Smashing Sisters Hop

 
Smash Hop Time!

Woop.Woop.

Today the "Smashing Sisters" (that is our new group name, which is kinda cool in an old-school, family sort of way) are throwing a Smash Hop!  The theme was 'seasonal.'  And I chose to stray a little and put my sweet stuffs in an Amy Tangerine Daybook.  

I am making a scrap journal to give to Niamh at her party on Saturday.  We already gave her our presents, but I wanted to give her something handmade and heartfelt on Saturday at the party.  I chose to fill it with summertime colors...some memories of the hot days spent together...and just some pretty pages that she will have fun flipping through. 

Here are some of my pages:)...

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Since this is a hop, you should be on a one-way-hop-train.  If you hopped onto the train mid-travels, check out the beginning here.  And, if you'd like to keep going onto the next stop, check out Cathy's Smash-inspired post here!  Be sure to stop by each blog, as I think there are some prizes along the way!

And, just because I wouldn't want you to leave this post without the chance to win something fun, I'm going to give two readers my next stamp release (Halloween-inspired) for free!

All you need to do is be a follower of my blog and 
leave a comment with your favorite season-- and why:).

And, just for the record, my favorite season is summer!  I love the heat, the kids home, the long days, no bedtimes, and the smell of suntan lotion!

Have a Smashing Friday, friends!
xx

ps, almost all the pieces I used on my pages are from these places: here, here, here, here.

  2. OMG I love your pages!! Love how you have coloured Queenie and Princess, love all the papers, elements, bling and sparkle!!! Thanks for a chance to win your new release!!! My favourite season is spring, not too hot, not too cold, flowers are popping up everywhere, birds are chirping and the kids can get outside after after the winter months!! Hugsxx

  3. My favorite season....
    I use to think it was Spring because of all the new life, the beautiful colors, and the sweet smell of rain on a pretty day.
    Then I thought it was Fall because of the changes of the leaves and the crispness of the air.
    Lately I've been thinking it might be Winter because I am, by nature, always a hot person and I long to wear my hair down and feel the ice on my cheeks.
    However, Summer beckons as well because of the longer days and the cricket song-filled nights. My boys are home and I don't have to share their time with school. We can laugh and play and sing and dance until long after the sun goes down.
    In essence, there is something to appreciate about each season and it is my goal to try to make sure to remember to appreciate each season!
    Thanks for making me think! :)

  4. My favorite season is Fall. I love the crisp clean smell, changing leaves, the excitement of Halloween (my favorite holiday) approaching, Football games, camping in cooler weather and roasting marshmallows by the camp fire.

    Beautiful journal you are creating for Niamh. Again Happy Birthday to Niamh, hope she has a wonderful party. I always love your embellishments.

  7. My favorite season is Fall. I was born in October and I don't know if that's one reason I love it so much. But another reason is I love being able to go out on a windy day with blue jeans and a sweatshirt...just love that feeling :O) Everything is turning beautiful colors and I love going to Brown County and see all the beautiful leaves, and I love the falling leaves....!

  16. My favorite season is spring, when everything is blooming and the days become longer after the winter. But in fact each season has its benefits - I love the long and warm (not to warm!) summer days, the beautiful colors of changing leaves in autumn and a sunny winter day in the snow.
    Hugs, Anja

  23. Stamps are so much fun.
    My favorite season is winter. But sadly it doesn't last very long where I live. I enjoy wearing winter coats and knitting scarves and gloves. I'm a fan of layering, which is why I love smashing so much as well.

  24. I'm another one that loves Autumn :) I love the change in the weather and the leave and I still have the habit of wanting new stationary and a chance to start new things that september seems to bring for me - an off shot from restarting school I think. I also love autumn clothes and have bought myself a new pair of boots already :) and love wearing my jeans and jumpers and long scarfs and things that are just too warm to ware in the summer. And the food - I love comfort food and autumn means that we can stop eating salad!!

    I love your pages :) I've just got a smash book - am just waiting to start it :) Have a good day

    my favorite season is spring.. i just love that its warm enough during the day and cold enough at night... wearing some light cardigans make me feel warm and i think cardigans are cute.. lol...

  28. It brings tears to my eyes about the scrap journal to Niamh. Something like that is going to be loved and cherished throughout her entire life! Which, reminds me, give her a big HAPPY BIRTHDAY! from a fellow Leo. (Give or take 20ish years, haha.)

    Although, I am born in August, I hate the heat! I even moved to Sweden to avoid it. :D My favorite holiday is Fall. I LOVE taking walks with the crisp air and watch the leaves fall. I tend to take a lot of pictures of fall...and winter (my next favorite holiday). :D

  32. Your pages are gorgeous, and I´m sure your girl will just love them too.
    My favorit season??? That´s a tuff one, cause there is good and less good things about every season. But if I have to choose one, it must be summer, because I hate cold and is often freezing, so I love the long warm and sunny days, IF we just get some of those LOL, but I also love the wonderful colors of fall and the bright colors and new beginnings of things in the spring, and I absolutely LOVES all about christmas, and since it´s in the winter, I also love that a little bit, and also the gorgeous look of the newfallen snow on the trees and so, as long as I can just stay inside and admire the view from my windows ha ha ha.

  40. What a sweet gift Krista. I am sure she will treasure it and never get tired of looking in it :)
    My favorite season is late spring because I am so glad when all the snow gets away! I am really not a snow loving person and can't believe how I ended up living in one of the places in Norway with most snow in the winter time...I blame LOVE...
    So when the snow gets away and I can go out in the garden again barefoot, that is just happiness for me.
    Have a wonderful day and enjoy the party tomorrow

Pumpkin pie, pumpkin scones, pumpkin bread, pumpkin lattes, I could go on and on!! Football is great too but the best thing about fall is the fashion!! Tehe. The best clothes are introduced in the fall!! Boots and yummy sweaters and all the different layers are the best!

Take care Zo xx

    I picked up a new Smash book, now need to get started on it.

    I like all seasons, but summer the least. I don't do hot, probably because we don't have a/c and those 90* days are tough! love love love the snow of winter and cuddles and hot cocoa! adore the colors of fall and football games and pumpkins and cider and apple picking. the re-birth of spring gets my heart going every year with the first sightings of the robins and flowers peeking through the snow..... every season has something to love! God is so good that way!!!! :)

    enjoy your weekend!

  78. My favourite season would have to be spring. It's always so nice to say goodbye to winter...the cold, the snow, the heating bills, etc. The warm spring days make you want to get outside, work in the garden, enjoy the fresh air. Of course this year it seemed we went straight to summer, and a hot one it is. Oh well, at least it has cooled down some though my gardens are toast...literally! lol.

    ReplyDelete
  79. My favorite was and is fall while I lived up north to enjoy the colored leaves, crispness in the air, preparation for Hallowe'en with the kids. Now as an empty nester and having lived in Florida for the last 16 years, I love our "winters". It does get cold and we have to dress a little warmer. Yes Florida does have its seasons too!!! Thx Krista :)

  82. Wow, how lucky is Niamh to have you for a mom. My birthday is in November, will you make me a beautiful book for my birthday?

  112. All 4 seasons have something special about them.

    Summer is warm and relaxed.

    Falls leaves are crisp and colorful and the cool air is a welcome relief after the hot days of summers end.

    Winter's snow is magicial!

    But spring is my favorite. It is like the whole earth is waking. The ground thaws and the tulips bloom. People start coming out more often and the animals have their babies.

    What a wonderful world God have created!

  117. oh thank you so much hun - Autumn or as you lovely Americans call it 'Fall' which I think is a much more poetic and beautiful name! I love that we can still have sunny warm days, late evening sunshine and just a chill over night - just enough to ensure you cuddle up to your loved one! I also adore the colours of fall - orange, red, russet, purples! We visited the New England many years ago and it was such a beautiful area!
    I bet your daughter will love her smash book - have a happy weekend hugs Karen x

  121. I have to admit Summer is my least favorite time of the year. I hate the heat. I would rather deal with winter snow than summer heat. My favorite time of year is Fall. I love the cooler weather and the more structured days. I especially love the food. All the fall squash, warm comforting soups and stews, and pumpkin anything! Thank you for the chance to win! I love your images.

I can't possibly have a favorite now can I?! Hugs rebekah xx

  132. Fabulous job, Krista....simply phenomenal!!!!
    My favorite season has to be autumn and not because my birthday is on Halloween, but I truly love, love the fall colors, the crisp air, the symphony of colors provided by the changing leaves and the harvest!! I live in the country and get to enjoy the full beauty of this season!

    ReplyDelete
  133. Ugh..this is SO gorgeous!! So yummy Krista!! My favorite season is not really a season..it is when summer is ending and fall is just beginning. While it is still warm out but the air is starting to get crisp. :) Makes me happy!!

    ReplyDelete
  134. I love those cute little buttons and what a thoughtful and fun gift! My favourite season used to be winter as I love all the winter colours and celebrations, but now I much prefer the warmth (a bit of a laughing matter this summer!) and the greenness of summer.

  139. Woops, meant to tell you too, I love Spring! There's just something so beautiful about seeing the world shed it's winter coat and the unfolding of all the spring flowers. I LOVE blossoms, the snowdrops, daffodils and all the gorgeous rainbow of colours that takes over from the winter grey. Love all the newborn animals that enter the world then too. It's just such a delish and joyful site to see the lil' lambies frolicking about. Spring fills me with a sense of optimism and joy, a spark of creation is set off in me at this time each year! W x

    ReplyDelete
  140. I love your smash* pages krista (it was you that inspired me into getting one) and Niamh book is so cute.
    My favourite season is SPRING. I love watching the world waking up from its sleepy winter slumber. Its like watching God breathe life into all his glorious creations. I love sitting in the garden and watch the birds foraging for their young, the birth of the spring lambs and crisp sunny days. i love the colours of Autumn too, but it reminds me the Winter is close by and I really don't like Winter, its pretty but for to cold..lol. I guess it shows how lucky I am to live in the countryside.
    I hope Niamh has a great party and hope your weekend is good too.
    love and hugs,

  145. My favorite season used to be summer. Recently I moved to the mid-west where it has been scorching hot... so my new favorite is fall. :). Back home in PA, the mountains are flawless in oranges, reds, and yellows. Definitely going to miss that this year! Thank you for the opportuniy to win! Your pages are so great!

    ReplyDelete
  146. Wow great chance to win an amazing prize! My fav. wow hard choice, I love summer for me, kids home hot weather and family vacations. However If pressed I would really have to say fall is my fav. season, but not for the season. My oldest 15 and youngest 11 both play soccer, and my middle 13 runs cross country. More than the beautiful season itself fall means being the supportive super fan, nothing is better than seeing my kiddos give it all they got for their respective teams. Celebrating effort not wins and losses, and hopefully teaching a few life skills along the way.

  147. My favorite season is the fall. Here (in Oregon) you can't imagine how many different oranges, browns, yellows, there are on our trees! Altho August, some have already started turning! Love your book...Niamh is so lucky to have such a talented Mommy!

    ReplyDelete
  148. My favorite season is fall...here (in Oregon) the leaves couldn't be prettier. It is hard to believe all the variations of colors: brown, green, yellow. Already they are changing which brings one more thing to look forward to each day. Niamh is so lucky to have a Mommy with such a talent. I would've loved receiving such a special gift when I was young. To think...I still cherish the handmade items from my Mommy!

    My favorite season SRPING - when mother nature wakes up from her winter sleep and dresses this wonderful world in amazing colours and life begins again with new babies everywhere. Even us adults feel like newborn again :).

  155. YOur smash book is amazing! Alwasy love popping in to see what you are ups to =)

    My favorite season is winter, this is because I get to go crazy decorating for Christmas and also with Snowmen Once Christmas is over then more snowman deocoration come out till spring!- I just love all the festive lights and decorations that I make and find - feel so sad in spring when I have to take all the remaining decorations down. I am not a huge fan of loads snow and super cold cold temps but as long as I do not have to shovel and the temp says at a nice cool temp I am fine LOL.

  158. My fav season is Fall. For some reason, taking chilly autumn walks being outdoors in sweatshirst and little finger mittens, brings me closer to the feeling of being a child of God. The sense of awe at the changing leaves and the beauty of God's Creations around you. Animals getting ready for winter, your cold breath you see as you exhale. And of course, hot cocoa with marshmellows when you get in! I don't know, I just love that time of year!

  180. Hi Krista,

    My favorite season would be summer, even though I live in Puerto Rico which is summer all year long. But I enjoy the beach and water sports and nice warm breeze, bike riding any outside activity. And I also love not to have to wear coats and scarfs. Oh well, I guess its not the season I love its PR itself!! lol

  183. Following you (probably already was or should have been!)
    My favorite season is spring. I live in Michigan so the winter is very cold and snowy and miserable and then it suddenly starts to warm up and it's such a great feeling to have made it through winter and see flowers and trees growing and all. I think I like the whole hope/ rebirth kind of aspect of spring and that's when the weather is just the most perfect. Nothing like shedding the winter coat and gloves for the first time in months and going for an early spring walk and seeing what flowers are popping up. :) thanks for the chance to win!
