My take on Smash Book

Hello dear bloggers! I am feeling BETTER at last and wanted to give you a quick peek at an ongoing project I am working on this summer. A few months ago I decided I wanted to document happy summer days in some way but thought that doing layouts and taking enough material with me in my luggage for these layouts would be quite a pain.. So I opted for a summer smash book... BUT.. I wasn´t happy with the smaller Smash book.. I bought the XL Pocket Smash. It´s pages are almost a 12´´ x 12´´size if not bigger which is giving me loads of space for loads of fun pics I´m taking as I go along! The whole family is enjoying flipping through and by the time my husband reaches us on the island he will have a detailed record of what we girls have been up to.. which hasn´t been an awful lot due to my unfortunate surgery! I will paste a few pics of some of the pages and the basic material I packed up with me! Later on I will probably post a video with a flip through of the whole project so you can see the final result! Enjoy and summer kisses to all!

Hola amig@s blogeros! Por fin me encuentro mejor y quise enseñaros un proyecto que estoy trabajando este verano. Hace unos meses decidí que queria documetar los felices momentos de verano pero haciendo LO y llevando suficiente material en la maleta para hacerlos supondria un gran probelma.. así que opté por un Smash Book.. pero no el smash book común sino el que es EXTRA grande! Se llama Pocket smash y las hojas son casi mas grandes que una lamina de 30 x 30! Lo he estado rellenando de fotitos divertidas y cuando ya se junta mi maridin con nosotros en la islita podrá ver todo lo que nosotras chicas hemos hecho.. que no ha sido mucho dado la cirugía que tuve que hacer! Pondré algunas fotos y el material basico que me lleve conmigo para trabajar. Mas adelante creo que haré un video pasando las hojas para que podais ver el resultado final! Seguid disfrutando del verano! Besitos a tod@s!

I am not sure I will leave the front cover like this but I like it so far.
No estoy segura si dejaré la tapa así pero de momento me gusta.

I started off documenting my daughter´s end of school and extra curricular activities end of year festival which marked the beginning of summer. 
Empecé documentando los fesitivales de fin de curso de mi hija que practicamente es cuando empezó el verano para ella.
These Smash book pages were very simple large notebook pages which I dressed up with some of the beautiful papers from the EP Everyday Eclectic Collection I'm using. 
Estas hojas eran bastante simplecitas como hojas de cuaderno. Usé papeles de la collecíon Eeveryday Eclectic de EP para decorarlas.

A trip to Mac Donalds.. we have to celebrate the simple stuff right?
Una pequeña excursíon al Mac Donalds.. tenemos que celebrar todas las cosas pequeñas verdad?

The most important page perhaps..? The day we boarded the plane to go to Malta! Laura had been counting the days forever!
La pagina mas importante quisas? El día que subimos al avíon y nos fuimos a Malta! Laura llevaba contando los día desde hace mucho tiempo!

A little scrap therapy and a short trip to some local gardens to visit the ducks and the peacock.
Un poqo de scrap terapia y una visita a unos jardines cercanos para dar de comer a los patitos!

Can´t forget to use washi! I have a date one which is coming in quite handy!
No se puede olvidar el Washi! Tengo uno para poner fechas que es super practico!

I just love this picture!
Me encantó esta foto! 

Here are some very basic things I took with me!

Scrap Therapy


Hello dear blogger friends, here I am with another project which has helped me in so many ways this week. I had to undergo a little surgery in my mouth (wisdom tooth extraction) but this one was wicked..!! Doc himself said he had never seen anything the likes of it.. 
So whilst on slow and very painful recovery I started and finished a project I had been dying to get my hands on ever since I missed out on a workshop a couple of months ago. It´s inspired by Elena of Pega Papel o tijeras who was in Madrid for a day and was giving a course on how to make an album ´´house´´. I was frustrated I had missed it but had been playing with the idea of giving it a shot on my own.. and here is the result which I am SO proud of! It turned exactly the way I wanted it.. perhaps even better! And it helped me keep my mind off the pain a bit! 
This house still does not have an owner.. so to all my dear Maltese clients.. make the most of delivery free charges whilst I am here in Malta! You can make small orders as well.. I´ll be more than happy to please! ;)

Hola querid@s amig@s bloggeros! Tuve que ser operada de una malvada muela de juicio.. y vaya muela! El cirujano dijo que no habia visto algo asi en su vida! Así que mientras me estoy recuperando lentamente entre dolor y dolor (porque duele que no veas!) hice este proyecto que tenia en la cabeza desde hace mucho tiempo, desde que Elena de Pega Papel o Tijeras visitó Madrid y no pude asistir a su taller.. pero ví lo que tenia planeado y sabia que tenia que intentarlo por mi cuenta.. y el resultado.. FANTASTICO! Me encantó hacerlo y me ayudo a no pensar en el dolor mientras estaba en ello. Espero que os gusté! 

The roof of the house lifts up to reveal the mini album inside which can hold ten 10X11cm photos and has space for journaling as well. 

The theme is an open one although I think it would be ideal for a love story of how a couple met etc.. The papers are vintage romantic and are a perfect match!
