Where do I start, peeps? Today is a VERY special Hip Hop Thursday for all of us with UNITY! We have a brand new Challenge theme, prizes, giveways and NEW RELEASES to commemorate the new WEBSITE launch, and the WINNERS of the WCMD Challenges are being announced, including the GRAND prize winner on the UNITY Blog-that person will win the Kit of the Month for a YEAR!!!
Seriously-the excitement is SWIRLING!
Ok, so first and foremost, congrats to HEREIGOAGAIN! You are the winner of my WCMD Challenge which was "Soarin' into World Cardmaking Day: Create a card that soars using clouds, hot air balloons, BIRDS, butterflies, planes, clouds, and the like :) I was SO excited to see how many people played my challenge and I'm really excited that that SCS Gallery is just bursting w/ WCMD delights! Make sure you stop by and check out ALL the galleries if you haven't so far!
Today's Hip Hop theme is "Giving Thanks"-to create projects with a Grateful/thankful theme. I used the new October KOTM and a stamp from the Sept. kit as well to create a few projects for today's theme.
NOTHING makes me more grateful than my family. I look around every day and it's almost as if each day I'm given a pair of NEW eyes to see each individual person in my family with a new appreciation and in a new light. I know I've said this before, but it's hard to convey how much my children absolutely AMAZE me every day with their words, actions, insights and those sweet, tender moments of absolute, unconditional LOVE. The way that through adversity, even perhaps when he should be in a bad mood because of a few unavoidable road blocks here and there , my husband actually loves me MORE and SHOWS love more because he's so grateful for me in return. Is there any one of us that can truly describe what kind of circular, never-ending miracle a truly close family is? I think about them and and I think about my parents and brothers and sister and our awesome network of extended family and friends and it really makes me smile. FAMILY is everything, and all I know is that I am a VERY lucky girl, one who will never be more thankful for these beautiful people:
I got on a roll w/ the new Pyrus paper from Basic Grey and some cute coordinating 3D stickers so the project didn't stop there w/ my layout :) I also made a quick card and a few bookmarks using some cork, ribbon, and some cute Basic Grey flowers:
So, are you gonna come chat w/ us today? The partay starts at 10am CST on our SCS Forum and we hope you'll come by! Angela surpised us ALL last night when she announced some BRAND NEW RELEASES as well, so be sure to check out all that's going on today! TONS of fun in store!
For now, head over to Jimmi's blog-I know her mojo has been rockin' this week so I can't wait to see what she's got for us, too ;)
Love and happiness to all of you wonderful Hip Hoppers! See you tomorrow for FFF!
"Other things may change us...but we BEGIN and END with FAMILY..."
