Moms Love HipHop!

... at least mine does! 

I am extremely lucky in that my mom loves papercrafts as much as I do and she plays along with us on Unity HipHop Thursdays...
I LOVE THAT!!

Today we are celebrating our mothers for Hip Hop, so I have a layout to share about my mom...

The journaling says, "I look at these photos of my mom and I when I was little and am always so startled by how young she was. But I love that she was (and still is) young because that has enabled us to grow into close friends as I have gotten older. She is truly my best friend and I love her as both my mom and my friend." ~Summer 1971

Supplies used:
*Unity Stamp Co. My Mother My Friend (title)
*Unity Stamp Co. Tiny Giggle Grove (trees)
*Unity Stamp Co. Birdie Inspiration (border swirls, bird, journaling frame)
*Unity Stamp Co. Tiny Trinity (words)
*Little Yellow Bicycle paper (green)
*Cosmo Cricket Jack's World paper 
*Martha Stewart border punch
*MM velvet ribbon
*watercolor pencils (for the bird stamp)
*StazOn Jet Black inkpad
*Marvy Uchida scallop punches
*Bazzill kraft

*****************
I also created a card. This card could be sent to your mother or any member of the family.
