Smeared & Smudged's March Member Blog Hop

It's time for the monthly blog hop at the Smeared & Smudged Forum, the challenge/theme this month is to use the colors brown & green. Each month, members of the S&S forum (there's a link on your right for more info), can showcase their talents (and there are some VERY talented artists in the group), the only caveat being that we use a stamp somewhere in our project. They are loads of fun, and we usually "play" for the sheer pleasure. However, this month Strange Skin has offered one lucky hopper some delicious blog candy. In order to have your name entered to win 2 awesome digis, all you need to do is leave a comment about their project at each participating blogger. The blogger list is at the bottom of this post.

Now that all the info stuff is out there...

For my project I made a clamshell box using an old Club Scrap kit from several years ago. The pic is of the top before gluing it on. Pics of the rest of the box are forthcoming, camera battery issue as well as slow drying glue ). Don't you just love these Grumpies???? They do make me smile, something which I probably do too little of. Anywho, this little heart Grumpie is a digi from Smeared Ink released for Valentine's Day, but I think he's grand anytime. I colored her (he's now a she with the addition of a bow LOL) with Prismacolor pencils. The flowers are from Prima, Pastiche & netting. Added the Making Memories metal word colored with metallic markers.

This little box will house some memorabilia from different times with my daughters when they were young, like teeth collected by the tooth fairy, ticket stubs, a lone polly pocket, etc. They do grow up so fast ::insert sad face:: & it goes by too quickly. Well I hope you enjoyed my small offering, now off you go!
