Something Borrowed, Something Blue

Something Borrowed, Something Blue 
is the name for the very first CARDS Challenge for September at

The Nook will be closing its doors at the end of this month, but boy, they're
going out with a bang with this final kit by Echo Park Paper:
"For the Record2"
The blues, greens and yellows are a perfect way to end the Summer.
For my challenge, I've asked participants to create a card using:

Something Borrowed: this can be anything unconventional to scrapbooking.
 Scour the house for an unusual item...use a cookie cutter as a template, 
fabric from an old dress, jewelry, or the image from a gift card as the inspiration
...just anything that inspires will do!
Something Blue:  make any color blue as your main color scheme.

Here's my take on the challenge:

Something Borrowed:  I always save bits and pieces of interesting clothing...especially denim.
  I cut a small piece from an old shirt and lined the back with a bit of batting and then machine
stitched into a heart design.

This card is two-part as I wanted to share some more of the lovelies that can
be found at PRO 31 DESIGNS

The blue braided trim and pearls, as well as the turquoise paper flowers 
are all in supply at :)

That's all from me blessed!

♥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.
