In My World

Ok, I'm being brave here and showing one of my Smash pages. I LOVE smashing but don't often feel confident in blogging them. But I had a Saturated Canary colouring fest just before Christmas and was determined to enter the challenge. This time it's song inspiration.

A while back, Krista had explained a game she plays with her kids where they imagine a fantasy world. I had a go with Lou ages ago and it was loads of fun. This page was originally going to reflect my fantasy wire from house to wherever, cycle paths, dance studio, control of time, everyone being nice, etc.......except it changed!

As I did the first 2 parts, which were the nice body and landscape parts, I realised that actually, I'm lucky enough for lots of my fantasy elements to be real.........I just need to appreciate them more or to make time to enjoy them! I WOULD still like to control time, but I am going to try to change my outlook a little. I know that I get hung up on details and like perfection, but it is not always necessary to set such high standards for myself....I need to be ok with lower standards and expectations sometime, then I may have more time to enjoy my children, or the hills, or exercise, or whatever more! Wish me luck:0)

So, I have used a page in my Pink Smash Book, together with some fab Darling Dear papers and elements. I've used Saturated Canary Krafty Kate and Jamie Workout. Both have been coloured with pro markers. I've also used my new Spellbinders Foliage die, which I'm loving!

So, I would like to enter the Saturated Canary challenge - Song Inspiration ( In My World by Moody Blues - my dad will be proud!!)

And here are a few close-ups:
