A Hippity Hop!

Can you believe this is the 10th week of Hip Hop! How much do you love hopping through your Thursday!? I LOVE hip HOP Thursday! So if you are just starting your hop here be sure and head over to Angela's blog. There you will find a list of all of today's Unity specials.


I pulled out a couple of my favorites for today. First, one from Simple Pleasures. This is one of my favorite cakes ever!

I made this one for a couple of challenges over at SCS...this weeks color challenge and this weeks sketch challenge.


Now for another favorite of mine...the Growing in Unity tree. Cool note...you can now buy this tree all on it's own...I'm partial to the kit but, hey, it's an option...gotta love options! :)


A quick blast from the past....remember when I did this one.....

Not sure what my deal is with this tree! I DO totally see that this could be such a romantic tree. The kit is TOTALLY romantic! Great for anniversaries and whatnot. For some reason I also see the 'spooky' side of this tree and can't help but go with it! lol! So here's the latest.....

For this one I took a piece of glossy card stock and then painted it with watered down black acrylic paint. Then I stamped it with my tree and dried it with my heat tool...because I am toooooo impatient to wait! Then I sanded it a bit. It's pretty easy actually.

That's it for me! Now it's time to head over to Sarah Martinez. Have fun with the rest of the hop!

Post you soon! :)

That's a very versatile tree stamp, which is why you can make such different projects with it. I actually really like what you've done so far. The eyes in the tree - very cool!!

TFS!
