All You Need...

...is HIP HOP!   with UNITY!  AND, a giveaway...but we'll get to that in a sec :)

It's Thursday and time for another FUN filled day of hip hopping with UNITY!   I have LOTS of fun stuff to share...but first thing's first, congrats to SHERI aka Papercrafty!  YOU win the Crazy for Daisies set from my blog giveway LAST week for Hip Hop!  Again, I'm so sorry about the delay!

I have ANOTHER blog candy/giveaway today-can I get a louder HIP HOP???   ONE lucky commenter today will WIN the adorable SPRING UNITY set!  You have until 11:59pm CST tonight to comment and I pretty please promise I will post the winner tomorrow w/ my Farm Fresh Friday post!

Today I have a card for you using the DARLING Kit of the Month for August-"ALL YOU NEED":

The "Love" sentiment and the add-ons really made me smile and I just couldn't wait to put something together with the "LOVE THIS LIFE" sentiment....because well, yanno...I really DO.

I used that big yummy Prima and some October Afternoon DP to finish off this fun card-not my 'normal' style (whatever that may be, lol) but I think I LOVE it, speaking of LOVE :)

Oh, and today's Hip Hop Sketch Challenge as my inspiration:

Did you guys know that in addition to the weekly "Unity Addicts" challenges on Wednesdays that there is a HIP HOP sketch challenge on Thursdays?  You can enter to win prizes for BOTH these challenges weekly by submitting your cards!

Be sure to stop by the UNITY BLOG first for a WONDERFUL tutorial and to read Ang's awesome post, and then it's time to HOP!  It all takes place on our SCS Forum, just like our HIP HOP chat today beginning at 10am!  I've got a sicky home today, so I'll be popping in and out to chat w/ some of my favorite peeps!  Speaking of which, be sure to stop by the beautiful and talented JIMMI next!

Have a WONDERFUL day, all...LOVE this LIFE...and LOVE some of these words of wisdom I stumbled upon recently...and fell in LOVE with:

"The best day of your LIFE is the one on which you decide your life is your own. No apologies or excuses. No one to lean on, rely on, or blame. The gift is yours - it is an amazing journey - and you alone are responsible for the quality of it. This is the day your life really begins..."  ~Bob Moawad


"You will never be happy if you continue to search for what happiness consists of.  You will never live if you are looking for the meaning of life..." ~Albert Camus

..and about LOVING LIFE...this really struck me....love this one:  "I say to my child, I will explain to you as much of life as I can, but you must remember that there is a part of life for which YOU are the explanation.  ~Robert Brault
