Stash Sketch

It was my time to share a sketch at  Your Scrapbook Stash :)  As with the last sketch that I created, I scrapped my layout then I did the sketch...I know, I know...I did it a little backwards!
  I don't have any fancy software on my dino-of-a-computer, so I wing it with probably the oldest version of Picture It known to man;  it gets the job done though.
 My Sample "Just Add Water and Fins"
Your Scrapbook Stash Supplies:
Echo Park "Splash" patterned papers, sticker letters and accents
Velvet Trim
Misc Supplies:
Pop Dots
The two strips of paper outlined in ribbon are actually popped up with foam dots...looks much more interesting in person.  Plus, I accidentally deleted the original picture from my computer so I couldn't make any adjustments...sorry that it's blurry.  
I love these two pictures of my brother and nephew taken last Father's Day.  My brother is such a dork, but he owns it (much like I do) so it works LOL  Self-deprecation makes life easier to get through...if you can't laugh at yourself, then you have no business laughing at anyone else ;)
A side note: we had a fabulous turn-out for our Meet-The-Bears Night last night.  We went from 100º weather to low 80's after a little cool front blew was grand even though short-lived (right back at it today). The volleyball girls, cheerleaders, band, majorettes and JV/Varsity football players were all announced.  After a little 'scrimmage', cheerleading and band playing, the kids enjoyed watermelon and a homemade slip-n-slide :)  I can't believe that we're about to start a brand new school year!  I will have a Senior, 8th grader and 4th grader.  Football on Thursday nights, Friday nights and of course college Saturdays and Pro Sundays...oh and Monday night...ahhhhh! 
Next week at this time....I'll be the BIG 4-0.  I haven't given it much thought actually.  I'm just hoping that it doesn't 'strike' me all at once and I fall apart hehehe!  Some good friends are cooking for me tomorrow night...fillet Mignon, twice-baked potato casserole and white chocolate strawberry lucky am I?  :)
Enjoy the weekend, everyone!

♥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.
