Hip Hop is BACK!

If you're like me you were really missing Hip Hop these last two weeks. Well I am happy to say that not only is Hip Hop back for 2009 but I am now part of the blog hop as one of the new members of the Unity SCRAPBOOKING Design Team! YAY! Make sure you start your hopping with Angela over at the Unity blog and then just follow along!

So without further ado here is my first layout for this week's Hip Hop showcasing one of Unity's newest releases "Shine On!" (UK-339A) - tell me this is not one of the cutest stamp sets EVAH!


I just recently took these pictures of Brandon and just couldn't wait to scrap them. He is starting to lose that "baby-ness" to his face and looking more and more like a big boy these days. But there is no denying that his sweet smile and those big brown eyes light up my life. That's for sure!


So of course I had to use some GLITTER on this layout with these adorable lamps. It's hard to see from this photo but the stream of light under the lamp is covered with yellow stickles and I sprinkled some rhinestones throughout. As a boy mama I hardly ever get to use bling so I jumped all over the opportunity to add some to this layout.


Aren't those glitter alphas out of this world?!? I've had those in my stash for quite some time now and as soon as I saw these adorable lamps I KNEW I had to have the two meet up on a page somehow. So fun!

My next layout uses a stamp set that I've had in my possession for awhile now and have just been dying to use called "Amazing Me!" (UK-154A).


I actually created this layout for a challenge in which you had to use a snapshot from around your house or everyday life and scrap what it says about you. I took this photo of my feet in my favorite pair of sassy patent leather red flats and took off from there.

...

I used that gorgeous large "Amazing Me" stamp for my title. A perfect fit! (pun intended ... shoes ... feet ... hee hee!)

...

I also used this pretty little flower stamp from "Owl Always Love You" (UK-198A) another one of my favorite stamp sets from Unity on this layout as well.

Well that's all folks. Now it's time to hop on over to the super talented Jennifer's blog. Happy Hip Hopping!
