Hip Hop Thursday!

Happy Hip Hop everyone! Today we are celebrating the heroes in our lives and well it kinda goes without saying that my hero is my sweet hubby Salar. Not only is he an amazing father to our two boys but he is the most wonderful husband a gal could ask for. We've been together since we were 16 years old and he never ceases to amaze me. His heart is as big as his smile - he is so caring and sensitive and puts everyone before himself. I love you sweetie ... always and forever!

And here's a pic of my man just because ... he's pretty gosh darn handsome if I so say so myself! LOL


Okay now I am totally switching gears with my layout today. LOL I had wanted to do this layout ever since I saw this particular image in the Confessions kit (UK-409A). Not sure why but it immediately made me think of this particular picture and then a certain saying and, well, it all kinda fell into place from there. Hee hee!


You can click on the picture to see a larger image and read the journaling but basically if any of you had babies like mine who spit up CONSTANTLY you will know exactly what I mean when I say spit happens! It was my least favorite part of babyhood as both my boys were major spitter uppers (is that a word?!?). I swear we would go through 5-6 changes of clothes a day just because they would be soaked with spit up. And that was WITH a bib on! But hey that's life right? Spit happens! ;)


The fun part of this layout (aside from the picture of my son spitting up in action LOL) is that all of the patterned papers I used on this layout were from my scrap stash. I had been cleaning it out and then went to create this layout and I just started pulling pieces that I thought would work. I challenge you to try the same with your next layout or card. Just grab that stash of scraps you have and start putting pieces together - I bet you'll be amazed what you can come up with!


Next up on your Hip Hop journey is the wonderful *** AJ ***

Oh I feel for ya! Both of my girls were spitter-uppers! I thought I'd wear the washing machine out before they were out of diapers!!! And guess what ~ they got so used of changing clothes ~ that they still like to wear several outfits a day! But at least now they help with the laundry! LOL!
