We Dance Together

Today is my very first post as a Design Team Member for

The October Scrapbook Kit, Welcome Home,  includes the new
 collection from Dear Lizzy...5th & Frolic, as well as 
Amy Tangerine's Ready, Set, Go!  This paper kit is just right for
any photos pertaining to home, love, family and happiness ♥

My project today is a 12x12 layout using one of the 
Ready, Set, Go! papers, stickers from the 5th & Frolic sticker booklet
and other embellishments from the October Kit.
 I took the 4x6 photo at the top and cropped the bottom two photos down so that
they would measure the same width across.

The kit also comes with this cool 1.5" chevron had me thinking "arrow" so
I cut one end into a point and the other into a dovetail.  I also pleated the ribbon just
a bit to give it more dimension and interest.

The icing on the cake is when you get to start adding the extra little bits.
You know I love the 'visual triangle', so I formed one using small punched circles
and a few flecks of shimmery ink spray (I used Fireworks Pear Tart by Tsukineko)

I applied the small banner stickers with a foam dot and then strung a bit of
baker's twine over the top.  Adding the bow at one end gives the appearance that
it's really suspended from the page :)

If you love Dear Lizzy and have been anticipating the release of 5th & Frolic, then
why not try The Paper Bakery if you haven't already :)  And there will be mixed
media kits available as well...all monthly kits coordinate beautifully together!

Back tomorrow with the.....(I'm excited about this one...)
oh yeah!

♥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!

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.
