Hope you had a GREAT weekend 🙂

We had 2 hockey tournaments as well as an angry hockeymom who was “thrown out” of her son’s dressing room.. can you believe it? LOL.. I got myself into TRUBBLE…  but I was miffed.  hmph.  No one messes with a mama bear.. am I right sistahs???

Quick Bidniss update:  Elaineabella has been VERY busy chatting up a storm on FACEBOOK and on SPLITCOAST and has set up a challenge there… take a look!

Yesterday we had a bit of snow and of course my little Jayden was fully dressed and ready to play

the snow was shortlived but her smile lasted 🙂

So this week’s AJ TOOSDAY theme was ANYTHING GOES… so let’s see what everyone came up with

Here's Corey's page

here's Pinky's page

and I decided that I wanted to try a journal in a binder format.. never tried that before and I think I like it! LOL

I bought the Michael’s recollection version of SMASH.. I liked the binder size and the page design.  I decided I would keep some elements of each page that I liked.

Here’s the binder I chose

Here’s a sample spread in the binder.  How GORGE are those poppies?  and to stick and collage and paint in there?  keeping the poppies and the birdies?  Oh my imagination is running WILD sistahs!!!

And here is a page I altered using molding paste, acrylics, pastels, pen, gesso, stencils, collage  and of course some of our new  RUBBAH!  I used our WALL WITH WORDS stamp set and our HAPPY SILHOUETTES stamp set.  This was so much fun I tell ya.  I wish I could show you this in person.

Next week’s theme???  hmmmmm….. STENCILS.  Try to make your own out of cardboard, paper, acetate.. or use ready made ones.. but using your own will make you feel like an ARTISTE!    Use them ANY WAY YOU WANNA!

Don’t forget Bellarific Friday this week SKETCH! and comment on the BF post for a chance to win $10 in buckeroonis!

Mwah to da sistahs who LOVE to AJ.

    You go, Mama Bear! I totally would have been in trubble right next to ya 🙂 These pages are all so awesome – wish I wasn’t such a sissy-am so scared to try this! Thanks for sharing, and that Mike’s book is a great idea! Hmmm….? Maybe I could even do that!

    Yeah, I saw the binders in the store and wondered about buying it too. Aah, you had snow? can’t wait to use my wall stamp.

    Corey – I love the quote you used on your page – it speaks truth for sure!

    Em – your colours on your page are fabulous! Just so happy. It makes me want to dance – just like your silhouette stamp. Love it!

    I have not seen the Michaels binder version – that is a great idea. Perhaps I need to talk to Santa about that one.

    As for my page, it really is not a “journal page” so to speak, but a cover I made for a journal I am in the process of making. But it was “anything goes” this week so I just threw it out there for ya’ll.

  4. I love all the pages submitted! I really meant to get mine done but the days and weeks are going by faster then ever. Maybe next week.

    ps – you go Mamabear! No one would mess with my cubs either!
