Well, I forced myself into going to 'town' today.  You know the trip.  Sam's Club, Wal Mart, local scrapbook store, Wally's party store, gas-up...oh yes...I got some new tires today too!  Ah, there's just something about the way a car drives with brand-spanking-new tread.  I pulled up at the school to get the kids and just knew everyone was staring at their beauty...well maybe not, but I surely do feel that they've brought sexy back to my SUV :)
Today was the last of the (almost) 48 hours of rain, drizzle, mist and downpours.  Thank goodness!  I have pictures that I need to take tomorrow.  I'm thinking that I need to spruce up The Red Robin over at is lacking in new things and I have so much to I'll try to get some of that done tomorrow as well.
Okay, onto my latest project for

A really quick notecard using the HELLO stamp from the
The notecard is actually from a set that I purchased from Wal-Mart...all ready scalloped with a colored border.  I simply stitched on a swatch of patterned paper and embellished...literally minutes.  I think that handmade gifts make the best gifts.  Why not take a few assorted notecards, add some stamping, a few embellies and then tie them up in a satin ribbon for gift giving!

♥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…

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.
