Having a SMASH*ing time !

I've had a great day today visiting the Art Stamps show in Bodmin, Cornwall with five crafting pals There weren't a huge number of stalls but the ones that were there were packed full of fabulous goodies. 

We all did a couple of 'make and takes' - one of them was with Stampin Up! where we made a fancy fold card, in the other we made a brooch from Ecoboard. 

I also signed up for was what described as a 'Scrapbooking Workshop', which actually turned out to be a decorated canvas session.  It was tremendous and messy fun and I'm pleased with the finished result, although want to add a few final touches using some of my own stash now I've got it home. 

I'll take some pics of today's projects and post them up on here tomorrow.

This week I ventured into the world of SMASH* Books, staring my very first pages in the SB I've had for a while.  I'm already hooked and everywhere I look I see things I want to add to a page or start a new page with.  So, here are my first five pages, lots of stuff from my recent vacation in the USA:






I'm loving how the pages just grow organically and constantly change as I find more interesting things to add.  I've started a couple more pages but I won't bore you with any more today, I'll save them for another day!

Hope you're having a great weekend - the weather is freezing here, hoping it warms up a bit soon as my Dad, Bruv and family are down in Cornwall for a week's holiday and we are planning to join them for a couple of days during the week.
