A Holiday Hippity Hop And A Gift For One Of You!

Happy Hip Hop Thursday! Hope you are all having a great day! Me? I'm going to be running around like a crazy person for part of today! A little last minute shopping....still some prep needed for a classroom party....so many things so little time. Thank goodness it's Thursday! I am so looking forward to catching up with all of the Unity peeps at SCS! :)

...and how many shopping days till Christmas? Ah! Still working on it and so quickly running out of time!

I have three things for you guys today. First, I used Unity's Bitty Tags for a Christmas thank you. I need a ton of them! This one is super simple...my version of the inchie....


I used my copics to color the images and punched them and the dsp with my 1 inch circle punch. EPLS.

Now on to a layout. This is a photo that was taken a couple of summers ago while my hubby and I were in Florida at some business thing.....



The paper is Cosmo...the ribbon is PTI....sticky hearts from SU and chipboard pieces as well...some of which I colored with my copics. I used Unity's All About Me, Simple Pleasures, and the September KOTM.


Happy Holidays to You All!


My gift to one of you! Please leave a comment below to be included in a blog candy drawing for the Worn Music background stamp from Unity!


Good luck you guys!


Hope you all have a wonderful holiday season!



Merry Christmas!


Be sure and leave your comment by 12 midnight EST...I will choose a winner and post it to this thread in the morning! :)


Now hop on over to the talented Patter Cross. Check you all in a bit! :)
