Hip Hop Thursday!

Hey Everyone! Hope you're all having a fabulous Thursday so far. Make sure to start your Hip Hop journey over at the Unity blog with Angela and follow along from there.

I've got two layouts for you today. The first is actually a layout I created for a challenge I hosted for VSBN over on Splitcoast Stampers this past weekend. We had lots of fun chatting and scrapping!


This is my oldest son Darian on his first day of preschool last year. Isn't he a cutie? Can you believe I actually just had to register him for Kindergarten this past week. My baby boy is growing up so fast! *sniff sniff*


I used several images from the absolutely adorable set "School Rock Star" (UK-344A) for this layout. Look at the cute little "chalkboard" letters I created with some white ink and embossing powder. I think every single one of my boys' "back to school" layouts will have images from this set on them - I LOVE it so much!

My next layout is all about winter which I so wish was over by now and, unfortunately, it seems that Mr. Punxsutawney Phil says it'll be another 6 weeks before spring arrives. Now why do we care what a groundhog thinks I ask? I'm just not sure! LOL


I love how bright children's snow gear looks against the stark white snow and I mimiced that here on my layout with lots of bright patterned papers against a white cardstock base. I used lots and lots of different Unity stamps on this layout including Amazing Me (UK-154A), Our Life, Our Stories (UK-343A), the single Joyous Snowfall (USK-102-1), and the great alphabet Just My Type.

Now hop on over to the amazing Miss Jennifer Buck to see what eye candy she's got for you to look at!

Great layouts! I was so confused at first cause I was like wait I've seen that layout already! I really enjoyed your challenge for VSBN! The winter layout is super too! My son could be going to kinder next year too but we are keeping him out a year! I know how hard it is - I cry at the thought of him going to summer school this year!
