Aren't you so glad that it's Friday?
Can I get a little
The craziest thing...we watched the weather before going
to bed last night.  We were hoping that we'd get some rain, but the
weatherman told us that it wouldn't happen. At 2 AM we awoke to 
the loudest thunder and the brightest lightening that I've ever seen.  A loud
pop struck at the front of the house and this morning we find out that one of 
our large oak trees was hit by lightening...about 20 yards from the boys' 
bedroom!  It rained all night; it's still raining :)
Sometimes you love it when the weatherman is wrong...this is one of 
those times.  We greatly needed the rain!

Wanted to share my last card for this month's 
at My Scrapbook Nook
The challenge is: Round-And-Round
I asked that everyone use at least FIVE circles on their card.
Here's mine:

I chose to use nothing but the red/pinkish tones from the 
My Mind's Eye Indie Chic Collection and coupled it with the bright green
and pale yellow from the Jillibean labels (also in July's Kit).

Also, we're having a 
These are challenges that have been posted and will be posted all
Summer long at the Nook.
My challenge is a PINSPO Challenge

I've asked everyone to use this subway art as inspiration for
their card

by Simple Stories

  2. Gorgeous cards! Love how you layered the circles in the first one.

♥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!

A SN@P December Daily

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.
