Can I Get A HIP HOP?!!!

UPDATED 10:40pm 8/14- Thank You to all who entered! The winner was picked by random number generator and was #29, Jackie Pedro! I hope you had fun at the Unity Blog Hop and will come back next week for another fabulous Hip Hop Unity Thursday!

It's our first official HIP HOP Thursday over at Unity Stamp Co.! What exactly is that, you ask? Well, how does a ton of Unity inspiration plus free giveaways all day in the SCS Unity forum, plus blog candy strike you? Oh, you like that?--I thought so!

Ever made your own patterned tissue paper? It's fun! And you can customize it with your Unity's stamp for a variety of looks! Here, I used the funky fresh set called Love Is Toxic, which is discounted right now from $15 to $10, wow!!! I painted a small terracotta pot in the Unity company colors and tucked a yummy bag of chocoate treats inside for a sweet little gift. Visit The Unity Stamp Co. blog for Angela's post on all the details! She's offering super specials, new singles and always has a surprise up her pretty little sleeve! She will be giving away even more free stuff all day in the SplitCoastStamper's Unity Forum on the HIP HOP THURSDAY thread!
And if you are here, then you made it to the END OF THE UNITY HIP HOP LINE! Congrats!!! Leave your comment on the post for your chance to win The awesome Unity kit Good Times!
