Lookie Here

On the way to Tyler's football camp last weekend, the hubby and I stopped off at an antique shop along the way.  This is something we plan to do when retiring:  driving the RV across country and detouring at junk, antique and flea market shops whenever the urge strikes!  I'm a 'scanner' when I go junkin'...I don't pay too much attention to the furniture and larger items, but when I see a heap of old books, papers and sewing supplies, I go nuts (quietly though, I don't want to appear too eager).  Within a few minutes, I noticed this box of buttons.  No price, and I'm kinda afraid to ask.  The owner says "I'll take $10."  There are over 100 cards of vintage buttons and oodles of fabulous colors...can you say EXCITED?  :)
I also got an old wire locker basket for $5...perfect condition with just the right amount of rust LOL

♥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.
