What a BUSY, BUSY Wednesday!

Creeeaaakk...did you hear that?  It was the sound of my bones trying to remember how to stand after sitting all day.  Man, I've been busy since 8:00 A.M.  I finished a large order of "On The Fringe" crepe paper trim and made several BRAND NEW color schemes for Dot & Whimsy.  I know crafters and I know that crafters like to start on their Fall/Winter projects early :)  So, I made up these themes: 
♥Boo Parade:  orange, jet black and white
♥Frank In Tux: grape, spring green and white
♥Green-Eyed Monster: spring green, jet black and white
♥Autumn Leaves: orange, sunny yellow and brown
♥Turkey Day: orange, brown and cream
 And of course, since we haven't even started the Summer season yet, I also added:
♥Lemon Chiffon: sunny yellow, pale yellow and white
♥Pinata Party: blueberry, orange and spring green
♥Grand Old Flag: strawberry, royal blue and white
♥Bumble Bee: sunny yellow, jet black and white
♥Lady Bug: strawberry, jet black and white
Looks so cool on baskets, treat boxes and other projects!
I mentioned yesterday that I had some more news to share.  I am very excited that my "Inside & Out" layout of Sydnee and my great-nephew, Knox, awarded me with a Guest Designer spot at Back Porch Memories...such a nice group of ladies!  I'll be 'guesting' next month and am greatly anticipating my first BPM kit :) Come on over to the forum and join in on the chat if you get a chance. 

I completed this layout and card for a couple of challenges over at My Mind's Eye blog.  My Mind's Eye is in my TOP 3 favorite manus!  They never, ever cease to amaze me.  How they keep chunking out fabulous stuff year after year is completely beyond my comprehension...but I'm soooo glad that they do ♥  I fondly remember when they came out with Frame-Ups years and years ago...I've been hooked ever since.
"She's So Wonderful"
I've used My Mind's Eye "Lime Twist, Fine & Dandy and Quiet Contrary" patterned papers, die-cut and chipboard embellishments.  Foam letters by American Crafts, letters stickers by October Afternoon, baker's twine by Martha Stewart Crafts and brads by Basic Grey.
"Happy Birthday to you"
Almost every single element is from MME "Quite Contrary" Line;  buttons, tag and crochet thread are from my stash.
Well, it's almost time to call it a night!  
Have a wonderful rest-of-the-week

♥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…

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.
