It's all About the JoY...this Hip-Hop Day!!!

Today we are celebrating JoY for Hip-Hop!!!

So what brings you JoY in your life?

For me, it is the little things:

*when Kat learns a new word...
this week it is "kiss" which she insists on having from anyone as it's time to go night-night...
such a sweet little word coming out of her precious little mouth

*coffee...
I know, sad but true as I sit here typing this up in the early morning...
I REALLY receive JoY from my coffee on a daily basis

*my husband...
he makes me laugh on a daily basis with his quirky sense of humor...
definite JoY in my life thanks to him

*books/blogs/magazines....
I LOVE to read and be transported to another place...
in my life I can find huge amounts of JoY just by reading

*creating...
I find such JoY in creating...
it makes me feel complete, accomplished, and whole. I love this craft!
*********************

And now I just have one project for you today using the newest stamp...Feel the Joy. I think that this layout is complete, but I have to tell you all that I am itching to add to it. I was trying for a clean look on this and I think that I got it, but it just feels so flat and I am dying to messy it up some...LOL!

This is a photo that my SIL, Kara (Kara Bryant Photography), took of Kat last spring when we were home, so Kat is about 10 months old in this photo.

Supplies used:
*Unity Stamp Co. Feel the Joy
*Unity Stamp Co. Fun with Four Inches! Little Borders
*Unity Stamp Co. Mystical Swirl
*Scenic Route paper (yellow)
*Bo Bunny paper (yellow with red flowers)
*corner rounder
*Martha Stewart border punch
*StazOn jet black inkpad
*Bazzill


Now you need to continue on the HoP by heading over to AnneMarie's beautiful blog...
