Hip Hop July 22, 2010

Hello everyone! Happy thursday this July 22th!!  Welcome to Unity's Hip Hop!!  Its been tough busy week and all I can say is I am so glad its almost friday!!! 

Today, I'm playing with the July Kit of the Month and the gorgeous Graphic 45 paper, this time, the On The Boardwalk collection.

Its kind of hard to see, but the center of the flower is this cool flock/glitter stuff I bought at the stamping convention called sparkly fluff by craft lounge.  SOOO cute (and the first flock item that I have successfully used.  Past attempts were utter disasters!  But with the Sakura quickie glue pen (also a craft lounge recommendation), it was easy peasy....

So leave me a comment about what new product you've discovered lately that you just LOVE?  and you can win the Lollipop Tree You and Me kit

Now hop on over to Natalie's blog:

Next Blog

Enjoy your thursday!

EDITED: Hip Hop Winner is

I'm a newcomer to this craft so I'm still building basic supplies. I recently bought a corner rounder that flips to make two different sized curves (Friskars). Duh, took me a while to get the hang of it. I'm learning. Love your inspiration.
