hey Friends.. its HIP HOP day!


its Hip Hop time once again!
Lots of great stuff happening today..
make sure you stop by the
to start the hop at 10am CST and
then pop back over there at 11am CST
for all the DEALS of the day..
and there are ALOT.
wow! Angela has outdone herself once again!
****************************
Today we are focusing on FRIENDS. and MAY DAY....
so I'll start off with a couple pics of my BEST FRIEND and I..
she is in a category all her own.
I've been friends with her longer than anyone else.
nearly my whole life.
She is like no other and our friendship is like no other.
She knows everything that has ever happened in my life.
wow. that is amazing.
so is she. this is my sister. exactly 2 years, one week and one day
younger than me. :)
Brooke & Holly
now on to the projects...
i wanted to make a quick, cheap & easy little MAY BASKET..
and I saw this idea online..
to use a food box, cover it and make it cute.
take one PopTart box
(or the generic variety if you have a family of SIX like i do. :)

I covered it with patterned paper, then coated the
whole thing with Mod Podge
(just because i LOVE Mod Podge)
you don't have to if you don't like it.

then I stamped an image (Bubble Gum Tree)
decorated it a little bit.
Added some stickers & rub ons to the box
then punched holes on the sides
and added some ribbon to make a hanger.
all ready to fill with treats and deliver on May Day!
best friends
scrapbook layout featuring stamps from
March Kit of the Month {Simple Life}
and You + Me = Happy

thanks for stopping by! Have a thrilling Thursday!

now hop on over and check out the wonderfully talented..
