Feel Like You're Being Pulled in a Million Different Directions?

Happy Saturday! Today, the Unity girls are sharing projects made with the newest Store Kit from Unity called Livin' & Lovein' Life. There are so many cute images in the set, but I was really drawn to this marionette image.

Marionettes are puppets who are manipulated and controlled by an unseen hand. Sometimes life gets crazy... and I have to admit -- sometimes I feel like I'm being pulled in a million different directions. Have you ever been in that place where you start to feel out of control... and then a friend steps in to lend a hand at just the right time? That's what this card is all about. :)

Unity - Marionette Card

I wanted this card to be happy and joyful, so I paired the image with some bright, fun paper from the June Bug collection from Basic Grey. (The sentiment is from the same store kit.)

And... here's my girl all shimmery and glittered. Love those fish nets! ;)

I hope you're having a fantastic start to your weekend! If you'd like to see more projects used from this set, just hop over to the Unity Blog where you'll find links for all of the girls participating in the Store Kit Hop today.

  50. Personally, I LOVE your style, but mixed with this SUPER CUTE marionette image is just GENIUS! I can't wait to get my little marionette in the mail!!! She looks fun to play with, and glad you all like the fish nets, you should have seen her without them, she looked naked! LOL...So just had to add them for added SASS!
