I did not have enough time to make something using a tree from Unity so instead I have my last scrapbook page from my trip to Maine last year.
We make it a point to walk the Marginal Way that goes along the coast from Ogunquit to Perkins Cove. It's a beautiful and peaceful walk with several picture opportunities. When we get to Perkins Cove, we always stop at the candy store for a special little treat, they have great coconut macaroons! I guess that defeats the purpose of taking a walk but oh well! LOL!

In the meantime, I can across a very interesting thread on SCS about making your own buttons. I love buttons!! I never seem to have the right size, shape or color since I recently began my collection. Check this out:
I cannot wait to try making some of these for myself! If you are looking for more comments, here is the link to the SCS thread. The blog is originally in German so I used Google translate to translate it into English.
Have fun making your own buttons!!!

This was one of the best parts of our trip. For the first time ever, we got the Disney dining plan. We ate at some amazing restaurants that we probably would never have been to without it! Yum! One this page it shows that we ate at Wolfgang Puck, Coral Reef and Teppan Edo in Japan.

This card was for Color Combination #230. It was to use Close to Cocoa, Certainly Celery, Cameo Coral, Blush Blossom and Whisper White. I love how this card came out. I think the squares backed in coral really make them pop!

I made a suggestion to my LSS, Life's Memories and More, to start carrying Spellbinders Impressabilities. She already carries Nestabilities and these Impressabilities are great! So I offered to make samples for her store to show her customers the difference between them and the Cuttlebug embossing folder.
Here is a card using the Cuttlebug embossing folder:
I used Textile Texture because the store owner, Tanya, likes this folder but has a difficult time using it.
Here is a close up for you to see the texture:
Now, here is the same card in a different color using the Spellbinders Impressabilities:
I used the Flower one as this background. When I ran it through my Cuttlebug I used this sandwich:
Plate A, Plate C, Impressabilities Template, Cardstock, Embossing Mat, Plate B
This was a little too thick and I was afraid that I was going to break off the handle. I think that next time I will replace the Plate C with another Plate B and shim it if necessary.
Here is a close up on this card:
I hope that I was able to show you the difference in the textures of these two products!!
