HIP HOPPIN into Thursday with a NEW SKETCH!...

Howdy, peeps!

Now that the initial excitment has worn off regarding the NEW Unity Challenge (missed it?  Click HERE for the deets), let's not forget that today is HIP HOP THURSDAY and what does that mean?

Well, not only will hopefully we run into some of you on the Unity SCS forum, but it's time for a BRAND NEW SKETCH CHALLENGE!  Here is this week's sketch:

I LOVE having a sketch challenge as an awesome jumping off point for creativity.  Have you guys been PLAYING in the weekly challenge?  There are PRIZES each week and Jimmi does an AWESOME job keeping it all together HERE :)


I used the UBER adorable new Itty Bitty stamp, "I'm Here" for today's sketch and added some fun buttons and a touch of ribbon to the layout.  I am trying to use up some spare patterned papers that I've had laying around FOREVER before I even am tempted to get anything new (HELLO new Echo Park, basic Grey, Crate and Sassafrass?!?!  What's a designer to DO?!  lol).   I really like the colors on this one :)  Hope you do, too!
Next Blog

Well, make sure you stop by my girl Jimmi's blog next to see what she made for today's HIP HOP Thursday and be sure to visit the UNITY Blog to see what the dealio is for today!  Thanks so much for stopping by...and I'm sorry if I've been a bad bloggin' buddy!  I have like 700 posts in my reader but I plan to get to you!   Between CHA madness and coming home sick for a week it's just been a wee bit crazy!  I appreciate all your support!  MWAH!
