Daddy's Girl

It's natural for a father and son to bond over subjects such as baseball, fishing and cars
...but there's something extra special between a daddy and his daughter!  
Being a daddy's girl myself, I can sense and appreciate the bond of my daughter and her elder prince :)  
I was so happy to see the Strong Collection from Authentique Paper come on the scene...
it's handsome, rugged and filled with amazing quotes and sentiments for boys and men of all ages. 
 I thought it the perfect backdrop for this photo of the last Daddy-Daughter Dance that these two attended:
Going with the 'circle' theme that I found in the Circles & Scallops Die Cut Paper,
 I cut a circle in half and then placed them at each side of the photo.  To those I added
various punch-out circles and even used a small round punch to cut of the centers of some.
 Create layers with Die Cut Mini Notes, Titles & Phrases and Hinges & Tabs...
there's so much to choose from in this collection...the hardest part is deciding just what to use!
 After the paper layering and title placement I start adding on the different embellishments and of
 course a little hand-stitching and machine-stitching.  I like to work in clusters of three around my
 photo(s) and carry those same elements throughout the page.  Textures like wood veneer, burlap, corrugated paper and canvas would make a perfect compliment to Strong.  
And don't forget Father's Day coming up soon...Strong has plenty of fantastic elements 
for creating those handmade Father's Day cards!
Have a wonderful, wonderful weekend!

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.
