Hip Hop Christmas! Dec. 24


Good morning and good day!  If you're here for the UNITY and IPPITY CHRISTMAS HIP HOP  - WELCOME!

Can you believe that Christmas is creeping up on us already!

TODAY, we are sharing our Journaling Christmas ideas.  I have for you, a special peek at my stocking!  It's the largest stocking I have ever had, and if I came across a larger one, I'd probably buy it!

"  STALKING SANTA"


I decided to journal about dec 24, because it is the same every year.  I place my HUGE stocking on the couch and wait for Mark to fill it, which is hilarious, because he takes it to heart that he has to fill this ENORMOUS thing.   I usually get lots of socks and even PJ's and slippers have fit in there.

I made some tags using Distress Ink, and I stamped on each of them.  This one uses the flower from the Nov. Kit of the Month.


This tag uses that cute couch!


And this tag uses one of the sentiments from the kit, and I couldn't resist using this single stamp called DO NOT OPEN.  I always break this rule.  ALWAYS.  I let the kids open one gift too on Dec 24th.  Usually new pajamas.


Here is a look at the NOVEMBER Kit of the Month  "Picture Perfect" by UNITY:


Picture Perfect stamps used:

- Couch
- Flower
- "some things" sentiment
- picture perfect
AND I used one of this cute Christmas stamp, called DO NOT OPEN:


REMINDER:
