Authentic and Unique Opportunity!

When I received an email a couple of weeks ago from
Emily Lanham, the new Authentique Design Team and Social Media Coordinator, 
asking me to join their Design Team, I pretty quickly said YES!
And I really had no other plans of joining anymore Design Teams for now, but...
 always the BUT...
but having just recently purchased some of the newer Authentique products, and
having fell in love with the superior quality of their papers and stickers, I couldn't let
this dream opportunity pass me by :)  I even told Emily, "I really don't 
'scrapbook' much...I'm a papercrafter and cardmaker more or less"
She said that was exactly what they were looking for...lots of
altered artsy stuff, home dec projects, cards, etc.,
which is so authentically and uniquely ME (get it? hehehe)!

 I will be crafting alongside two other newbies to the group (and two fellow DT'ers all ready):
Guiseppa Gubler and Angie Blom, as well as veterans: Heather Conklin, Natalie Dever,
Emily Lanham, Janeen Shember and Loes DeGroot.

One of my first assignments will be using one of the newest collections: FRESH!
Fresh is described as:
 Our Fresh collection is reminiscent of the olden days of summer, celebrates sandy 
toes and invites ocean-blue water. As the sun warms the soul and 
refreshes the mind, so also, this line is soft and relaxed, creating the exact emotion
 one hopes for when laying on the beach. Hints of red pop in and out, warming the
 cool blues and neutral tones. 

For an up close & personal look at FRESH, you can visit Authentique or the 
Authentique Blog :)  If you haven't experienced Authentique, then I hope you'll 
give it a try!  Holding their papers in your hands can't hold a candle to simply
seeing them in a photograph.

That's all for today!  I couldn't wait to share my news with you all!
Until tomorrow...TTFN :)

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.
