October Studio AE From Technique Tuesday Blog Hop

Welcome to my stop on the Studio AE blog hop!

Today we're featuring the October set, December Joys


This set is, of course, perfect for December Daily.  Also great for holiday cards, layouts, and Project Life.

Here is a layout I made with a few of the stamps from the set


My daughter was 5 in this picture!  Every December we go to Florida to visit my dad and stepmom.  When she was little there was a large FAO Schwartz near their house that was a highlight of the trip.  We have nothing like it at home.  Then sadly one year it was gone :(

There are a few more stops on the hop:

Mendi Yoshikowa  (October's special guest!)

Tobi Crawford (October's other special guest!)

Daniela Dobson

Nichol Magouirk

Ali Edwards

Laura O'Donnell (you are here)

Sharyn Tormanen

Teri Anderson

From comments made during the hop we will do a random draw for a $25 gift certificate to the Technique Tuesday store.  Winners will be announced on the 13th on the Technique Tuesday blog.

Thanks for stopping by!

I live in NY and we have an FAO that my kids visit as well now. This year my little girl (who is 5) I think will really enjoy it as the last years when we've gone w/her brothers she sleeping can't wait to capture some fun memories! Love your layout.

I like the fact that you can use the stamps for layouts other than just Holiday layouts. Nice job.
