Oh Baby! It's Hip Hop Time!

Today's Unity Blog Hop is 'baby' themed. There are fun new stamps & great specials going on... and a few fun & games along the way. We're all suppose to be posting our baby pictures, so I had to dig and find one out of the archives.

My dad loves to tell stories about how he lovingly called me 'Bubba'. You see... I've always loved to eat & THANK GOODNESS I was blessed with the 'tall' gene! My parents say that I weigh the same amount now as I did as a baby. My legs just grew. And... it might be hard to tell, but I had some pretty bad hair back in the day too. I hear that I wasn't taken out of the house without a bonnet on.... and since my head was a pretty good size, it was hard to find any that fit. It's amazing that I don't have issues after hearing these sweet stories all of my life. ;)

Here's another one. (See! I grew into that big noggin!) :)


BUT.... anyway - back to UNITY! :) Here are a couple of cards I made using their new baby sets: Tickled Pink & Bouncy Blue (click on pics to see details)
I used some super cute Cosmo Cricket Girl Friday paper & colored everything with Copic Markers. *Hint: If you airbrush your sky with Copic markers, you can easily create clouds by using a Colorless Blender! (Found this one out by trying to cover up a 'boo-boo') :)

Make sure to head over to Angela's blog to see all of the fun specials and games going on today. The Blog Hop begins there and you don't want to miss what she has in store! :)

From here... make your way over to my friend Laura's blog! I'm sure she was a beautiful baby! :)
