Someday Dreams Smashbook Layout #2 and a free digi too

I love to color big.
Doing a nice little image for a card is great, quick and easy; but I miss the good old coloring book days when I had a full sheet of paper to color. So, this little smashbook has been great in so may ways for me. I have plenty of room to print out full sized images and color and embellish till my hearts content. Just absolutely love it!
If you haven't tried a smashbook yet, I say go for it and give one a try.  And there's still a few more days to sign up for the smashbook giveaway too. So, keep your fingers crossed and you might get lucky.

For today, I did a really cute little one pager.

I just love this chair.
It's so unique.
I'd pick different colors, pattens, and material but the over all idea is great.
So much better than a plain black chair for a crafty room.
So this chair gets a whole page in my Someday Dreams Smashbook.

The best part is this cute little chair came with a set of how to instructions, yay!
So, I added a little folder to my page and slipped the instructions in for later.

Smashbook Layout and a Digi

I've come to realize a few thing while making my first layout in my Someday Dream Home Smashbook.
First, I have a lot of magazines. I mean tons. I was a bit shocked at how many I have amassed over the years. I think this project was in the making long before I decided to glue it to paper, lol.
A little piece of my collection
I started collecting so many pages for my  book that I had to start sorting them in file folders.
I'm still not finished going through all of my magazines and I think I'm going to need several smashbooks to store my collection of favorite photos.
Filed for later

The second thing I realized is that I really want to redecorate my entire house now. 
I have the biggest urge to finish my basement and convert our garage into a huge dining / living room. I doubt my husband would go for the last part but I could see myself getting excited one day while he's gone and start tearing a hole in the wall between our living room and garage. I mean we could just by a shed to house his motorcycle in, right? And cars can be parked on the street. I know, my story still has some holes in it, but a girl can dream. And since we're dreaming maybe I could just make it a huge craft room.

But anyways,
I started my first layout and decided that I would do the bedroom first. I've held on to one favorite magazine since 2007 because of a beautiful bedroom picture. I think this one photo started my collection, and it only seemed natural to start my project with it.

It's a beautiful pink shabby chic room. Layers of romantic bedding, cutesy lamps, and old wooden shutters as a headboard. I fell in love with this room so many years ago and I love it more and more as I grow older. I've imitated the room many times over, and amassed a huge collection of Rachael Ashwell quilts while doing so. As well as some other well loved romantic shabby chic decor.
Favorite corner of my bedroom

I still haven't decided how to decorate my pages yet. Just a collage of all my pictures or tons of over the top embellishments. Maybe a little bit of both.

One thing I do know, is that I'm going to fill the pages and add lots of Cuddlebugs along the way.

Dreams to Come

Hello everyone,
Thought I'd share a little bit about my Smashbook idea with you guys.

I have my book.

And I have tons of decorating, diy, storage, and all around pretty home; books and magazines.

All purchased not by subscription but hand picked for the beauty within.
Dozens of stunning photos that I love.
And at one point thought to myself, I'd like to do that.
But as time passed the reading material piled up on a shelf and the pictures within became just a memory if not completely forgotten.

So what I've decided to do is use my Smashbook as a gigantic scrapbook of my Someday clippings from these wonderful books.

Someday when I have enough time
Someday when I have enough space
Someday when I have enough money
I want to do this.

A little book full of my favorite picture all of things that I would love to try.
A book of dreams.
Some of them might even come true.

My first set of pages will be coming soon.
And they'll be accompanied by a stunning and romantic new digi.
