Great Expectations

I had such grand expectations of getting so many things accomplished today.  Enter: road-block.  After picking up around the house, I figured that I would get my video camera out to make sure that it would sync with my laptop.  Nope.  Four hours later, after troubleshooting, trying to finagle drivers, it finally dawned on me to try my old Kodak camera.  Yes!  It worked...I had forgotten that it had a video feature on it.  So, now I have a headache and no desire to start on the cute mitten mini album or join in on the crop over at Absolutely Alter It :/  But, there's tomorrow because tonight it's...TEBOW time :) 

I checked the mail today and oooo oooo ahhh, I received the cutest stamps to work with this month...thank you, Heather!
The top two sets are NEW RELEASES!  You can order Ippity Stamps here

Here is the card that I made for this past week's
Totally Terrific Thursday
I paired up the stamped sentiments from THE MAN collection with papers from Echo Park.
This next week we'll be having a New Release Kick-Off-Party over at the Imaginisce Blog
I had an absolute blast working with the NEW Sole Sisters collection, as well as the I Rock heat-setting tool...too cool :)  The rest of the Design Team has been rockin' this collection as well...tons of cute altered projects, cards and layouts.  I'll be featured on Thursday, but I hope that you'll stop by before then and take a gander at the amazing designs!

Happy long weekend for some of you :)

♥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

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 :)

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.
