Smashing Blog Hop...


Welcome to our SMASH*ing Blog Hop!   I am very honored to be joining these amazing talented ladies on a wild and crazy Seasonal Themed Hop!

If you arrived from Miss Cathy's blog, then you are in the right place.  If not, you will want to head on over and start at Miss Kellie's Blog.

Here is your hop order...

Kellie - www.kelliewinnell.com.au
Karyn - www.karynscraftingobsession.blogspot.com.
Krista - www.saturatedcanary.blogspot.com.
Cathy - www.insidethecraftersstudio.com
Kimm - www.bearysweetdesigns.blogspot.com.  <-----You are HERE

Our theme was seasons, and since its nice and warm (and way to humid here), I chose to smash my page about Summer, and the crazy kids that make this summer so darn special.  As you can see, I finally got an Instax Wide Shot camera, and I am so in LOVE with it!

Full Page view.  I have grown fond of working with the bright colors.

Close up of hand cut and sewn banner.  Used the small camera stamp from the Point and Click Camera Icon stamp set from The Beary Scrap... that I also proudly designed. :)
Just another angle.  Papers and stickers are Echo Park's Summer Days Collection.
Besides my 3 kiddos, I get to spend lots of time with my neighbors kids, and my little niece and nephew.  I couldn't be more blessed.  My son is missing from this picture.  Although we took 8 photos that day, I'm sure one of my kids took the one with all 7 in it.  I either need to add journaling, or find that other pic.  LOL

Now for the GOODIES!!

If  you are part of the Smash*aholics Facebook Group, you will certainly know that there is a lot of hype over the Martha Steward Planners.  Well, I gotta say, I got myself one and started organizing my life.  Even with all the techy stuff out there today, I still revert to the old paper and pen.  I find it much easier than opening programs, go figure.  Not to mention, these look pretty darn cute decorated.


There it is!  One lucky hopper will get all this Martha Stewart Planner Goodness!

HOW TO WIN IT!!
  1. Leave a comment ON EVERY blog in the hop.  
  2. You must become of follower of my blog, if you are not already.  
The winner will be announced here on Friday the 17th of August.  You have till next week to enter.
Time to run along to your next stop.  Be sure to leave some love for the Gawjuss Miss Lizzie!

Happy Hopping!

  10. Your sewn banners are just darling. I love the way the look on your pages. I'm definitely inspired, not that I wasn't already. This hop is doing wonders for my creativity. I'm already thinking up new pages to smash. XD
    This planner is adorable and I know what you mean about reverting back to pen and paper. Plus I love the satisfaction it brings when I get to cross things off a list. XD

I was immediately racking my brain for stamped bunting ideas. I'm envisioning a mustache banner. ;) And I love the sewing machine accents. It really brings everything together.
