Special Pre-Thanksgiving Hip Hop with Unity!

It's 24 hours until Thanksgiving--but Hip Hop with Unity is right now!!! That's right, we are hip hoppin' through Wednesday this week and Angela is certainly not shorting you on her usual super deal madness--check it out and get a jump start on black Friday!
This week, the design team focused on holiday gifts and handmade crafts to inspire you. If you are doing the blog hop, then you already have seen what fabulous stuff Laura had for you.
I decided to create some holiday wrapping from a brown grocery bag--hey, I'm an Eco Chic, lol! I cut out a large portion of the bag, trying to avoid the most prominent folds so it would be as flat as possible. I then stamped "Joy" and the Poinsettia from Bitty Christmas, then colored in each poinsettia, touching up with white gel pen for an extra pop. Voila--custom wrapping paper that is eco friendly and doesn't cost a cent! Yay!

I also dressed up my mini bread loaves with none other than "Lovin From The Oven"---is there another set that could be more perfect for home baked goods?!....I don't think so! ;)



Now, hop on over to Wendy's blog and be dazzled with her creations! We are partying all day and night (as usual) over in the SCS Unity forum, so come by in between making pies--it's the only way to win the loads of free stamps that Angela is letting her DT give away today!!! For all my American friends, I wish you a Thanksgiving filled with joy and happiness.
