Hiya! Here’s something I haven’t been able to participate in for quite a while…the Smeared & Smudged Member Blog Hop! It’s one of my goals this year to start participating in some of the hops and challenges that I used to love being a part of. Last year, many of those things got away from me. I hope to change that this year. This month, the challenge was “Anything Goes,” so I had no excuse not to play along.
I received my amazing winnings from the 31 Days of Halloween a few weeks ago, and I wanted to play with some of my new stamps. So I broke out the Occasions Grumpies and decided to use the spa Grumpie. Though it was a tough choice…I love so many of them!
I colored my Grumpie with alcohol markers, and my background was done with watercolors. The phrases are handwritten and from the Occasions Grumpies set. I don’t know if you have resolutions for 2014, but after relaxing with my family at home for 2 weeks…doing very little of anything besides enjoying each other’s company, I realized that that is something I really need to do more of.
Below is the full hop list. Please be sure to leave everyone some love! Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
Alison (that’s me!)
