Smash Booking

I think I got hit with a Smash Booking bug. . . .

Becky at Sketches4All just launched a Smash Booking challenge.  We're asked to complete a minimum of 30 page smash book with Becky providing challenges per page as our guide.

I was hesitant at first but when I got to learn what smash booking was all about and found a suitable notebook for the project,  I plunged head on.

Here's the cover of my Smash Book:
(I just added a keychain holder with tassle)

I'll try sharing every page I make on this book
as the challenge progresses . . .

"Dressed 4 Success" Card for Kaboodle Doodles Challenge #120

Kaboodle Doodles' Challenge #120 is "Dressed for Success".  You could submit any project as long as it fits the challenge theme.  Winner to be drawn randomly with sponsor prize of $10 voucher to Di's Digi Downloads Tues, May 29, 2012 at US timezone.  Participants have until Sun., May 22, 2012 to link their entries at the Kaboodle Doodles Challenge Blog.

I was stumped thinking about this challenge the moment I saw the challenge requirement.  At first, I thought of dressing up a dress form chipboard I have, but I couldn't sacrifice any form of clothing I have for it.  Nor does the extra textile I have on stock beckon me.  And on (1) Sunday, I chance upon a cut and dress doll cut-out set sent with the newspaper for free.  It was of (1) of the famous singers we have in the country - Sarah Geronimo.  I played with the idea for a few weeks . . . And, later on, commenced on creating my "Dressed for Success" card, carefully choosing which dress cut-out for my Sarah doll to wear -- I chose "elegant" . . . thus, this fabulous card output from me for the challenge:

My Alice in Wonderland Tags

Hi!

I've recently joined a tag swap with fellow Filipina crafters.  And the theme is Alice in Wonderland.  It's my 1st tag swap and I was sooo excited and saw that everything just fell into place from the digital papers, digital image, embellishments and ribbon.  Though the deadline was set till June 15, I immediately got work underway and I'm happy to say that all the (13) tags (since we're 14 in the swap), were all finished and mailed.  Yay!  Now, I can't wait for June 15 to arrive to receive the tags created by my fellow tag swap participants.

Here are photos of my tags:
(Please bear with my for it's my 1st hybrid tag &
1st tag swap that I've joined)

1 set of tags of 4 different designs
(they differ in the background paper)


Here's a closer look at my tags:


 Hybrid Supplies Credits:  

Digital Papers:
Echo Park This & That Charming Paper Swirls; 
Carina Gardner:  (carinagardner_ital_p3_3; carinagardner_ital_p3_5; carinagardner_ital_p3_6); 
A-Manda's Creations: (aw_bunnny_textured pink 2, aw_bunnny_textured purple 2, aw_bunnny_textured yellow 2); 
Lettering Delights: (sub_05)

Digital Image:
Easter Bunny, Beccy's (Beyond the Fridge Crafts)

Embellishments:
All About Scrapbooking

Ribbon:
winnings from Colorful Creation
c/o Tess Davis of Creative Expressions

My What IF:
Now, that I've already mailed my tags, 
how I wished I listened to my gut feel to 
add some lace on the bottom of the tags . . . 
sort of like a tag skirt. . . . . hmmmm    :(

Just not sure if I can find 
the right kind & color of lace I want for the tags.
Maybe I'll just try it with the (1) tag left for me. =)
