An Owl & True Friends

I have the little cork-board hanging up in my scrap room that I created as my last project for Your Scrapbook Stash.  Sydnee saw it and wanted one for herself.  I picked up some 50% off zebra papers from Hobby Lobby and went to work!  With my project for I Heart Ippity coming due, I decided to incorporate a few of the fun flower stamps from the Flowers+Friends=Priceless set.
I painted the 8x8 canvas base with a turquoise acrylic paint and wrapped the edge with a zebra striped ribbon.
 
 
Matches the new comforter perfectly...I can't wait until she sees it :)

DOT & WHIMSY
I've listed a new paper bag scrapbook album at my Etsy shop today.  Here are all of the photos for those of you who are visiting from there.
 
 
 
A total of 10 pages for photos and journaling...plus an additional 5 tags for jotting down those sweet memories.  I've used the So Sophie papers from My Mind's Eye


I'm taking photos everyday for December Daily...I still need to print them, but that can be saved for a little later.  It actually S*N*O*W*E*D here on Tuesday morning and I was able to capture a few of the flakes before they melted.  Even more photo opportunities this weekend...Christmas in De Kalb this Saturday; Sydnee will be dancing two routines.  Sunday our adult choir will be performing the We Believe musical at church.  Kingdom Kids will put on their Christmas play that night and Syd has a bit part, as well as singing.  The kids are begging for a few presents to be put under the tree, so at some point I've gotta get to wrappin' :)
Enjoy every moment of the Season!
See you!

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.
