It's a Happy Hip Hop Thursday!

Even the continuous down pouring of rain today can't dampen my spirits! I have finally had a decent enough day at work on a Thursday to allow me enough time to play along with today's Hip Hop Festivities over at the Unity Blog!

If you want to be inspired by some great DT gals, just start over at the Unity Blog and hop your way around. Today's theme is Heroes! You won't be disappointed!

Today I have gotten two projects completed for the Hip Hop Challenges!

The first challenge is called Oh My Word!

We were supposed to make the sentiment on our project be the highlight.

This is a luggage tag! I found the faux leather tags in the Dollar Bin at Michael's. The Unity stamps I used were the "Happiness is a way of travel" quote from the August 08 KOM. It is the perfect sentiment to go along with a travel item!

I really like how it came out... I made two of them to go with the wonderful luggage that my best friend Tiffani gave me for my birthday last year. This is the luggage that I honeymooned with. Having these tags on my luggage is going to make it easy to spot it on the luggage carousel at the airport.

Here they are on my actual luggage pieces...

The second challenge is called Oh My Stars!!

The outside says Shine... then the inside says... Like the Star that You Are!
For this project we had to make something using Unity images and it had to have a star on it. The Distressed Star from the Jan 09 KOM is the only Unity star image I had. I paired it with the Shine sentiment from the April 09 KOM. I also added some little background stars that are from the Little Sprout set.

The sketch for this card is from SCS Sketch Challenge from yesterday (SC229). I hope that you can see the glimmer that it has. Here is a closeup of the stars that I embossed in glitter embossing powder.

Well that will do it for today! I hope to have another Unity post tomorrow to share with you for the Hip Hop Hangover!! Don't forget to go Hip Hopping with Unity today and also if you like the Unity stamps you have been seeing me use, you might want to take advantage of the 30% off sale they are having right now on the Unity website!

Have a great night and may your bucket overflow with dry clothes and umbrellas!!

Great idea for the luggage tags! HOWEVER, with shout out luggage like yours you really don't need the tags to find them. :-) Now, my black suitcase-just-like-everyone-elses-on-wheels needs tags like that!
