God Bless the USA

Good Monday and Memorial Day

First I would like to thank all of the service men and women who have served
and do serve our country.  It's only because of your sacrifice and God's grace
that we live in the comforts of FREEDOM!
And HAPPY 44th Birthday to my hubby...who always seems to have a nice long
weekend to celebrate his birthday LOL

Now, let's do a little celebrating with the

For today's assignment, I wanted to represent Americana.
Since Memorial Day is the unofficial kick-off-to-Summer, and because I LOVE
all things red-white-and-blue, I decided on this

  I used the whimsical hat and star Stickerz from Patriotic Party

I applied the Stickerz to white cardstock and then trimmed out.  I like to do this
if I'm planning on popping up the Stickerz images with foam dots.
Check out the huge assortment of Stickerz at EAD Designs...
those, along with Rubons alway ship FREE!

Now, off to see what the creative Amy has in store for you today.

♥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.
