My Tribute

So today is the day of the 74th Hunger Games. The odds were in my favor. I got tickets EARLY and got a GREAT seat! Before I went to SEE the games, though, I wanted to have SOMETHING to wear. Ah, the ever present problem with being a female. NOTHING to WEAR.

Actually, while I was at work today I had time to brainstorm. Anyone want to see the inside of my head? hehe...Here you go!
Maybe I need Cinna. YES! Can I hire Cinna? No? Okay. Next best thing. Goodwill. Yeah, yeah.I am ALWAYS at Goodwill. People like...know me that bad?

So I found this AMAZING gold shirt and it reminded me of fire and I totally wanted to wear it but it was SOOOO not in style at news. So,I cut it up and appliqued it to a tank top. AWESOME! So in less than an hour, I was a girl on fire!
 Yay, Heat N Bond!!! 
 Even my shoes are on fire. :D
So, here is the result. Girl on fire...sorta...Squee! 
And the back....just to draw attention to my butt, apparently, LOL

You can't see it much in the pic, but I actually had some really dark smokey eyeshadow and some awesome eye glitter goin on!! 
It was a great evening. I am so thrilled to have gotten to go and that my hubby was interested in seeing it. Loved the books, loved the movie. When does the next one come out? LOL Have a happy weekend...and may the odds, be EVER in your favor!

It is official. Yup. I am ADDICTED to SMASH*ing. ::sigh:: the only problem with that would be the fact that I have not scrapped basically ANY pages of my SON from this year; nor have I finished last year's book. MUST get going on that. But before I do, here are some pages I did last night and Saturday.

This spread is something that I was inspired to do by my black smash* book. They had this section with questions about you, so I answered them and embellished from there. It was SO much FUN! I used pinterest and printed out the cute vintage images that had to do with my answers.

 This is a close up of what was in my pocket. My supportive parents, a list of places I want to visit (there are more, but those are top) and then a pic of my and my boys in FL creating wonderful memories.

This is a smash of my top 7 songs that define me as a person. The songs include: 
 Firework (katie perry), Born this way (glee version), All Along (remedy drive), I'm still here (johnny reznick), The Words I would Say (sidewalk prophets), 100 years (matchbox 20), Loser (glee).

When I hear these songs they expose my soul and who I truly am, inside and out. I printed the lyrics for each song and put them in the pocket on the right. I printed pictures that represent the songs on the left and matched the #s to the songs in the pocket. I used bubble wrap to create the cool texture, and some other things I had laying around. 

I really hope you enjoy and/or were inspired! Keep calm, and smash on! :D

So I finally took the plunge and bought a real SMASH* book. I chose the black one. I love the mod kinda feel it has and all of the graph paper and ledgers. Here are my project so far.

This page is dedicated to one of my favorite stories of all time, The Last Unicorn. I used to wait every year for thanksgiving so that I could sit and watch this movie. It wasn't until I was an adult that I learned it was actually a BOOK! So Christmas this year, DH bought me the book and I devoured it. This is one of those rare instances where the book and movie are almost identical in the story, which made it all that much better.
Sigh....Doctor Who...MY Doctor. I...LOVE...Doctor Who. Especially David Tennant. His character was possibly the best Doctor of all time. I have never laughed and cried so much during a television show as I did watching #10. ::sigh:: Now, season 6 is on Netflix so I am getting to catch up, but its just not the same. Matt Smith is okay and all...but there will never be another #10.  

This page is dedicated to a few of my favorite stamp companies. Tickled Pink, CC Designs, The Greeting Farm, Some Odd Girl, and I love Ketto, sold on There are more, and I will probably have to make another couple of pages, but for now, its just 2 pages. ;)

If you would like to see any of my other smashing projects, I made my own smash book before I invested, and you can see those pages here and here. Thanks for stopping by! Oh! And be sure to check out the SMASH*a-holics group over on Facebook!
