Another Hip Hop Hangover

Hip Hop Hangover
I know, it's been a couple weeks since I've participated in the Hangover Hop. It's good to be back!

Unity has an awesome new kit aimed at Scrapbookers and it's available for pre-order this weekend. It's called Le Chic Vintage and you should definitely check it out. I think it's going to be great for collaged ATCs, too, so don't be surprised to see it prominently on this blog. Also, Unity has a whole bunch of journalling boxes and a few other stamps at a deep discount this weekend. We spent less that expected on van repairs, so I got to spend a little that I otherwise wouldn't have been able to - like on that pre-order!

So, what have I got this week? Last weekend was VSN - Virtual Stamp Night, for the uninitiated. I was lucky enough to hostess an hour, even though I was rather medicated and needed a little assistance from one of the organizers (thanks Cav!!) My challenge was Paper Lasagna. Each card needed a base (noodles) and at least one mat (meat or veggies). For each mat, the card needed a patterned paper layer (sauce) and an image (cheese). To top it off, since lasagna wouldn't be complete without some sort of seasoning, there needed to be at least one embellishment.

When I first posted the card, I'd forgotten the embellishments. Remember what I said about being medicated? Yeah...not only that, but I was unable to lift or bend, so everything had to be brought to me. It actually went very well, all things considered.
But you can't have the hostess not follow her own rules! So I went back and, many thanks to my youngest daughter who got the Prima flowers and the rhinestones for me, seasoned my lasagna. I think it also tied the colours together better.
If you want to see what's been taking all my time lately, check out my school blog. The top entry is only one of 3 projects I've been working on the past several weeks.
