Dreaming of Snow in Summer

 **If you are here for the Paper Haus Blog Hop, click here**

It's the last Monday of August 
and I'm celebrating this 
with a little bit of snow!

You should be arriving here from Rose's Blog, but don't miss
stopping by the EAD Blog to see what's up for grabs prize-wise today!
I just love this picture of Zach and Syd posing under the
Christmas tree on Christmas morning 2011.  
There are no forced smiles, but true happiness 
that only this special season can bring.

I've used various patterned papers by Jillibean Soup and loads of
these fun Snowflake Rub-ons by EAD.  I chose white for my snowflakes, 
but you can pick from a wide variety of colors...I think light blue and a pale
pink would look so pretty too!

Now it's time to hop on over to the EAD Guest Designer, Angela's Blog 
for even more fun inspiration :)
Have a wonderful week!

♥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

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.
