Top Smaher Challenge #1

Good Day to you! I have joined in on a challenge event on FB called Top Smasher (based off Top Chef, sorry never seen it) This is my submission for this past week's challenge:
The challenge: TOP CHEF CHALLENGE 1 : Red, pink, glitter, letter stickers and stars!
As soon as I seen the challenge I knew exactly what pics I wanted to smash. I think I got all the ingredients covered and I also used parts of my counterfeit kit to make the 2-page spread-that's a win-win for me :)
Up close shots:
 From the kit I used the pink hexagon paper for a border, red back ground paper that I brought into the kit later, the best friends came from the one cut out sheet, and the flower came from the die-cuts I gathered up. Added was the stars needed for the Top Smasher challenge.
The black glitter lettering and hearts was brought in for the Top Smasher challenge too, the red arrow came from some of the items I puled for the kit
 This page has attached to the red pattern background paper the booklet we got from the show. I attached the tickets that we received on it and a up-close picture of Isabelle all dressed up and ready to dance :) The journaling tag came from the same cut up paper as the Best friends tag, added a vellum tag for one of the sheets I had chosen for the kit. Added another star and some pick gems for the Top Smasher part of the challenge.

 See that tab-that tab (which is in pink for the Top Smasher challenge) opens to the page that has mention of the dance they are performing, hence the title of the 2 pages and :
 to a page that has another picture that pointed out Isabelle by way of some post it notes that I got in a package from Walmart that is from EK Success that has lots of goodies (note pad, post-its and stickers). Hidden under the tickets the name of the challenge and the date I smashed it.
 Bullet the write up with pink stickles. The pages were done in my green-eco smash book that I have dedicated to the grandkids functions. Just love how this turned out and it was great to do some smashing again. Now the 2nd challenge is a bit more trickery  and has for one of the ingredients a Shakespeare quote, so I'm off to Google to find one I like, and work from there. 

Thanks for stopping by today and seeing the view form my little corner of the world and don't forget to sign up for the goodie giveaway you need to comment on that post and become a follower: to enter for the blog follower giveaway there is a few weeks to go and I'm gathering stuff for the box each day.

    You did a SMASHING job, lol - funny how freeing it is to call it that & then scrapbook with abandon! Sounds like you nailed the challenge requirements plus used your kit - awesome!

  2. Awesome pages Tina. Is this challenge in one of the FB groups we're in? I haven't smashed in forever. I'm out of the loop!
