And a hearty WELCOME to all of you on this Hip Hop thursday for February 26.

You have arrived at the last stop of the hop and I have the candy! I have the candy! YIPPEE!!!!

If you haven't joined me from Laura's blog, start at Angela's blog and do the blog hop and come back to me for your chance to win the blog candy...

This week we're all about joy, celebrating the release of our new stamp Feel the Joy from Lindsay Spencer. What are 5 things that bring you joy??

For me, its easy...

1) my DH and my kids
2) making something
3) the beach
4) a good book
5) a hot bath

On to the candy. Enter your comment here and when I get home from work tonight, I'll randomly pick a winner for the blog candy for this week - the Time for Travel set, a super super versatile set that is perfect for both cards and for layouts....

This layout documents the chicada serenade that would arrive every day at dusk as we walked back to our hotel in Tokyo



I also made a card very loosely inspired by the sketch this week at Splitcoast, SC217

I also got a chance to play with the fabby new February Kit of the Month Endings and Beginnings. I love making little scenes with my stamps and this set is perfect....


colors used: Limepool, Copenhagen Blue, Yellow Ochre, Mineral Orange, Sienna Brown. Ink for fawn stamp is Adirondack expresso.

Be sure to leave a comment for a chance to win the travel set!! Happy Thursday! Happy Hip Hop!!

I can relate to your Cicada seranade. We lived in Japan (Okinawa) for 4 years and there was a jungle in front and behind us and it was full of thousands of cicadas at certain times of the year. You lay-out is beautiful. I also like the Feb. kit a lot more since you talented girls have shown us the possibilities. Thank you.
