Hip Hop keeps getting better!

Every week I look forward to Hip Hop and the excitement that Angela has hiding up her sleeves! Well this week she really knocked it out of the ball park with "My Unity Place"! Have you been there yet? You just HAVE to come join, we are planning some FUN things over there! Unity is not leaving Splitcoast, My Unity Place is just another fun hangout for all of us Unity Fans!
I have a few fun KOM projects to share with you today:) Guess what? I SCRAPPED! I KNOW! See, I am always so proud of myself when I do, I don't know why I don't scrap more often! I guess I'm lazy, it takes so much longer than a card, lol! Well, I sure plan on trying to scrap at least 3 layouts a month. We'll see how that goes!
Here's my layout:
That's a picture of my friend, her hubs, and their little guy Rojo when he was born a couple years ago. I'm making her an album, but this one is going to be framed:) The title was made with my Heidi Swapp Masks, those things are SO fun and some Ranger Paint Dabber paint in black! The dp is by K&Co. You can see some of my beloved April KOM stamps on here can't you? I used the frame, the scalloped sentiment, the floral block and some leaves stamped on the dp. I love this layout and can't wait to find a nice sophisticated black frame for it!
Next up is a card I made using this weeks sketch on SCS!
That little bird stamp is just so dang cute! The "Different Dreams" background stamp and the sentiment from the March KOM fit perfectly, wouldn't you say?;)
Last up is my card for the first My Unity Place sketch challenge! Come on over and see it HERE...
I used that floral butterfly block from the April KOM again. I made that dp using Alcohol Inks by Ranger! I have really been practicing lately, I'm loving all the fun distress techniques I've been reading about so I went and bought a bunch of Tim Holtz goodies from Eclectic Paperie (AMAZING customer service here folks, I cannot say enough about these sweet girls!) Expect to see more Distressing here at the ole' blog;)
Well, I'm going to send you on your way to finish up the Hop! Go see my fabulous friend....
