Read, Set, Throw

Getting in gear for Father's Day, we showcased a "masculine" theme this week at 

I took these photos on our last trip to the lake.  My boys love tossing the football wherever 
they go and the lake is no exception.  I just kept waiting for it to go into the water!  
My middle son, Zach, dabbles at quarterback and here he was practicing his throw.

For the layout I used a combination of "Take Note" and "Boys Only" Collections.  
My absolute favorite Doodlebug Alpha Stickers?  You see them here: Teensy Type & Party Banner!

I used a 2" square punch to the different papers and used them as a border. 

Punch-outs from "Boys Only" made this layout quick and easy to put together!  

And I'm not sure how far I'll get, but I was pretty excited to learn that I made it as
a finalist in the May Arts Ribbonista Design Team search :)  

Aside from loving May Arts' ribbon, I'd like the opportunity to push myself to find new
and unusual ways to use ribbons and trims.  This is my first non-paper design team that I've tried
out for and I'm really excited to be considered :)  The team will be announced July 29th.
Here is the link in case you'd like to see all who made it as finalists!

Hope you all have a happy weekend!

♥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.
