I had myself a super awesometacular day at the shop. My very
dear friend Lisa from Muskegan came to town to surprise me!!
Well of course we had to play paper. Funny thing is I thought I was getting
a little bored of working on Christmas projects…..but Karen
from Graphics Fairy keeps adding wonderful holiday images for us to share.
So…… Lisa and I made SMASH BOOKS : )
The sweet Santa image is framed with chipboard that
I painted and inked the glittered. I added several layers of
pretty and well inked papers. Vintage buttons of course and a
silvery metal key charm. Nice big sentiment letters and
I love adding different sized pages so all the layers show. Fun dimensional stickers add
bulk and the tattered edge of the page adds texture.
These large bingo cards have been a lot of fun to work with : )
Have to admit…I am in love with this chartreuse pom pom trim. The pocket opens
to add more goodies to the book.
Die cut page from Lilly Bee is a nice detail.
I did add a generous amount of printed tape. This page has rubons too!
Last page has lot’s of room for pics and journaling.
Back cover is nice and simple.
Okay…..so here is a list of fun things I would smash in this book if it
were mine to keep…
Cup hugger from first peppermint mocha of the season
from my favorite coffee house and who I shared it with and the date.
Tickets to holiday movies or musicals.
Flyer from holiday band performance.
My kiddos Dear Santa Letters.
Pictures of kiddos in funny holiday hats.
Picture of new grey kitten climbing the Christmas tree .
List of our favorite shows of the year….compare list from last year!
List of favorite songs. Compare list to 10 years ago : )

Picture of first snow of the season.
Picture of the kiddo’s first snowman of the season.
Pictures of me getting pelted with snowballs by kiddos while
trying to capture first snowman image.
4 furry beasts dressed in kitty sized reindeer antlers.
Pics of family who came for Christmas dinner….hopefully wearing
kitty sized reindeer antlers.
First victim of too much desert falling asleep on the couch while
everyone else points and laughs.
Okay so the list goes on and on….but if I finish this post I can go
sit by the fire and have a nice glass of wine and wait for the home Peeps
to get back from Boy Scouts.
Thanks again to Lisa who made my day!!!!
