Wedding Week!

Bella Blvd's Stephanie Hunt is getting married this Saturday...
A huge congratulations and best wishes to Stephanie and Steven!
We thought it would be fun to share some of our own wedding photos,
as well as some good old-fashioned advice :)
Stop by and have a look...all Bella Blvd Designers will be participating in this one!

Here is my contribution...from a beautiful day in 1991
 My note of 'wisdom'
After being married for 22 years the one thing that stands out to me is how much my husband
 and I have evolved over the years. Things that we had in common when we first met
 aren't the same today. Over the years you will develop new hobbies and interests. 
My advice is to be open to the changes that you will find in your spouse; learn to adapt
 to them as much as you can. It may not be ideal for you to ride around in a pasture
 to check on the livestock, but when it's important to your spouse you learn to share your time. 
For those things that you do have in common, expound on those and make time to enjoy them often.
 And even after the kiddies come along, keep a date night on the calendar...
it's amazing how refreshing a night out can be!

So glad you've dropped by sure to say "hi"...I'm having a give-a-way soon
and may change things up a bit just for fun :)

♥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.
