Good Friday!
I wanted to share my newest news.  Thank goodness I only had TWO days to keep this quiet LOL...I've borrowed this from the Imaginisce Blog:

2012 Imaginisce Design Team Announcement!
Well, today is the DAY for the BIG reveal!!!
We want to thank ALL of you that sent in an application for this call.
We were overwhelmed by the talent and this made our decision both
time consuming & very difficult as we sifted through over 120 submissions!
It is with great pleasure that we introduce to you the
2012 Imaginisce Design Team

Adora Concepcion (Washington, US)
Cari Locken, DT Co-ordinator (British Columbia, Canada)

YAY!  Who's excited?  That would be ME!
I will get the Team's blogs linked up so that you can check out their work. 

In the meantime, here is a new album that I wanted to share;  it's now up at Dot & Whimsy.  I'm anticipating quite a few new assignments beginning in the New Year, so I don't know how much time I'll have to devote to my Etsy's all good though!

I used the FARMHOUSE Collection by Crate Paper and coupled it with a blanket stitch...looks so cozy and homey...just right for old family photos. 

Well, just when everything was going good...the Message Board is down again today :(  We're all keeping our fingers crossed that it's just because of a 'little' maintenance. 
Speaking of MSN...I received the JANUARY NOOK kit today.
Total and complete gorgeousness!
A hint?  It deals with bubblegum, flirting and the color raspberry ;)  I'm not sure when the reveal goes up, but I'll keep you posted.

I ran across this YUMMY twine from The Twinery...I adore these colors for the Christmas holidays
I'm off to actually *print* my photos for my December Daily Album AND I have two more months and I'll be finishing with mom's calendar....I'm feeling a big load coming off the shoulders soon.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend

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.
