A Hoot of an Adventure!

Happy June, y'all!  
With Summer and camping weather around the corner,
I couldn't wait to break out the new 
"Adventure Collection" by Authentique Paper
and make something to hang in our camper!

 I had this adorable owl cutting file on hand from Miss Kate Cuttables and I knew that I
wanted to use it in some form or fashion. I cut him from some Core'dinations cardstock
and a polka dot paper (Seasons: Autumn Collection).

The cutting file also comes with a tree branch, which I cut from the woodgrain paper. 
 The leaves were cut from two colors of green found in the Adventure 6X6 Paper Pad
 I also die-cut a couple of oval shapes from two of the paper pad papers and then 
added one of the sentiments with foam.

 I cut the base of the hanger using a scrolled album die by Top Dog Dies
I added some machine and hand-stitching to give a more homespun feel. Two holes 
were punched at the top and some faux burlap ribbon by May Arts was tied for the hanger.

There will be lots more to see of "Adventure" on the Authentique Blog :)
Have a great 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.
