SMASHING weekend

This weekend was a SMASHING one. I got out my SMASH book and finally completed a few pages. I smashed about a few celebrations, Canberra turning 100, the balloon festival, attending a big Brumbies game and my birthday.

The yellow things in the pockets are some clap stick that you blow up and clap together.

Every year Canberra has a baloon festival with lots of different types of baloons. This year they had a Darth Vader, Turtle and cute bumble bees.

This was a special game of rugby union. The Brumbies were playing in a special jumper to mark Canberra's 100 birthday. The atmosphere was awesome.

I received a delivery of a bottle of champers, a cute soft teddy bear and some chocolates.

I even had cupcakes with lots of different colours
Thanks for looking.

Tall Storage Draws

Something different this post. On the weekend i finally finished my kaisercraft storage box. When i saw the new kaisercraft 75 cents range, i knew that this paper would be perfect for this. I did something different, instead of painting the edges i used my washi tape. This was sooo much better as i didn't get paint everywhere, it looks clean and so much nicer. The embellish bits are from the In the attic by kaisercraft.

Thanks for looking. Till next time

'Happy' Layout

Scrapville's Feb/March Challenge
Sketch Challenges.

Here is my take on the challenge

For this challenge i challenged myself using Apricot (not a colour i would use). This is a photo of my parents wedding. My mum's dress was apricot. The funny thing is that my parents still have that picture in the background.
