The Boss is Away, but We're Still Gonna Play! Happy Hip Hop!!!

Good morning to all you Hip-Hopping Peeps!!!

The boss is away on her way to California for the Craft and Hobby Show, but we are still going to have a fabulous hip hop so plan on dropping into the SCS forum today to play a bit with us all!


I have two projects to share with you today. This first one is using that gorgeous Valentine's kit that was released last week, Be Owl Mine, although I did steal the "i love you" out of one of the other new releases, Love Grows.


The inspiration challenge over on SCS this week was to be inspired by a Pottery Barn teen room and this is the one that inspired my card. Funnily enough, I had saved this image just the day before the challenge was issued as an inspiration piece for my Woodland Exercise. I still hope to create a woodland-styled card based on it too...hopefully today!

I used watercolor pencils to color all of the images and then just cut them out.

Supplies used:
*Unity Stamp Co. Be Owl Mine
*Unity Stamp Co. Love Grows
*October Afternoon paper (teal)
*Imaginisce paper (pink)
*watercolor pencils
*Zig Writer
*Marvy Uchida scallop oval punch
*cuttlebug embossing folder
*white cardstock
*Jet Black StazOn

**********************************

My second project today is a layout using today's new release, Time For Travel.

I have my computer set up so that the screen saver is random photos from my picture files. Yesterday morning, I walked into the room and one of these old photos from 2005 of DS and I visiting my alma mater, Texas Tech, showed up and I was inspired to print/scrapbook them. We had so much fun playing on campus that day.

Supplies used:
*Unity Stamp Co. Time for Travel
*Bazzill Swiss Dot embossed paper
*October Afternoon papers
*old dictionary paper
*Marvy Uchida punches
*buttons
*Martha Stewart border punch

I just LOVE the style of this set and if I remember correctly, this is another Angela (with some help from Brooke) designed kit!



Now head on over to Jimmi's blog to see what gorgeous things she has to share with you this week!
