SMILE - Bash It Challenge Round 2

Hello ladies,
For this week's Bash It Challenge at 2Peas Refugees, Crystal suggested the items below;

At least one PAPER : A piece of Basic Grey floral paper that has been in my stash for a long time.

At least one Item you can use repeatedly (stamp, ink, mist, stencil, dies, something NON CONSUMABLE): Stamps and ink.

At least one CONSUMABLE (meaning once you put it on the page it is gone) (i.e stickers, alphas, enamel dots/shapes, twine, ribbon etc): Flowers

Something you have not used in at least 3 months: a Martha Stewart small flower punch and a Stampin'Up stamp set.

Something that makes you SMILE : Our dog Félix

5 items of your choice : Buttons, Thickers, something Tim Holtz (stamp), Tags, Silhouette leaf die-cut.

I managed to make one layout from the items I had gathered using the suggested list.

The quote reads: If I had a dollar for every time you made me SMILE I would be a millionaire.  -Author unknown.
Look at that sweet face ♥
Thank you for stopping by and for any comments you may leave.
Bye for now. À la prochaine,

Lady - Bash It challenge

⧫⧫⧫  If I had to describe myself,  the first thing I would definitely say is that I am an animal lover, especially dogs. Animals are often the subject of my scrapbook pages. Case in point, Lady. She's an 11yr old miniature goat whom we adopted last summer. My husband and I bought a small hobby farm three years ago. Since then, the animals and chickens have somehow multiplied. We now have three goats, two sheep, thirty-one hens, one rooster, a pair of bantam chicken, two barn cats, one house cat, and our dog Félix. They keep us busy that's for sure.

This month a new challenge popped up on called the Bash It challenge. We had to choose five old, and five new items from our stash and see how many layouts we could create. Here are the items I chose;

Old (some items have been in my stash for years) :

New (to me) :

And here is my first, and possibly only, layout using mostly the items from my old stash.

I'm so glad I finally used that busy piece of Basic Grey paper. It's been in my stash forever. The title letters were made with the set of clear alphabet stamp, only ever used once. The "guest of honor" flair seemed appropriate. The blue banner, blue journaling paper, and the greyish paper were all from the
6 x 6 pad I recently purchased.

Here you can see the metal brads and clip from the Stampin'Up Hodgepodge hardware kit.
Finally, the journaling.
Hope you like it. Thank you for dropping by.
Bye for now,
