Hip Hop Thursday!

Hi everyone! Is it Thursday already?!? It seems like this week has just flown by. Must be because I was shacked up in my craft room playing with all of the amazing new releases from Unity. Yeah that's it! ;)

Here is my first layout for this week's Hip Hop using one of Unity's new alphabet releases Just My Type and lots of gorgeous winter themed singles including Joyous Snowfall (USK-102-1), Snowflake Serenade (USK-102-3) and Snow & Polka Dots (USK-102-4).


I love creating my "own" patterned paper with stamps and you can see how I did that on this layout by omitting some of the snowflakes in the Snowflake Serenade stamp and inking the rest with a soft brown chalk ink and stamping randomly on this really pretty distressed blue paper.


I used a few snowflake chipboard pieces, punches, and of course more stamps and lots and lots of glitter (that's two weeks in a row for me using glitter - I think that's a record!) to give my embellishments that look of glistening snow. This is actually a photo I took of my brother's black lab Sadie while we were playing outside in the snow the day after Christmas. Isn't she a cutie?

For my next layout I created a sweet baby page using another new Unity release called Be "Owl" Mine (UK-347A ).


I am WAY behind on my scrapbooking since I took several years "off" while I had my two boys so I dug into some oldies but goodies for these photos. These pictures are of my youngest Brandon when he was just 4 months old. Will you just look at those chubby cheeks?!? He's going to be 3 years old in just a few months and creating this layout brought back so many sweet memories and reminded me of just how quickly time goes by.


When I saw these stamps I couldn't wait to use them on a layout - LOVE this cute little owl and branch! Just too sweet!

Well that's all I've got folks! Your next stop along the Unity Hip Hop train is the ever so sweet and talented Jennifer Buck! ENJOY!
