So happy to be joining in on my first Smashing Sunday over @  I have two pages to share that I created today - the first is light on items whereas the second is overly loaded - crammed it in, didn't want to do a two-page spread.

This one is about the Zines I've created to list in my shop
I found the typewriter on a piece of scrapbook paper and knew I wanted to use it in my smashbook.  Since I type up the text in my zines, liked the idea of the zine pages "coming up out of the typewriter".  Used a pieced of decorative masking tape just because I liked it and felt it had a "creative vibe" to it.  Used my Smash date stamp to stamp on the typewriter today's date and added a few other embellies.

Here's my stash of what I had planned to use on the next page - the overly crowded page of my daughter Kerri, at the Reds game with me and her friend, Jamie.  Most of the supplies I did use on the page.

Kerri belongs to her schools singing group, OVATION, and every April they are invited to sing the National Anthem at a Reds' Baseball game.  I took a few pictures of her and the group when they were shown on the jumbotron - game out pretty well.  The picture of Kerri - on the right - with her friend, Jamie was taken by an employee there as was the one of Jamie and me in front of the Ohio River on the outside of the stadium.  Kerri had to go with her school and we met her in our seats after her performance.

I created the rosette with the Tim Holtz Sizzix die and added a baseball sticker to its center.  Put Smash polka dot tape down both sides of the page with some red and white polka dot ribbon.  (Red and Black are her school colors)  I wrote in the journal block sticker and used it as a pocket for our ticket stubs.

I asked Kerri to write on the Smash journal spot about all the food the girls consumed.  Tucked in our photo reminder cards behind our pic and added a few baseball them stickers and stars here and there.  I normally do not LOAD my pages this much, but just felt compelled to do so for this Smash page.

Thanks for stopping by, hope you are having a fun SMASHING SUNDAY!!
