Daily Grind: Dance

If you scroll down a couple of posts you will see the same photos, but
I couldn't help myself..."Daily Grind" by Simple Stories was perfect for helping
to tell the story behind Sydnee's weekly dance schedule.
"Daily Grind" is full of color, attention to days-of-the-week details and more!

You will see a roll-out of many projects using the new collection over the next few weeks:

"Daily Grind" is loaded with chevron patterns. For my layout I chose a couple of different
 colors and cut apart the red one to create a fun border! I then layered on dot patterned pape
r and a 6X8 speech bubble journal card. I used different areas of the speech bubbles as
a background for my photos.  

Syd attends dance two days a week and often has special engagements on Saturdays.
 I pulled the handy days-of-the-week journal tags from the "Bits & Pieces" pack 
and clustered them with a photo. 

A few stickers from the Fundamentals Cardstock Sticker sheet, alphabet stickers and chipboard 
stickers completed the page, along with several brads. You will love how well Daily Grind works
 with any of your daily, everyday photos, as well as Life Documented projects!
 If you like making your own calendar or organzier, this collection will serve as a wonderful tool! 

I appreciate you stopping by!

♥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 :)

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.
