Hip Hoppin' with SMILES...

Hey everyone!

We are HIP-HOPPIN' in traditional (and FABULOUS!) UNITY style today with another awesome DT Blog Hop, chances to WIN fun prizes, chatter in the SCS forum, games, and did I mention PRIZES?

I'm so super excited to be a part of it again today. Every time I get together with these amazing ladies, whether it's lucky enough to be in person or just here in blog land, I smile :) LOVE these ladies and their amazing positivity, creativity, and friendships. WE ARE FREAKIN' UNITY! Have I mentioned that??? ;)

Today my card uses the somewhat-still-new (lol) CHA Release with Donna Downey, "Insightful Meadow". I ADORE this quote.... "Smiles are PROOF of everyday MIRACLES".... isn't that the truth? It's amazing to me when I think about what some people overcome with smiles on their faces, and also equally as heartwarming to know that there is so much to smile ABOUT in this life! LOVE that :)

I used this week's MOJO MONDAY sketch (MOJO 133) for my card. I really like the new "Linen Closet" DP from DCWV. Got it for super cheap at JoAnn and it has such a soft, sorta shabby-chic feel to it, right?

You can check out our SCS FORUM too because HIP HOP is happenin' with our OWN sketch challenge, too! Jimmi's got all kinds of fun cooked up there so don't delay! HIP HOP over to SCS, but dont forget to HOP on over to the UNITY blog where it ALL starts today...and also visit:

Jessica Diedrich <---you are here, peeps!
JIMMI MAYO is NEXT!
Thanks so much for joining me today and I'll be back tomorrow for FFF's, FWF's...all kinds of F's! heehee ;)

Live, Love, Laugh, and Smile....be proof of those EVERYDAY MIRACLES!
