Color Crush: Pink Paislee

I was so excited to work with this month's 

If you've visited my blog often, then you know I'm not too accustomed to doing page layouts.
I do them and I like to do them, just not as much as cards or altered stuffs :)
I had taken a bunch of photos of Sydnee before her first "boy/girl" dance a couple of weeks
ago and couldn't wait to scrap some of them!  

To begin, I used a couple of the beautiful Cottage Farms Press-Ons to create a fun back-drop for my photo.  The Press-Ons go on with ease…I love them!  Next, I trimmed down a small square of the Luxe Placemat Circles and added it to  my page at an angle before machine stitching into place. 
 If you like to use a sewing machine, don’t be afraid to try stitching over the placemats…they’re not 
at all too bulky, yet hold their shape even after the needle has passed over it.

 Before adding my photo and other embellishments, I distressed the edge of the Luxe Copper paper 
with a walnut ink and then spritzed with both Color Shine Bronze and Mint Green
 While allowing that to dry I began building the mat for my picture from various  
Cottage Farms 6 X 6 Paper Pack.  Fun pieces from the Cottage Farms Paper Goods 
 were layered along with hand-cut hearts and Luxe’s Chipboard Hearts.

 I added a few olive green pearls to the centers of various circles and tucked in some of the black hearts from the Luxe Confetti Rubons: Copper & Black.  All of the colors from this month’s Color Crush board were represented in the small details, along with some unexpected additions like bronze and black.

Hope that you are inspired by this week’s Color Crush and will give it a try to!
  Both the Cottage Farms and Hope Chest Collections carry these colors in their palette.

♥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…

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.
