Flying Unicorn Gives Back Charity Blog Hop & A Layout

Welcome to the Flying Unicorn blog hop! We have a great prize up for grabs this weekend! You should have arrived here from Jennifer's blog. If not, head on back to the Flying Unicorn blog to start the hop - you'll want to visit everyone's blog for some fantastic inspiration and your chance to win.


Every November, Flying Unicorn sponsors "Flying Unicorn Gives Back." This year, we've chosen to support a nationally recognized charity, Best Friends Animal Society in Kanab, Utah.

There are several ways we can make a difference:

- 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 will donate 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 also set up the Flying Unicorn page on the Best Friends site where monetary donations can be made 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 - Heart's Twilight - I would like to share with you the extra special project I made using the Kit of the month and featuring my canine best friend, Ryder:

I based my layout on Prima's October BAP, using the Prima Delight papers included in the Heart's Twilight kit.


A couple closeups:






 Supplies:


- Prima Delight papers: Destinations and Delightful
- Shimmerz Spritz: Cotton Candy and Bed of Roses
- Prima Delight tags
- Prima Delight tickets
- Prima Perdu flower
- Prima Delight Mini Roses

From my stash:

- Prima Chalk Ink: Tin Can and Dark Rust
- Prima Script Stamp
- Shimmerz Vibez: Jeni B Bleu
- Prima Diving alphas
- Prima Lifetime alphas
- Prima Resin Bird

And here is the awesome sketch it is based on:




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






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 Pagefor you all!
