A hip hop farewell!

Well folks....the end has come! Hip Hop is in due for a make over and one is a coming! I know some agree, and some are saddened...but you know Angela works! Change is a good thing!


This last hip hop is around the kom- I used my August kit- too many fun images I haven't had a chance to ink up still!! I love this bird and sentiment combo-

And the colors on this card make me happy- flowers are from August, sentiment is from July.

make sure to head on over to Robyn's blog next!!


****Katherine S....Shoot me an email- you are the proud winner of some PRISM paper!****

enjoy the rest of your summer- we are heading to the beach for one last beach before school starts next week- Pin It Now!

Gotta love it, AJ...even with so many other colours in your cards, you stillfind a place for kraft! I think you chose 2 of my favourite images from the KOTM this time. And that bird totally matches your blog! Thanks for putting up with me a year ago when I was such a newbie - and for still putting up with me today.

I've not known about Unity for quite a year, but I'm sure going to miss Hip Hop Thursday. It was so much fun seeing some of the Unity gang at the two hour make and take at CHA--including you. Keep up the inspiration in whatever comes next. I enjoy your ideas and talent.

And I guess in a way we are seeing Unity do just that!
