Happy National Scrapbooking Day!

Hope you all are celebrating NSD with your favorite scrappy goodies and friends!
I'll be visiting and playing along at several places online...I have the entire day set aside for 
nothing but me and my scrap room :)
First, let me mention that Sydnee did indeed get another BLUE RIBBON in 
the 100 Meter Dash at yesterdays' 4th Grade Field Day.  She was soooo happy!  
And just in case you've never seen real-honest-to-goodness-baby-greased-lightening...this is it:

She also got FIRST Place in the Long Jump (out of 10 girls) and Second Place in the 50 Meter Dash 
(she had a bad case of the rubber-neck and kept looking back to see who was behind her!) 
 She's a natural athlete, much unlike her dear old momma LOL
So proud of my girl...she's a true J*O*Y

Wow, do I have some news that I've just been BURSTING to share...I've had to keep this a secret
since Monday

That's correct-o-mundo!  I'm a Unity Design Team Member.
  Let me tell you, these girls are the most laid-back and welcoming bunch that I've ever met. 
 You know that feeling when you meet someone and instantly click...well, that's us.
  In just a few days, we've already had loads of fun :)

Here is a layout that I created for the occasion of NSD and the announcing of the newest 
Design Team Members.  For this layout I used the Ippity stamp
Flowers + Friends= Priceless

I literally did this layout in 30 minutes...only made possible by this terr-i-fic sketch by Angie Blom
and of course, the sensational FAB{U}LOUS papers by Simple Stories

Welcome and Happy New Year!
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.
