Welcome to the monthly SMASH Book Challenge for July 2014.

This is a monthly challenge to help those who want to work on their Smash Books & need some ideas & inspiration.

A Smash Book is something you buy (K&Co have quite a few, type Smash Book on the SB.com search box & you’ll see a selection; also CTMH has 2 Crush books that aren’t so topic oriented) or something you make- turn a journal into a memory collecting book. Or even choose a size of paper to use as the base & then bind the book together yourself. Really no rules here. Or you can use it to add pages to a Book of Me album or other such scrap project/album.

Topic 1: Water – Do you go to the pool during the summer- or better yet, have a pool? Slip & slide or sprinkler fun for the kids? What summer activity do you do (or dream of- say the beach) in the hot month of July?

Topic 2: Holiday Celebration In America we celebrate the 4th of July for our Independence Day. How do you celebrate? Fireworks? BBQ? Or if you aren’t in the US, is there a July holiday you celebrate?

Topic 3: Travel Near or far- do you travel during July? Whether it’s a day trip or a week’s vacation- tell us a little about your trip. If it’s something you do annually- mention about that & why & how long you’ve been doing that adventure.

Topic 4: Routine Is your summer routine different than other times of the year? What’s different? Kids? Yard work? Vacation prep? Party prep or attendance?

Do all the topics or just one- it’s up to you. No rules- just inspiration to SMASH

Most of all, have fun, share as much or as little as you want, give positive feedback & leave as we all need some of that about our work.

Love the topics this month. I have had a bit of a scrapping block lately. I hope to finish something soon.

I hear ya Laura- I've been sick for a week now- went to doc Saturday before our BBQ- for which I stayed away from everyone It was a good day overall considering & everyone had a good time. Still have a cough and am not feeling as better as I think I should with the antibiotics and all so just not feeling like scrapping. Been doing cards & stuff.

Coleen, your smash pages are awesome. Just the inspiration I needed.

I think I have a couple of photos picked out for water . . . I had to travel for work last week down to the Coast, and after I finished, I went down to the beach, took off my shoes and walked down to the water. I took some photos with my cell phone that I think I can use. Hope to have something to share later today or first thing tomorrow.

jci . . .

I have a couple of smash pages laid out, but still putting the finishing touches on those. I am going out of town this weekend, but I will be back Monday. I will try to check in between when I can.
