Monday Blog Hop & Give-A-Way

Welcome to your
Monday Blog Hop and Give-A-Way 
with EAD Designs!
I'll be kicking things off this week, but be sure that you check out the
EAD Blog to see what's up for grabs this week prize wise :)

We were all pretty excited when my parents decided to treat us to a cruise 
this next year!  Although hubby and I have been, the kids haven't so this will be 
especially exciting and fun for them.  To keep in time with the anticipation as it builds, I created
this countdown to cruisin' display.  I used a metal mailbox (found in the $1 bin at Target)
and simply covered it in patterned paper from Echo Park.  I left one end of the tin
open so that the chalk can easily be retrieved (most likely by my daughter, who will have the
most fun keeping up with the countdown).  
 After applying the Chalk-It Tag I stitched on letter stickers to spell out 
"Cruisin' In...days"
I think Sydnee will have such a good time counting down the days!

Now it's time to head on over to Miss Amy's Blog
 Join us at Imaginisce as we share a WEEK LONG Blog Hop with The Twinery!
Fabulous prize packs to be given away, so be sure to leave comments along the way :)
My Imaginsice/Twinery project will be up here tomorrow.
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the hops!

♥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.
