A Week?

It's really been a week since I've posted?  Wow!  Just proof that summer is flying by!
I'm in the midst of getting my Design/ Creative Team projects completed before heading out to Alabama on Friday...look out beach, here comes a really white girl :)  Our friends poke fun and literally call me 'white girl', but I don't care.  Being fair-skinned has it's advantages and disadvantages...just seems like there are a lot more disadvantages LOL.  A couple of years ago I went to a Beauti-Control party and the consultant did the 'black light' test.  I was amazed to see the number of ladies with large areas of green splotches (i.e. sun damage) all over their faces.  When she did mine?  A couple of small spots where zits ha!  Hopefully when I'm 80 I'll look the meantime, I can deal with the jokes and grief.

In the past two days I've received my July Design Team kits from Back Porch Memories and Your Scrapbook Stash.  Oh. My. Goody-ness.  
I spent the entire day yesterday creating away.  Here is just a little-bitty sneak peek of what I did with the BPM July SOLO Kit
 The Design Team's projects go live on July 10th, so I will share more after that time :)  Sign-up for this kit is total Y-U-M.

I completed another card for I Heart {Ippity} too!
Again, I am working with New Season, New Wonder for the entire month of July.  These are pre-cut, unmounted rubber re-positionable stamps.  You can order these directly from Heather, our Unity Stamp Chick (click link above).  
How fun is this?!?  To embellish the stamped image, I added letter stickers and gave them a little detail by adding some stitching at the top.  I also used a satin stitch of brown floss for the stem and finally added a cut-out leaf.  I simply L-O-V-E the way it turned out ♥

I have a couple of more projects to share, but I'm waiting to see if Paper Crafts is interested in them first.
Never submitted anything ever to a magazine, but I thought I'd try it. Nothing like crafting Valentine's in June.
Not a bad idea actually...which reminds me that it's about time to start on those Christmas crafts!

See you all in a day or two

♥A little about me♥  I'm currently designing for Doodlebug Design and Scrapbook Adhesives and have had the honor of serving on 20+ manufacturers or retailer  design teams over the years!  When I'm not working as a school administrative assistant, you can almost  always find me crafting cuteness for my Etsy Shop: Dot & Whimsy :) Aside from paper-crafting, I also enjoy making jewelry, cross-stitch, embroidery,  home decorating, reading and watching reality TV. But enough about little 'ole me...let's get on to the give-a-way!
With Valentine's Day right around the corner, I set out to find the perfect curation  of all things "red" and "love" in my stash.  The end result is this sweet ♥LOV…

A SN@P December Daily

**For the UNITY BLOG HOP, click --HERE--**

Oh, December Daily, how do I love thee! Isn't this just the greatest idea, ever?  (scrapbooking wise, anyway) Welcome to my contribution to the  SIMPLE STORIES  DECEMBER DAILY BLOG HOP I'm so glad that you're joining us...I can't wait to hop around myself and see how the girls have decorated their SN@P Albums December Daily style :)
**You should be arriving here from Rebecca Keppel's Blog**
I have quite a few photos to share, so I'll leave most of them in a  smaller size.  Just click on each one to enlarge.
My vision for the album was to mix 'n match  Handmade Holiday, SN@P and Year.O.Graphy I wanted bright colors mixed in with more shabby-distressed look that Simple Stories is known for.    For the cover, I took a bright Turquoise Dot SN@P paper and a strip from Year.O.Graphy and stitched them together.  The title is a compilation of  sevearl SN@P sticker elements.
