My December Daily PLUS Social {Media} Butterflies November Blog Hop

Happy merry making to all! Welcome to the November edition of Social {Media} Butterflies blog hop. If you started at the beginning, you should have arrived here via Shay's blog. If not, stop back there and then hop along to the following ladies' blogs. Be prepared to be inspired!! Leaving a little love (comments) along the way may find you winning some lovely little scrap goodies too! ;)

To start off this month, I am sharing a holiday layout I made primarily with Lily Bee's Christmas line.
The white balance is off on this picture-but no time to retake pic so it will have to do for now! Ha!

Layout is of our first dusting of  "Winter Cheer. (aka the white stuff/snow)."  I really liked the idea of making the whole layout like an "oversized" polaroid frame. Think I may do another one similar to it for this season! :)

And although this time is super crazy for me (for everyone) I have been dashing around trying to finish up some projects to ready myself for this season. Included in this list of projects is finishing up my December Daily 2011. I am nearrlllly done, having less that a week left to complete. Here is the cover and a few pages I thought I'd share. Really love this project every year. As in l-o-v-e.

Some digital, some hybrid, and lots of traditional pages in my album.
                            {Because I like mixing it up. A lot. :) }

 (Click on any pic to view larger).

 Lots of October Afternoon Holiday Style made it into my album. Love that line and anything OA puts out! :) :) :) Makes me all kinds of merry. :)

 These are just a sampling. If you want to check out more, you can find them in my November, December 2011 Archives. ;)

Besides getting some serious Cyber Christmas shopping done this week, I did make a rare trip out to run some errands and used up a gift certificate to my LSS. Here are a few lovelies I picked up there (minus the Jimmy Johns ;) ):
A little mint julep, Jimmy Johns against the back drop of buffalo plaid-made for a great on-the-go picnic-with a little added gems thrown in!

I have some scrappy deadlines to meet-so I am signing off for now. But plan on heading back here really soon. I have some exciting scrappy news to share! ;) Throughout the month of December I will be posting a lot more, showing sneaks and full photos of projects and layouts I am working on.
