So PRIM and Proper

I knew the moment that I saw her...so prim and proper in her black hat and pigtails...that I wanted to turn her into the sweetest 'lil mini album EV-ER!  Of course I adore anything My Mind's Eye and the Mischievous collection was no exception.  I had also purchased the Haunted collection...so I thought, what the heck!  Combine the two looks together and HOCUS POCUS...you have Prim-Goth :)
So here she is...kind of a Raggedy Ann of witches
Following pages include cute Halloween notions, fun stamped images and places to journal

I have her listed at Dot & Whimsy as we speak.  With the holidays quickly approaching, I'm selling things (especially mini albums) pretty quickly...so if you love her, don't wait long ♥
Now, what to do next?  Ah yes, I have the other new collection from MME...12 Days of Christmas.  It is jolly and bright in cheery colors of turquoise, spring green, bright red and a dusty pink...I love this color combo and buy it up anytime I see it.

Today is WORLD APPRECIATION DAY!  We're celebrating over at The Nook forum with a card challenge.  These ladies can do some amazing things with cards!

Well, today is the last day to get your submission in for the Little Yellow Bicycle Guest DT Call!  Yep, I sent mine in...I know it's a long-shot, but I couldn't resist.  My fellow Paper Issues CT member, Lowri, was featured this last month with her adorable altered pencil container.  Good luck to those who've applied!

Off to get the girl from school, sit at Zach's football practice, take Syd to dance, sit at Tyler's football practice and then pick Syd up from dance...whew, glad they're all within a 2 mile radius LOL
Be back soon!

Seasons Givings Blog Hop 2020

Welcome and Happy New Year!
Once again I am very excited to be participating in the "SEASONS GIVINGS BLOG HOP" Each blog that you visit along the way will offer a unique giveaway, so don't miss a single stop and invite your friends to hop along too!
♥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.
