Redo Saturday

Busy day yesterday!  The roofers were here at sun-up and had our old roof off and new one on by, I wish that I could move like that LOL  They did have to replace some of the decking around the chimney and boards on the facing, so all-in-all they were lightening fast.  We're hoping with the shingle upgrade and roof vent that we'll stay cooler and save some moolah in the meantime :)
 I decided to re-do the Elle's 6-2 Thursday Challenge.  You know when something doesn't grab you, and the original layout that I created just didn't grab me!  Here is the re-do and the one that I submitted for the challenge

The Red Robin received an invitation yesterday to be a sponsor for the Strawberry Swing Indie Craft Fair in Kansas City on July 10th.  I'll be sending some Ruffled Crepe Trim for them to decorate with!  I'm so excited to get some exposure in a non-Etsy environment :)
 If you're in the area, please check them out!

Also on July 9th & 10th, mark your calendars for the Lemonade & Layouts Crop at Absolutely Alter It Message Board (formerly Life Preserver's Club).  I've known most of these ladies for years, and I mean years.  We were chatting the other night about how long we've been together since I started the Life Preserver's Scrapbook Club in 2002!  Some of the very first Forum members have 2005 stamped on the date they has definitely flown by.  It's amazing to watch others' children grow up before your eyes...I mean, you don't necessarily notice how much your own kids grow, so it's really neat to step back into people's lives after a year or so and see the transformation!  I feel so lucky to have meet several of these ladies in person and I hope to do it again someday ♥

Okay, I'm off to Little Rock for a Fetal Monitoring class, which starts tomorrow through Tuesday.  I hate to leave my happy home and my craft room hahahaha, but duty calls, I guess.
See you all soon!

♥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.
