Back and Forth

So one day I'm working on a Halloween project and the next day a Christmas project...back and forth and back and forth!  I pulled out a sheet of Bryce and Madeline Halloween stickers that I had purchased a long time ago...thought about giving them to my daughter and then decided 'no way, these are too cute not to put on an album'  But don't feel sorry for Sydnee...she gets plenty of loot!
You can find more photos of this 'lil cutie over at my Dot & Whimsy shop at Etsy :)
And because I'm so far behind on blogging, I haven't shared my other latest album!  I tell ya, I had a toothache after making this is just drenched in sweet candy goodness ♥
One of my wonderful repeat customers has already picked this up for her collection...along with some of my SWEETHEART (bright red, soft pink and creme) crepe paper fringe...her box looked liked Candy Land itself!  She'll be so happy :)

Today is Wednesday Wowsers over at I Heart Ippity blog!  There are always lots of beautiful creations made with Ippity (Unity) brand Heather has tons of stock on hand for purchase.  
Here is my latest card using {The Man} Collection
Super, super quick and easy using my Sizzix die to create the chipboard frame.  I then distressed it with walnut ink, spritzed with a little gold Smooch Spray.  For the shirt, after stamping and cutting it out, I applied it to the card using foam dots.  I then stamped another image and cut the tie out; added it with pop dots. Of course, a piece of paper can't get away from me without being stitched on hee hee hee hee

This is the news from Little Yellow may remember in my last post that I mentioned submitting some stuff...well...

♥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.
