She's Eleven

I'm getting this Monday started off with a fun & bright layout...
it's cloudy here and it's Monday...I need fun & bright!
DOODLEBUG DESIGN & KIWI LANE DESIGNS
teamed up this past week and today to bring all sorts of projects using the 
two companies' products.  I received the "Celebrate Accessories" Templates from Kiwi Lane, so 
I decided to use Doodlebug's "Birthday Girl" Collection and photos from my daughter's 11th birthday.


For the base paper I selected Doodlebug's Limeade Sugar Coated Cardstock...a little shimmer
goes perfectly with such a celebratory page :)  Next, I made a smaller inset from a sheet of Swimming Pool Petite Print Cardstock.  I cut along the banner/cloud border (Cake & Ice Cream Collection) to create two different swagged pieces.  

I selected the paper for the balloons and then traced using the Kiwi Lane template.  
Using a fine-tip glue pen, draw a wavy line onto the paper...this is a wonderful way to make sure
the Doodle Twine stays in place, as I did for the balloon's string.
The bottom scallop and title banner are also templates from Kiwi Lane.
I made this layout while away at a crop, so the templates came in extra-handy!

Come by and see many more ideas on the Doodlebug Design Blog.
Not sure what Kiwi Lane is all about?  They have a very informative video on their website that
gives detailed instructions on how to go-about using their tracing system!

Once again I am very excited to be participating in the "SEASONS GIVINGS BLOG HOP" Each blog that you visit along the way will offer a unique giveaway, so don't miss a single stop and invite your friends to hop along too!
♥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.
