Terrific Tuesday and let's do some SMASHING

shall we??  I was at my LSS Photoscraps last week and looky here, looky here...we had a Smash crop and of course bought all of these right  up! WHAHH?? You don't know what one is??? (Keep reading!)

yup, the XL jumbo Smash book.....and, it's PURPLE!! But during the crop, I decided to work on a travel themed one since my first one was a mish-mash of just "STUFF;" and I want each one to be differently-themed.  Oh yeah, a SMASH crop is something that the divas at my local scrapbook store have instituted (you know you soooo wanna have your local store "lift" the idea)-It's a Smash book theme and they show the books and the embellishments and we all bring our books to share (if we have em)  and the instructor gives us tips and ideas and it's a general evening of sharing, laughing and creating :)  FUN FUN FUN FUN ....I took some pics to share but only a few since they aren't my books but have somehow misplaced the memory card (I'm scatterbrained this week)-but once I find it, I'll do another post.

So for now, here's some shots of my travel Smash Book-I am so in love with everything about the My Mind's Eye "Follow Your Heart" collection-it's got so much versatility, the colors are my true I had to use it !

so anyway, my next Smash book is a travel themed one and I just started so it's not junked up yet. But one thing I thought I'd mention is that the cover doesn't have to stay unadorned; I actually found the butterflies (2 pack) on clearance in the scrapbook aisle but the chain and other piece are from the jewelry section in Michaels.  They always have stuff on clearance in that section and it creates such a pretty addition to the book.  You can attach with trims, tulle, chains, washi tape , and more using that great thing called a cropadile that I do not own LOL...If you are SMASHING; let me know in the comments and add a link so I can come by and check you out!!!
