Sasparilla Anyone?

I finally got to break out my February 
This kit was filled with the cute and rugged Sasparilla patterned papers and embellishments from October Afternoon...I almost didn't want to cut into know how it is!
I made this adorable mini album

I actually am trying out Ebay again...Etsy sales are a little slow, so I thought I'd see if I could ramp up some biz auction style :)  Don't you just love it?!?
Speaking of The Nook...have you seen the March kit?
It is
Includes patterned papers, twine, rubons, wooden butterfly and buttons/pin assortment from Miss Caroline: Dolled Up by My Mind's Eye!  Also, some Petaloo flowers and Thickers...this kit says SPRING!
The Nook is offering some wonderful NEW SUB deals, so stop by as soon as you can before they run out!

I believe my Little Yellow Bicycle "Saturdays" project will be up today...I'll be back to let you know once I find out for sure :)

Have a happy Tuesday!

♥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.
