Christmas in July!

It's nice to dream of a Winter Wonderland when we're in the midst of a relentless summer heat. Call me crazy, but yes, I have my Christmas tunes playing on Pandora ♪♫ fa-la-la-la-la ♪♫ And not just any ole Christmas tunes...we're talking Bing, Nat and Frank...oh yea-uh!  Nothing more soothing to the fretted soul than some bea-u-ti-ful music ♥
To go along with my holly-jolly mood, I have been toiling away at the paper-crafting since Wednesday...lucky to be me hehehe!  I did have to take a detour yesterday afternoon for the yearly eye exam and (blech) trip to Wal-Mart. It's been well over a month since I've filled the buggy to the top, but frequent trips to the local Dollar General and grocery store just weren't cuttin' it anymore...you know how that is.  

Here are a couple of layouts that I've gotten done this week:
{Track Star}  Features handmade ribbon flowers and hand-cut clouds...so happy!

{My Girl}  I'm really likin' the royal blue, baby pink and bright orange!


And my newest card creation...thinking that I may add this (as well as some of my other cards) to my Etsy shop...it's gettin' bare over there :)

♥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.
