Smashing Goodness

As promised ...here are the Smash Book pages I received from NZ's Paper Chase  Smash Book page swap.
My Theme was "My Favorite"
Which meant I asked that all of the players designed a page around something that was a 'favorite' to them.
Check these out, they are all delightful!

Jonnece has created a page show casing her favorite time of the year!  I love the warm antique colours, the the whole page makes me smile.

Donna has a whole heap of favorite things and has managed to add them all, right down to the tiny bit of stitching on her page, anyone who knows Donna will also know that the stitching is her trade mark! I can always find some thing new each time I look at these pages. 

 Maggie has used a soft colour combo on her pages and added gorgeous textures, so these pages not only look awesome they are also very touche, feel'ie! Love the images and the embellishments Maggie.

Jean, like Donna has many 'favorites' and I enjoyed getting to know more about Jean from what she has told me on her pages. I love the collage style and all of the 'eye candy' here! 

 Angela has used her favorite technique, Paint Embossing, and she has me hooked on this technique, Angela told me she'd love this as wall paper and so would I...hmmmm!!! 

 Ngaere's page is so full of crafty favorites that I have to show you more than one photo! Ngaeres favorite craft goodies include anything that can be recycled. Ngaere is the Queen of recycling I'm sure! 
 One of Ngaeres favorite images are wolves. 
 These pages have heaps of hidden journalling  pockets and tabs. 
 ...and fold out booklets! 
 Beautiful, and clever, all rolled into one. 

 I was extra lucky to receive these goodies,made by Ngaere as a gift for hosting the swap. I have already used some of the home made paper on my scrapbook pages. Will show you those tomorrow.

Ngaere made each one of us a Junk Journal...so cool! I'm looking forward to a bit of spare time to decorate mine. 

Thank you to everyone of you who played along and made this swap a success. I know it was alot of work, but I'm sure you will agree it was all worth it in the end! 

The rest of the pages can be viewed at NZ Paper Chase's Facebook Page

This one is a hit with all the males who have seen it. I must say that I did not really enjoy painting a truck and it will be a one off for sure! Uncle David is now the owner of this one. Next project on thepainting scene is going to be a fisherman- for my Uncle Graeme who is wanting me to paint him something. Really need to get onto this one!

Finished at last- I think

At last I think I have pretty much finished this painting for my uncle. Do hope he likes it.
