My SMASH*ing Weekend!

Wowee, I found time to do some SMASH*ing this weekend! Yayyy!!! I have a few crafting projects on the go at the moment and with limited time I often find it hard to decide what to start (or should that be finish?!?). Well, SMASH*ing won out this time. I'm devoting my Orange SMASH book to "2012" where I have layouts of monthly calendars and photo pages about that month.
These pages are all about some of our successes at our local Show/Fair last month. My husband and youngest daughter love spending time in our vegie patch and fruit orchard so entered heaps of produce. We won with our figs and then took out the Champion fruit exhibit! Just hilarious really when we dont even do anything to the tree - except pick and eat the fruit!
My youngest daughter entered some scrapbooking (done when she was 3 1/2 years old) and won the best exhibit for the junior section (under 16 years) - she was very proud.
My other daughter loves photography and won the best exhibitor for junior digital photography. I'm allowed to brag (hehe)!!
I love the Farmouse collection from October Afternoon and used one of my homemade fabric pompom flowers. I have also used a cute diecut envelope to hide some journaling.


Challenges:
bizzy becs store blog challenge: add texture
card makin mamas challenge: make it girlie
crafty ribbons challenge: things with wings
the squirrel and the fox challenge: food

WOW a family of winners! Was there no crafty comps for women? Bummer you couldn't enter something then you all would be winners! BUT you get to smash about it, so you get a WIN/WIN there. Love your pages Karyn! xx
