We've got prizes again this week,

Three lucky peeps will receive a
 $20 Unity Gift Certificate

I haven't had a chance to craft with one of 
Authentique's newest collections, Original,
 so I thought this hop the perfect venue to do so...
especially paired up with the gorgeous "Share Your Smile"
Itty Bitty Authentique/Unity co-branded stamp!

I stamped the wire dress form image in a vibrant blue
Kaleidacolor by Imagine Craft and colored in lightly with a blue watercolor.
All of the patterned papers and stickers are from the Original Collection.

I've had the pleasure of hosting this month's Unity Challenge: Pumpkins.
Here are two samples that I made for it!

 Both were created using a shape and background stamp from the
Unity August Kit-of-the-Month
I invite you to come on over and play along with us!
**Deadline is November 14th**

Let's hop on to Shilo Miles' Blog and see what she's stamped up for us today :)

♥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

**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.
