Hip Hop Thursday with LOVE!

Hey everyone! Welcome to the LOVE edition of Hip Hop Thursday on my blog. Both of my layouts have a fun Valentine or love theme this week in honor of Valentine's Day. Make sure to start your blog hop with Angela at the Unity blog to see what she's got in store for you today - lots of new releases this week at Unity!

My first layout uses a great Valentine's Day image from the January Kit of the Month as well as a "sweet" heart image from the August Kit of the Month. If you're not a KOM member there's no better time to sign up than now. Check out the latest images for the Feburary Kit of the Month and all the details here. Can you say adorable?!?


This is my oldest son Darian on his first Valentine's Day when he was just 6 months old. Will you LOOK at those chubby cheeks?!?


I used the Just My Type alphabet set and my trusty Martha Stewart heart punch to create the title work here. I love this alphabet and have been using it on a ton of my layouts recently.


A punched out stamped image dressed up with a cardstock scallop circle, felt heart, and threaded pink button. A fun DIY embellishment!


Another sweet stamped image I dressed up this time with a cute little heart stick pin. I must admit I'm a bit addicted to stick pins lately - you'll see one on my layout below. I found these cute little heart pins at Joanns with the other sewing notions.


In keeping with the LOVE theme I created this layout using another old photo of my son Darian and I from my very first Mother's Day. Darian was just about 9 months old in this picture. Look at that sweet boy! *sigh*


I was lucky enough to be sent the adorable new release Numbers Etc (US-1009W) to play with this week. I LOVE this stamp! Just think of all the possibilities for this single - birthdays, favorites, friends, etc. And it's a great size for scrapbooking too!


Yummy Basic Grey Bittersweet papers and another stick pin - this little pearl pin is from an old set I got from Making Memories. So sweet!

That's all I've got this week folks. Now hop on over to the talented Jen E. and give her some love!
