Hip Hop Echo Park!


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

Some brand new ECHO PARK stamps have been released at Unity this week and I REALLY like them.  The stamps match their Be Mine collection and they are vintage inspired stamps.

In the meantime, before I could get my hot little hands on them, I played with the first release "Boys Will Be Boys".  And since I have boys, I couldn't be happier to work with these stamps.  And also, creating more BOY and HUSBAND layouts was a goal of mine in 2010.  I beat my 2009 numbers, so that's something.




"@ FIVE"

I found this older photo (from 3 years ago) of my son trying to plow over his Uncle, and I KNEW it was perfect for these stamps.  I thought I would focus on the number FIVE and use up some old stash of chipboard pieces. 

To create FAUX DIRT, I spritzed some Shimmerz mist (Jenni B Bleu and Mud Pie) and then stamped the saying over top, followed by journaling.  The title was the last element to be added.

I just love how the CAUTION SIGN totally fits this picture, don't you love it when everything comes together?

I love this layout.... it reminds me of my youngest son!!! When he was 3 yrs. old he had got a monster truck big wheel, and drove like a wild man. He was riding it and hit the back of my car.... he jumped out of the monster truck bawling & wanted to know if we had insurance, it was so cute!!!

Anyways, I've rambled enough! Thanks so much for sharing!!!
