Welcome to the monthly SMASH Book Challenge for February 2014.

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

Topic 1: Things around my home – Those things around your house that you encounter every day- I challenge you to take a fresh look at them & take some photos of them

Topic 2: In my Purse what do you carry with you when you go out the door to work, to the store, where ever- what must you have with you? I used the ‘purse’ but it doesn’t have to be that- or just that. Do you pack a lunch? Do you have a water bottle? Whatever it is you must have to leave the house- document it.

Topic 3: Signs of Spring A flower- daffodils popping up maybe? Any sign of spring you encounter this month- take a photo & smash it.

Topic 4: Color twist What is your least favorite color? The color you would NEVER wear or paint your house with? The color you would never scrap with? Why is it your least favorite? Do you think it’s ugly? Or is there some bad blood there about that color? Take a couple photos & smash it

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.

No sign-up necessary- just jump right in

I have a question? Is this one page for a smash book? Or one layout? Or is it a smash book all about one topic? I really like the topic about purses. Thx

I think it can be 4 different possible pages you can do for your smash book. I hardly ever get all four topics done, and the purse topic might a little scary for me. I might need to clean out my purse first.

Lisa- you can make it into whatever you want really- but the idea is 1 or 2 pages per topic of your smash book

Coleen- too funny- I've already taken photos of my purse (and the insides) now to put them on the computer, crop & print them

I am going to take photos of the inside of my purse this weekend. I want to do my least favorite color, but I honestly can't think of one. I didn't like Hunter green at first, but I will scrap using that color.

Purple is hard for me. Char, can we combine the topics for a page? I think I may want to combine the purple with the purse content one.

Purple is my fav color, so that's not a hard color for me to use. Hmmm...putting on my thinking cap.

great job everyone- it was 75 degrees today & I went out scouring for signs of spring & didn't find much except that my dogs wanted to chase the neighbor's cows- not a healthy thing to do since he has a shot gun - anyway- have photos of my purse printed- just need to cut them up & put them down...

Well it has been so warm here, and then today another cold front started moving in AFTER I moved some plants out to the front porch. Aaargh! I think they were ok for last night but I may end up moving everything back into the garage. Ready for the cold weather to go away!

Happy birthday Char!!

We had a thunderstorm blow through last night, and it is still a little dreary and overcast today. I need to get off of the computer and back into my scrap room.

I hope everyone has a great day!

Happy Birthday Char!!!

It was overcast and cold here today. I stayed in most of the day but did nothing with my smash book.

thanks for the birthday wishes- yes I had a great weekend- Saturday friends gathered, shot some lead on our range by the creek, ate good food & visited with friends. Sunday my DH took me shopping for 5 hours- I know he loves me And the icing on the cake was my gf's daughter delivered a beautiful baby girl that evening. Funny- I had told them she was waiting for the 23rd to show herself A great birthday indeed

I've had pictures printed for some time now, but just have not had the chance to pull out my smash book & put them in- now I'm at a conference with my DH (military thing) and I hope I can get to it on Sunday...

good one Laura - I had to give up sodas, then caffeine, then aspartame... migraines don't play with those things well. If you ever start having headaches - think about cutting those things out- hope you never do tho- wouldn't wish it on anyone

Two more days left in March - and still Spring seems elusive- teasing us with a couple nicer days & then today- 46 and stormy w/cold winds- I thought if March came in like a lion it would go out like a lamb? Maybe it's got plans for Monday to be WARMER!
