Bright colors for a dull day

My, my, but the last 2 days have been dreary in middle TN. Good time for some crafting to brighten up the day, I suppose.

This week, thanks to a sweet-heart friend who sent my some happy mail, I was able to play along with Tickled Pink. Their challenge was to use "bright colors" this week. RIGHT up my ally! To color this image I used a mix of copic and bic markers. I cut out some flowers from the paper and popped them up to add interest and dimension to the card. The words were a rack from that same friend's happy mail. Loved this challenge, and def love Tickled Pink. So much tude!!

I have also been smashing again, finally! SOOO excited by these pages! Esp after the inspirational slump I was in last evening. The red page is all about me and my hubbs of 7.5 years. A photo strip from the mall when we were dating, probably close to 2 years before we got married, and a picture from after we married. Our first Christmas together. <3
LOVE POCKETS!!!! SOOO going to use more pockets in my smash books. SO useful! 

This page is about my muse, Noah. He inspires me daily so its no surprise that he is in my book of things I love and that have shaped who I am.  
Did I mention I like pockets? em.  
Hope you enjoyed and were possibly inspired by my post today! I hope to be back in a day or two with another upcycle that I did the other day. But it will need to wait for a NON-rainy day to get good pictures.  Laters!
