Newton's Nook: Day 2 of July Reveals

It's day two of the July Release reveals at 
Newton's Nook Designs!
Today we are featuring the set called "Beach Party"
This set will be given away to two lucky winners, so stop by the 
Newton's Nook Blog to leave a comment!

For my card I stamped the alligator onto a piece of white textured cardstock and 
then used Faber-Castell Aquarelles to color in the image.  Aquarelles are watercolor pencils, 
so I used a water brush to blend in the colors.  

I stamped the beach ball image seven times and then used a small round die to cut 
them out...a punch would also work great! To the center of each, I added a lime green
enamel dot...I love the texture that it adds and how it ties in with the 'gator :)

♥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.
