I've been Smash*ing!

Hi there. Something a bit different from me today - as my post title says...I've been Smash*ing!! Now these books seem to have taken the crafting world by storm and I think everyone's heard of them but for the two of you that haven't, they're something that K&Co brought out a while ago, kinda like a scrapbook. I actually bought two of these books - the red one and the blue one, when they first came out but I know it sounds silly but it took me ages to use them cos I was worried about mucking them up!! Now I've finally bit the bullet, I thought I'd share them with you:

It's basically lots of quotes/sayings/words to live by, most of which I found on pinterest, and then I went a bit kerazy doodling with my sakura pens!!
Let me know if you've been smash*ing and if you've put any of your pages on your blog, please share the link, so I can have a nosey at yours. Hope you've enjoyed seeing something a smidge different?!?
Lastly, let me go saying 'MAN, Is it EVER gonna stop raining?!?!?' The funny thing is, there was talk of a hosepipe ban - what a joke!! Back

Teddy is 1!!

Just a quick post cos I'm on my way might remember me mentioning one of my best friend's has a gorgeous little boy called Teddy and I can't believe he's now turning one!! She's having a tea party for him today and that's where I'm off to. I've bought him the coolest present - it's a cookie monster from Sesame Street wearing a rucksack on it's back and you press it's foot and it says 'Hiya' 'I smell cookies' and when you put these plastic cookies in it's mouth or the rucksack, it counts. Honestly, it's hilarious!! Hope he likes it as much as I do LOL!!! Here's the card I made for him:
Image - Digistamp Boutique coloured with Spectrum Noirs.
Papers - MME.
Other - Edges all distressed with Making Memories distressing tool.

And that's it!!! I'm going to enter it into Digistamp Boutique's April Customer Competition and Challenge 78 over at Truly Scrumptious, which is the fabby sketch I followed. Right, I'm going - got tea to
