Ever Have One of Those Days???

Happy Hip Hop Thursday! Changes are coming to Unity & I can't wait to find out more! :) But... for now, I'm enjoying this last blog hop showcasing some Sneak Peeks of September's Kit of the Month! And let me tell you... you're going to LOVE this kit! (doing the happy dance, clapping my hands). I always love the day when the new kits are revealed! Just when I think I have a favorite, a new kit comes out and I love it even more. (My husband should feel privileged b/c I've stuck with him for over 10 years & not replaced him yet.)

One of my favorite images in September's kit is this crazy rag doll. LOL! And the sentiment is perfect! You know how there are those stamps that you like... but can't really see yourself utilizing? Well... I'm pretty positive that I know several people who could use a card like this. ;)

I scanned the image and printed it out on Claudine Hellmuth's Sticky Back Canvas. (I've found that this technique gives a much clearer impression! And... printer ink works perfectly with Copics!) Her eyes are coated with Matte glaze Accents by Ranger. The paper is by Sassafras... and yes - that is yet another piece of denim from my son's old jeans that I used to mat my main image onto. :)

Would you like to see more? Then Hop on over to one of THE sweetest girls in cyberspace!
