Unity Hip Hop Hangover is here!

Hip Hop Hangover

Wow, it was so fun to participate in Unity's Hip Hop yesterday! The blog hop had so so many great projects created by so so many talented designers! In fact, I loved the preview of some new sets, that I had to make a purchase (or two or three or...). You've got to go check out Unity...and the Kit of The Month is awesome (see my post before this one for my "Live Simply" card).

Here's my creation for the Unity "Thinks Spring" challenge, which was to make a "Spring" themed project. I won this stamp "It's Spring" from Unity Hip Hop a couple of weeks ago...can you believe I won that stamp?!!

Paper: SU Only Orange, Yoyo Yellow, Whisper White, Very Vanilla, DCWV DP

What a happy surprise...we just got back home from vacationing in California, and in my mail...the Unity Kit of The Month (KOTM): Simple Life!
This is my first KOTM and I just love it! I decided to take the Splitcoast Color Challenge and use this wonderful kit. Here is my creation for the challenge, which was to use Kiwi Kiss, Pretty in Pink, and Baja Breeze. Check out Unity March KOTM for yourself!

Hip Hop Thursday and New Unity Stamps!

Today is Hip Hop Thursday with Unity Stamps...woohoo! Okay, yes, I was so excited to get my new Unity stamps! Here is my first Unity card using the Beach Days and Sun Rays stamp set, below. I made this card for the SCS sketch challenge. I love these stamps and something tells me that I'm going to enjoy more of their stamps!

I watercolored some sand and then used micro beads to make it look like sand.
Thanks for looking!
