A Happy Birthday & Catching Up

Happy Hip Hop, Peeps! :) I found my camera charger! Well, I found the charger to my old camera which I still haven't sold yet. Hey, it's better than my phone! While I was loading my photos to my computer I realized that I also had a zillion pictures on this camera from Christmas & even Halloween. Seriously?!? I'm really behind here. I'm playing catch up and might actually be gaining on the mountain of 'to-do's' but I was really surprised by the 'lost' photos. I will catch y'all up in just a bit with a few.

....but first, it's time for more Unity goodness. I used this weeks CPS sketch for this one. LOVE this super clean sketch. You can view it at the CPS blog here. Take a peek.....

This is one of my favorite birthday sets. It's from Ippity and called Party Hat Wishes. I love this super cute 'eye' chart with the special birthday message. I used some of my Jillibean Soup papers for this one as well as a bit of left-over ribbon that I had in my stash of stuff.

See the entire Ippity kit here.

Now it's time to head on over to Jessica's blog for more Unity goodness. :) Hope you all have a great weekend!

So now to a bit of what's been going on here while I've been away. I would share the Halloween pics but....there are none! Seriously?!? From me! This year we had friends join us for trick-or-treating. We had so much fun but I was so busy taking pics of everyone kiddo's were off gathering candy!....and I was so busy fixing the beverages and food that I missed everything! Luckily my friends took some for me but I haven't gotten them quite yet. Keeping my fingers crossed they show up! ;) Christmas was a blur. We made treats for everyone again. One of the things we tried this year was chocolate covered pretzel sticks....they were covered in soooo much more! ....caramel, chocolate, toffee...oh my! Here's a picture...

The first few I dipped in chocolate....not so visually appealling. I will leave off my 8 year olds description. ;)

Eventually we made our way to santa. I brought my camera. They will let you take pics as long as you purchase a package. Every year I end up with the greatest picture of some random 'santa' while my children look like they are posing for a future mug shot. This year I was determined to get at least ONE good one of my boys. ;) I like this one....

....our Minion Madness...... ;)

Hayden was quite excited about this one. ;) Maybe more excited than seeing santa. ;)

That's all I have for now. All of my Lacrosse pics from this weekend were also on this card but I will save those for later....or for a later scrapbook page.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend! :)

hip HOP Thanks

Happy hip Hop Thursday! I've got a quick little something for you today. I'm using the March KOTM for this one. I love the monthly Unity kits. They are so versatile. I love that one sheet of rubber can be used for so many different projects. Here's mine for this week....

Two things about this card. First, I really need to find my camera charger. This is the second time I have used my phone camera to take a picture. Yikes! So very sad! My son has his first Lacrosse scrimmage tomorrow so I will be tearing up my house searching for it....or heading to the camera store to purchase a replacement. ;) Second, I am in need of several thank you's so I wanted a CAS {or EPLS - easy peasy lemon squeezy} card that I could reproduce so that they could be sent out in a timely manner. Mission accomplished. Now if I could only find the postage stamps..... ;)

Check out the entire March '11 KOTM at the Unity site here.

That's it for me this week. Now it's time to head over to Leslie's blog....

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Home Again, Home Again

Happy Thursday! Remember me? My life has been a bit chaotic lately but I am feeling so lucky to be here with you and back to sharing what I love....Unity! :) Angela and the gang have been so very hard at it producing so many amazing images. I feel so truly blessed to have the opportunity to be back creating with them.

A little's been such a long time since I've posted that I honestly had a little bit of a time just finding the tab to 'create a new post' on my blog. You know your rusty if you can no longer find that little button! Hopefully you won't think my project for this week is, though. Take a peek.....

I used the March KOTM for this one. This is such an adorable kit. I have quite a few projects at different stages of completion but stopped to use this image since my three sons have birthdays over the next few weeks. My youngest turned four last week. I seriously cannot believe that my baby isn't a baby anymore! He's actually going to be playing baseball this season. It really is flying by.

Ok....back to the project....the paper for this one is from Jillibean Soup and the stamps are Unity's March {2011} KOTM.

You can see the entire kit at the Unity site here. It's a keeper!

Now let's get this party rolling by heading over to the oh so talented Leslie's blog....

Hope you are all doing well & I will post you soon!
