Lawn Fawn & May Arts

Hello and welcome to day four of the 
**You should be starting off today's hop with the May Arts Blog**

I love Lawn Fawn sooo much that I decided to do two cards for today

I adore balloons and these heart-shaped ones stole my heart LOL
I stamped it in three different VersaMagic Chalk Inks
Sea Breeze, Thatched Straw and Pixie Dust
After hand-cutting each of the hearts, I attached a length of 
the May Arts' Baker's Twine to the back.  
Next, I arranged them to my liking over the grey dot paper
and then adhered in place with a foam dot.  The lengths of twine
were gathered together and wrapped around the bottom of the paper and 
secured at the back with a piece of tape.  

I thought that the 'sunset' paper would look perfect with a row of 
low laying clouds followed by a bed of green, green grass!
I simply stamped the cloud onto the diagonal blue striped paper and 
then cut out.  I stamped the sun in a Brilliance Sunflower Yellow and used
a 1.5" circle punch to separate it from the cardstock.  
I added two widths of the green dot ribbon to the bottom of the sun paper.
Next, I topped those with a band of hot pick ric-rack  that I glued to the back
of a third strand of green dot ribbon

That's all from me today!  Here is a complete list of this week's hop...I'm your
last stop for today, so I hope that you've enjoyed :)

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.
