Ya all know that Cathy and I have been up to something.   Everyone has been hounding us.  Thank you for being so patient.  You all must know that we are totally stoked about what is happening.  

So.... what is this big secret that we are going to reveal?  I'm sure some of you guys have already pieced together some ideas - we have a new little sister to the group!  Welcome DAYBOOK DELIGHTS!

A couple of weeks ago, Kellie had suggested to Cathy  "You should start a daybook group!"  Cathy fell in love with the idea almost as fast as anyone can fall in love with Kellie!  I mean, I've known (via internet) Kellie for almost 3 years now, and she has become one of my bestest buds!  She's just awesome!!   

Then we have Mimi, another fellow SMASHaholic gal, who challenged everyone to make their own daybooks in our SMASH*aholics group a few months back.  IT WAS A HIT!  We started posting away our handmade books and our Amy Tangerine ones too!  And with almost 1800 members, it was hard to NOT make a different group solely for daybookers!  There is just something about daybooking that suits a busy lifestyle, or those special moments that deserve their own book.

Cathy and I started brainstorming and the rest is...  history.

Here is a peek at the daybooks I created.  I didn't participate in the swap due to time constraints, but I have been RAK-ing them out to a few lovely ladies!!!  I made 6 of them.

Covers sprayed with Dylusions Sprays with a mask I created.

Inside created using Echo Park's Everyday Eclectic and some homemade diecuts and printables made by me.
All of which were inspired by Amy Tangerine's Hug Life Daybook.

So, you might be asking yourself... what is Smash*aholics.  It's basically a group where people share inspiration for their SMASH books.  And when we realized a number of people enjoy doing other things (minus your 12x12 and mini albums), people did daybooks to scrap their memories.

To kick off the group's charter, we are giving away this awesome Daybook Kit of Amy Tangerine goodies by American Craft:
