Hip Hop Thursday!

Hi Everyone! Welcome to another amazing week of Hip Hop with Unity Stamp Company. As always, be sure to start your blog hop over on the Unity blog with Angela and then just follow along from there.

This week I have a layout for you that I created using an image from the June Kit of the Month. Love this kit so much! If you haven't checked out the kit of the month from Unity yet be sure to do so especially since if you sign up this month you get an amazing stamp set called "Bevvy of Butterflies" with your purchase. Click the link for the June Kit of the Month above to check it out - it's gorgeous!


I snapped this photo of this happy little bee hard at work in the wildflower garden I have in my backyard. Isn't he cute? I kept this layout really simple and worked with just three colors - lavender, green, and white - to keep the focus on my photo.


I used this great quote image from the June Kit of the Month stamped in olive green chalk ink along with some fun felt flowers and pearls from Zva Creative for my embellishments.

And since this week is about the fathers in our lives I also created this fun card for my hubby who is the ultimate grill master! Move over Bobby Flay you've got nothin' on my hubby! LOL


I used an image from the brand spankin' new set Retro BBQ along with some Cosmo Cricket papers from their Lil Man collection and some fun orange Stickles for the flames from the grill.

And since I am the last stop on your Hip Hop journey you now have a chance to win the adorable Little Me set pictured below. Just leave me a comment for a chance to be entered in this random drawing. I'll announce the winner sometime after 9pm EST tonight in the Unity forum on SCS!
