Happy Thursday Everyone..
Hip Hop here I am..
using the March SMAK kit of the month!!
I love this kit.. for many reasons.
you have so many wonderful Mixed Media textures in this kit..
and the heart.. is one I did.. but the overall kit is a must have!!
I also have a little personal story to tell
with my Layout for today..
I wanted to use this kit on a Scrapbooking layout.. and one of the sentiments
when read out loud I thought of these two wonderful people.
"Some people we never forget because, our lives have been forever changed by them"
Well since the very beginning of my stamping journey, it all started with Unity..
the friendly banter of HIP HOP and all the wonderful peeps chatting every Thursday..
for a stay at home mom.. it was a great way to keep friends in my kitchen
telling stories all day long.. it was the best part of my day, every Thursday
..oh not to mention the giveaways.. they are the most generous people I know!!
Best days ever!! HIP HOP!!
Then came an actual chance to guest design for Ippity by Unity..
well, I was so blessed to be a part of that team.. I hold these girls close to my heart.. it was fate..
Then came the day I needed to leave, but got to stay on an extra 3 months
I am thinking it must have been fate again.. blowing me a kiss!!
.. Finally after 6 months my time a guest designer was up, I was sad.. no joking ..
but then, one Saturday Morning I got an email from Angela
my hubby woke me up and told me to check my mail!!
I had to shake my head a couple of times... But, it was from Angela..
asking if I would like to stay on full time with Unity....
well I nearly jumped out of my bed.. hit the floor with delight
I was so thankful for the opportunity, cause I LOVE unity.... yes, that much!!.
Shortly after that I sent in some image designs to Angela just for her opinion ..
I had a dream one night and starting drawing .. and I actually liked with I drew!!
Well ,again she asked if I would like to be a Unity Artista on the trial basis..
that was a year ago.. I have loved every minute of my time.. and someone will have
to physically take Unity away from me.. cause I am never leaving.. haha
I feel truly blessed to be a part of UNITY, to get to know the people behind the company,
the designers and the wondeful caring staff in Spicer MI !!
I so admire them all,
but, knew deep down that it would be
more than just a crush on a stamp company... !!
Angela and Christian ..
they have made my dreams come true..
I will never, ever forget how much they have changed me creatively and as a person.
So , this is how this layout came to life..
and I wanted to document it..
I love these two... and the kick in the butt is ..
I have never met them.. but, they mean so much to me.
I think my daughter thinks they are an Aunt and Uncle that live far away..
because they are a part of our daily lives.
So.. haha there goes my personal story for you.. haha.. a TRUE story.. like the
SMAK kit of the month title.. haha.. I just saw that!!
see this is FATE.
yes ,I laugh at myself all the time!! having that moment right now!!
So if you have not gotten the SMAK kit of the month.. I am thinking this is a good month
to become a member.. the possibilities will be endless with this kit..
