Smash Hop!

If you love spaghetti, then you know it is always better tasting on the second day.  Don't really know why, but it is.  For sure.  It just has to sit for a while, people.  Then go back to it, and yum, yum, yum.

That is how smashing is sometimes, too.  Letting a page sit for a bit can be a good thing.  Come back to it a little later.  Make it better.  Because you add a little spice to it.  The tiny details make a beautiful page!

Today I'm joining a bunch of awesome, Smash-a-licious girls on a blog hop.  Be sure to check out all their pages and creations, as there are a lot of prizes and fun giveaways!  For my first page, I used the wedding Smash book.  I am not using it for wedding photos or anything like that.  Instead it is 'Me & Phil' sort of deal.  Pages full of notes and lovely little things we've shared.  

Here is the first step in making my spaghetti Smash page:).  Hope you enjoy!


After I was finished, I let it sit. Came back to it.  Decided I wanted to tie a few more pieces together.  Like, the yellow bee ribbon I used.  I needed a 'bee' something-or-other somewhere else on my page to make it all flow better.  So, I added a pocket on the back of my left page, and made a cute pull-out tag with some sweet Freckles and Pigtails stamps!  I also added some gorgeous yellow-flowered Freckled Fawn material tape.  I think just those two things made my page complete.  The meatball on my spaghetti!  Perfecto!

For this leg of the hop, I have a wonderful prize from a beautiful company, Freckled Fawn.  They are offering ! two ! winners a $10 dollar gift certificate to their sweet online shop!  You've GOT to go check out this place.  Besides being kinda magical, it is filled with all kinds of tape girls!  Material tape, washi tape, glass tape...and all of it is super pretty!

Kellie Winnell is the brains behind today's Smash blog hop.  She has an AUH-mazing shop full of goodies and a totally keen Smash eye-- she knows how to put the perfect kits together, full of fun goodies!  She sent me a kit recently, and it barely touched my desk before it was all used up!:)  I did a page in my small Smash book above, and I used her tag, paper bag pocket, tape, girl stamp, flatback, and doily.  I love how it turned out!

Be sure to stop over to Kellie's blog and the Freckles and Pigtails shop and blog! Give her some cyber hugs and kisses!  She is so sweet and such a fun person! Plus, she is offering some amazing prizes, too!!

Speaking of more prizes...I have a linky at the bottom of this post.  Be sure to link up a SMASH or JOURNALLING project!!  I will select one girl to win a $25 gift certificate to the new Saturated Canary online shop opening very soon!! There will be new stamps to choose from, too!!  Get your link on girlies!!

Okay.

Thanks for checking out my Smash pages!  Here is a list of the blog hop ladies in the correct order...you should be on your way to the fabulous Lizzie at Oh Snap! now:)...

  94. I've been learning to not throw something before I've let it sit - it looks better the following morning & all of a sudden you see it with fresh eyes & sort of just 'know' how to give it a little something for finishing. Real words of truth here - thank you. I can see how much you love Smashing & if you'll pardon the pun - it's SMASHING to see.
    Much love to you all
