Welcome to the Monday installment of the

Only one more Monday to share our EAD projects with you :(
As you probably know, EAD will no longer be taking orders and
will be closing their doors at the end of this month.
 **You should be here from Rose's Blog**

My daughter went to her very first Halloween party over
the weekend.  I can't remember ever buying my kids a costume.  
We've always used resources from around the house!  
Yes, call me a tight-wad I don't care LOL
Let me share what she came up with....she called herself a 'nerd ballerina'
I thought she looked like Junie B Jones :)

 Ahhh, thank goodness for Dance costumes, right!?!
She wanted a little 'hostess' gift for her friend, so
we came up with this:

Clear pillow boxes are just perfect for vinyl from EAD!
We literally finished this in 5 minutes...and her friend was 
absolutely ecstatic!  Win, Win!

**Off now to visit Amy's Blog**

♥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.
