Many things to share!

Today, my sweet hubby and I celebrate our 20th Anniversary!  I know you're saying "but, Shellye, you look way too young to have been married that long" hehehe (I was only 10 when I got married *wink*)  The time has definitely flown by...whew!  We're not novices at this marriage thing, that is for sure.  Good times and rough times, and we're a stronger couple now because of all of the times.  
♥ So, HAPPY ANNIVERSARY, Honey!  You are my rock and I Love You ♥
{#2 I'm a Stash Girl!}
I've had the badge up on my side-bar for a couple of days, but I haven't officially announced my new Design Team stint.  I'm so very, VERY happy to be a part of the July-December 2011 Your Scrapbook Stash Design Team...I'm a STASH GIRL :)  Lots and lots of fun and cool things that we'll be sharing in the upcoming months.  The thing that I love most about YSS, is the encouragement of all things paper...and I'm all about all things paper!  If you follow me at Etsy, you know how much I adore altering things and creating things from beautiful scrapbook papers♥ I personally invite you to follow the Your Scrapbook Stash BLOG, where all of the fun will be shared.  Also, sign up to be a Gallery Member!  I will keep everyone posted here with the latest happenings, challenges, etc.  In fact, for the rest of June you can use code JUNE15 and receive 15% off your entire order when you shop. Tons of great things marked as SALE items, so happy shopping ;) "Like" them on Facebook too...I see special offers just for FB franzzzz!

{ #3 Ally Scraps June Sketch}
I shared a couple of cards last week that I made using a single sketch from Ally Scraps...I'm so happy and honored to be the winner of their June Sketch Contest! I'll be putting the cute little "Beach Bum" paper pads from Fancy Pants to good use.
Thanks, Ally Scraps! 
I'll be working on a few Design Team projects over the next couple of days AND I'll try to sneak in an altered album to go up at Dot & Whimsy...I've had the design in my head for well over a week, but just haven't had the time to do anything with it. 
Also, my friends over at Absolutely Alter It are hosting a crop in a couple of weeks!  The girls are sure to have lots of creative challenges up their sleeves ;)
I've worked the last two nights, so lots to get done tonight before I turn in...see you all tomorrow!


  1. Your creations are beautiful! Congrats on being a stash girl! Can't wait to know u better :)

Welcome and Happy New Year!
Once again I am very excited to be participating in the "SEASONS GIVINGS BLOG HOP" Each blog that you visit along the way will offer a unique giveaway, so don't miss a single stop and invite your friends to hop along too!
♥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.
