A Monochromatic Challenge

The Monday Morning Challenge this week at 
is Monochromatic Projects

I've always loved Stephanie's hand-drawn clouds, so that was the inspiration for this "hello" card.
 I hand-cut a few of them to act as a border that separates the two different patterned papers. 
The small High-Five alphabet stickers fit perfectly inside of the sticker cloud and I added a 
bit of color with yellow button over the sun.

 Supplies: Summer Squeeze: Summer Breeze, Just Write Journaling Stickers;
 Classic Calendars: Just Write Journaling Stickers; Scattered Sprinkles:
 Ice Sprinkles; High Five Alpha Stickers: Blue; Button Market: Fruit Punch

 I chose the large sentiment sticker as my inspiration for this yellow-themed card. 
In staying with its rectangular shape, I selected the yellow diagonal stripe from one of the
 Classic Calendar pages and made two strips for the top and bottom of the cardstock.
 I made my own sun shape with a couple of punches and then added a tab sticker
 at the bottom for a nice contrast.

 Supplies: Summer Squeeze: Treasures & Text, Just Write Journaling Stickers, Wildflower; 
Classic Calendars: Bell Pepper Calendar; Button Market: Neutral Mix

The Bella layout designers have a couple of really cute pages up today too!
Hope you have a terrific MONDAY :)

♥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.

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.
