Hip Hoppin into Christmas!


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

Merry Christmas everyone!  I hope you all have a FANTASTIC Christmas filled with love, blessings and miracles!  Enjoy every moment of holidays and hopefully, find some time to relax.

Today for the hop, I pulled out the NEW December 2010 Kit of the Month!  That is me and my husband, almost a decade ago.  Holy cow!  A decade.  I can't believe how fast it went.  And I still love hanging out with him, being with him, having him home with me.  He has been sick for the past few days and I secretly am happy that he's here with us.


I used 3 stamps from the December Kit on my layout.  Below is the quote which I thought was perfect for this picture.  I used some cream paint, and Shimmerz on top to dress up the brown paper.


Here I used that cute sewn image and used some Stickles to dress up the heart.  You can also see that journal block.  I think it's my favorite stamp in the kit.  I used it several times on the layout for backdrops.


There is that stamp again!  I stamped it both on cream and pink paper, trimmed and tucked them in behind other papers.  That flourish was cut with my Silhouette.  Those cute numbers are from Echo Park Be Mine collection.




HIP HOP SKETCHES?
Do you know about the Hip Hop Sketches?  If you play along, you can win some stamps!  And a little birdie told me that there are currently very few players, so I'm thinking that people just don't know where to find these challenges and where to upload.  That being said, your odds of winning are good if you play along!

You can find the info here at Splitcoast Stampers in Unity's Challenge Forum
This is the current Sketch #38:
