Hey Stella...

And Rose!  I love these collections from My Mind's Eye and I really love it when I can get a deal from Scrapbook Steals. When I opened the kit and saw the girly die-cuts, I knew that I wanted to use the purse shaped chipboard to create an album.  I listed this at Etsy and it sold within just a couple of hours...I had to share it though!
School starts up tomorrow!  The whole family piled into the vehicle yesterday to partake in the Tax Free weekend.  We did pretty good.  Four pair of jeans, four t-shirts, two pair of underwear and a pair of Nike's for under $200.  The summer has just flown by, but I'm ready to get back on a normal schedule.  No more staying up late and sleepin' in :)
Have a great 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…

A SN@P December Daily

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.
