She's So Lovely

A good Tuesday to you!
Today is the second installment of the 
I love pairing up Authentique papers with Petaloo anything...they were made for each other, 
which makes any project using the two fun! Today I'm sharing a layout of my daughter with photos
that I took after her last dancing show.
  I started with a background from one of the Lovely papers, "Crush" and a little bit of misting
 in black velvet by Heidi Swapp. The next step was pretty cool...I actually embossed
 a small piece of the "Dearest" paper in a rose pattern and used it as the mat for my photos.

The shabby chic look of the Pink Dahlias mix perfectly with the cute whimsy of the Mini Florettes
 with their blinged centers.  I placed a small round foam dot on the backs of the Florettes
 so that they would really pop up from the embellishment they were added to.

 In keeping with the 'round' embellishment theme, I used the three round seals from the
 "cards repeats" stickers, along with a doily die and round punch.  It's fun to experiment
 with the different punch-outs and stickers to see what will look best and where...Authentique
gives you so many possibilities in all of their collections!

 Be sure to stop by each company's blog to see the
inspiration and leave a comment so that you'll be in the running for 
this terrific prize pack

♥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.
