Yay for Unity Did you know it was Unity Thursday? Of course you did. The design team is hopping today and all the action starts on the Unity blog. I didn’t get to play along with the Fashionista release last week, so I’m featuring THIS trendy girl today. I’m a huge fan of Project Runway.

Let’s CAS(E) this SKETCH! CTS is a challenge blog to inspire you to create a clean and simple card based on a fun sketch. Here is my inspiration for this week’s challenge and brand new sketch. FUN! That is what I think of this sketch. I moved the center of the sketch down to the bottom right corner.  I have a tendency to do that.  I like my elements to be in the corner for some reason.  It makes my eyes happy to have them there. To create the 3 little boxes I used washi tape.  Fun, right? I laid …
