Fun & Fabulous Friday

What a wonderful day!  I love it when I get right up in the morning and set to just makes the day go much smoother.  I don't know why, but I can be quite pessimistic about going to the grocery store;  I'll put it off until I can't put it off any longer.  Today, I went early.  When I go early, I beat the Friday crowd!  Plus I got the bank deposit made and graduation cards mailed...what a sense of accomplishment.  And I topped the day off by completing the latest sketch challenge from Creative Scrappers...whew!  

My take is somewhat different, but I really like the way it turned out.  
Patterned papers by October Afternoon and Studio Calico
Kraft paper by Studio Calico
Fabric Thicker Letters by American Crafts
Corrugated Alpha Letters by Making Memories
Wooden Buttons by Close To My Heart
Butterfly by K& Co
Font LB Kerri
Other: vintage crochet thread and punched butterflies
I revamped my Photobucket today too.  I made separate folders for Layouts, Dot & Whimsy Creations and later I will add ones for Cards, Altered Projects and The Red Robin.  Since most design team calls ask for an online Gallery, I figured what better time to get mine updated!  
I will be hosting a **GIVE-A-WAY** by drawing names from those who leave a comment on my blog...more info coming soon!
If you are a customer from Dot & Whimsy or The Red Robin, be sure to check back and leave a comment on the Give-A-Way won't be disappointed :)  
Have a FABULOUS Friday evening and WONDERFUL weekend!

♥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

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.
