And a Hip Hop in a Pear Tree

What is it about FRUIT stamps? They are such fun, aren't they? Who thought FRUIT would be trendy!!!? This little pear is one of my favorite stamps in Unity's July Kit of the Month. I PAIRED (peared. .. ha ha) it with some cheery October Afternoon paper, ribbon from Renaissance By Design, and a Scenic Route rub-on.
Below, is a cute little gift tag that I put together with my scraps. I think it's about 2x3in. Just a cute little something extra.
And how about that sweet starry July Incentive kit?? Here's a quick card using purple. . .yes, PURPLE. I can't EVER work with purple, but I thought maybe I could pull this off, as I try to use up a major stash of paper and cardstock!


Next week, I will be at CHA during Hip Hop, but never fear, I will schedule my post in advance (let's hope Blogger has worked out all its kinks!!!) and I will have lots of pictures to share after I get home!!!!
And now, hop hop hop over to the super talented ***Shemaine***, one of our fabulous July Guest Designers! Have a wonderful day!!!
