Challenge Accepted

Hi all I hope your having a smashing day.
I recently started a challenge that was posted on the FB group SMASH*aholics, now I have had this challenge on my Pintertest Smash/Journal Board for a couple months now. But I seen it here on this group and thought this would be fun to do and this is what got me started in one of my Smash Books.
So I started my blue retro smash book for this challenge, I got the book from Two Peas in a Bucket on the for sale board, the binding was a bit beat up so I thought that it would be a good one to use for challenges. Now my plan is to do the 30 day challenge, but not day by day. Shoot if I did that I never get any work done and I need to work to be able to buy all the things I want, LOL!

So this is my finished page for Day 1: Yourself:
 I really enjoyed putting this layout together. I didn't care much for the page paper on these 2 pages so I added my own. That is the beauty of smashing you just do what you want it's all about you.

So what are you smashing and if you aren't what are you waiting for! I hope you have a smashing day!

Smashing Challenge

Hello everyone!!  Have you gotten into the new craze of smashing yet? I have and  I wanted to share with you a layout in my Smash book for a challenge on one of the Facebook Smash groups that I joined.  The challenge was to use either or all of the following-twine, lace, ribbon or fabric.  

Here is what I came up with.
With this challenge I started a Red Smash book and will use it for pieces of my life and  I look forward to sharing it with you. 
Have a fantastic smashing day!

One Small Flower

Hi everyone I am the designer today over at Card A Day Blog. Sympathy cards can be the most trying card to do when the event is taking place, so my thoughts are that it would better to have some done and available for such an event.

January card sketch challenge 
This card was made for a swap that I was in and the sketch challenge on the Northeaster Scrapbook Friends yahoo group I belonged to.

I cut the blocks of sunflowers out and the mat for it was cut with Spellbinders: Classic Scallop Squares small die 3" X 3". The background pattern paper was cut at 4" X 5.25". The borders (3) layers: the front layer at 2" and the back 2 layers at 1"
 The recipe for the card:
Border paper is from Stampin Up, background mat and the mat paper behind the flower is from My Minds Eye Bella Bella pack. Sunflowers came from Best of Brenda Walton Stack.
Stamp: I got from Micheals
Cardbase: White cardstock from The Paper Company
Ink: SU Basic Black
Punch for the layers: Martha Stewart Doily Lace.

This was easily made with the sketch and it would be appropriate for a male or female recipient. I'm glad that I was able to share it with you all.
Wow last month was a bit busy and I plan to be on the blog more often this month. I wish you all a good day....
