Welcome to the monthly SMASH Book Challenge for April 2014.

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

Topic 1: What’s new? – Have you bought something new? How about tried a new recipe? Smash about anything new in your life this month.

Topic 2: 10 things to be thankful for List 10 things you are thankful for this month. Use pictures as appropriate. If you have more than 10, by all means- list them all

Topic 3: Flowers Represent SPRING- Any flowers you see- take a photo & smash it. Even if you have to take a photo of some in a flower shop

Topic 4: Good deed I want to prompt you to find ways to pay it forward- do something for someone without expecting anything in return. Write about it in your smash book. Use photos if they apply. Did you clean out your closet & donate the items to charity? Then that counts. Did you open the door for someone as they were carrying things in the building? Any act of kindness counts.

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

Please let us know the name you like to be called if it isn't in your signature block.

Although, I try to get all of them done each month, I'm definitely good for at least one. Thanks for hosting, Char!

I love this SMASH challenge! Thanks for hosting, Char. Hoping to get more than one finished this month. I will be moving in about two months, so I am trying to clean, scrap, and SMASH at the same time. Not working as well as I'd like. LOL! But I am still here...

Sorry about the move Artesha. I hope it all goes smoothly, and that the transition isn't too bad.

I hope to work on something this weekend. BBL!

Hmmmm- I even downloaded Google Chrome & it still looks screwed up to me Can't add an emoticon from the Use Smiles link either- I can see the box, but clicking on one adds nothing to my comment

Thanks, Laura! I can't wait for the move to be over already! Looking forward to some normalcy and being able to sit down and scrap/SMASH like I want to.

Nothing new from me. I went on a trip with my son last week, and then I had taxes. Just now getting my feet back under me, so to speak, so I am hoping to work on a few things tonight.

Happy Easter. It's been a wonderful sunny & warm weekend here in Middle TN - the sunshine, red buds, dog woods & fresh greens appearing sure do lift the spirits. I feel very blessed.
