Hip Hop.. if only..


Happy Thursday Hip Hoppers!!

Hope you all are having a great day, I can't believe it is September already... what is up with that??.. time seems to be flying by so fast. I think with such a hot summer it is going to be nice for this weather to cool down a little.. This week has been so hot.. yesterday the kids and Roger were in the pool, trying to cooling off..
If it is another hot one.. I think I will be joining them today!!

This week I went to Michael's and got a great border butterfly punch by EK Success, I love those 40% off sales!!.
I just love anything with butterflies on it and this one is just fabulous.
gotta love new toys.

I used it on my layout today, with the Dots for Sure stamp.


if only

using some of the stamps from Life Is The Journey , Dots For Sure and the wonderful Hip Hop sketch HHSC23.

I love taking a card sketch and making a layout. Check out the sketch below.



Here are some of the details up close.. this is the little butterfly pieces left over once you have punched the border.. amazing ! I know this punch will be used a lot. Don't you think it looks great with the Dots for Sure stamp too.


A little about the layout, these were photo's taken of Sydney at a baseball game 2 weeks ago.. I love getting close up shots of her fooling around and I just love looking at those big brown eyes. The"if only" stamp was perfect for what I wanted to say on my layout.
She is growing up way to fast for me.

So if you are in the mood for trying any of the sketches on a layout, go for it.. the challenge is always for both. It is always great to have these sketch's on hand. Instant inspiration!

You will be seeing me do more of these on Hip Hop!!
Now it is time to check out Eva and see what she has been up to and of course her wonderful Hip Hop creation!!
Hope you all have a great day.. and see you in the chit chat area in the Unity Forum over at splitcoaststampers!!


Hugs,
Angie
