Life Is Good...

...and here is the proof...
I love how the bright cottage colors dress up the distressed, but plain, chipboard album.  The papers by Echo Park/Bella Blvd are cheerful and celebrate the good things in life.  I used the last of my corrugated butterflies, so I must get more and soon!  Candy sweet...eye yummy-ness that makes my ♥ happy.

Wow, I really need to get my blog caught up with all of the card projects that I've created lately.  I will start listing some of them at my Etsy shop card box is over-flowing!

Created for one of My Scrapbook Nook's October CARDS Challenges
Bee Happy
Another card created for a challenge over at the Nook.  Part of the challenge was to use a hexagon shape, which is oh-so popular in design right now.

I'll be peddling again soon with Hello Fall by LYB.  I received a box full of goodies yesterday and I can't wait to dig in and come up with something super special for their blog readers :)  So many choices...I'm not sure what to do first! 
If I had to pick one thing that has been my favorite from both the Head of the Class and Hello Fall, I would have to go with the canvas elements...Fabric Favorites, Canvas Borders and Tape Rolls...I really like the texture and the look that they give to a project.

♥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.
