right around the corner!!!

Heart's Twilight is now available with an amazing and fun off the page creation- take a look:
