Thursday Unity Hip Hop Challenges

Hip Hop!

I didn't really get a chance to go online to Hip Hop with the girls today. :(
Just really hard to get on the computer during the day and by the time I get on at night, the challenges and chats are just about over. But I figured I can still Hip Hop and have fun this way.
Maybe once we settle into summer, I can participate during the day. :)

Ken graduated from Kindergarten today!
He was among 4 in his class to have perfect attendance but the only one to not have any tardies!!
I now have a first grader!!


I also have a wicked migraine tonight. Instead of staying up until the wee hours of the morning crafting, I think I will go to bed early for once. Unfortunately, this means no brand new cards to post tonight. Luckily, I happened to already have cards from a few months back that meet today's Hip Hop challenges! Oldies but goodies!

Before I post those, I do have a new project to share that I had worked on for Memories Live On, using a stamp from Unity's This is the Time set.
