Ain't School Cool?

My kids have been back in full swing for three weeks now;  hard to believe that the first six weeks is half-way over...whew!  They're all the "big man (or girl) on campus" this year...a Senior, 8th-grader and 4th-grader.  Big.  One afternoon after picking Syd up, she comments on a girl walking along the sidewalk..."look at that cute little 1st grader"  She talks so big, as though she isn't cute or little herself anymore :)
Okay, ya'll know that I got some fabulous loot from Your Scrapbook Stash last week!  I finished my first project with the Fancy Pants' OFF TO SCHOOL line today.  It went together pretty quickly and was a lot of fun to make.  In my stash, was an acrylic sheet that has the alphabet in brown flocking from top to bottom.  I thought "how cool to use this in between the acrylic albums of old."  So, I went to cutting!  I actually machine stitched the "School is Cool" sticker on the front
Then, I grabbed a Maya Road scalloped chipboard album (from my stash) and cut the sheets (with an X-Acto knife) into different lengths to create a staggered look
Here are the following pages for you to enjoy
 I'll be back to list a couple of other projects tomorrow!
My Scrapbook Nook will be announcing their new Design Team tomorrow as well...good luck to all of the ladies trying will be an amazing team ♥

♥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 :)

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.
