Smash book Super Hero Challenge!

This week's challenge was set by Kage and was to create a page about what powers we would have if we were superheros. She had the added catch that we had to draw ourselves! Now, I am totally pants at drawing so this challenge really was just that, a challenge!

I had the Studio Calico skyscraper stamp that I thought would work and then when I found this page in the red Smash book it was perfect. My body was a Gorjuss stamp that I bought recently and I thought the boots were just perfect for a super hero! Plus she had long hair that I could blend in with mine on the photo. The cute shooting stars are from a Paperchase sticker set. The title is made with some lovely sparkly Thickers.

The two little monsters are my boys terrorizing the town! The Pow pops up to reveal my powers, which are: 
  • flight
  • invisible forecefield
  • cloak of invisibility
  • ability to stop time
  • ability to be in two places at once! 
All of which are useful powers for any Mum! I hope you like it and apologies for the terrible photos on my carpet. I really need to work on my presentation skills!

My bucket list!

Over on Smash*ing UK we are running weekly Smash book challenges which I have completed neglected to upload onto my blog! The first challenge was set by Louise Wilson and it was for us to create our Bucket List. I have to admit that I have never really had a bucket list and as I have no wild desires to jump out of a plane or swim with dolphins, this challenge kept me puzzling for a while (which is all good!). In the end I realised that most of the things that I would like to do involve travel in one way or another, so with that in mind I set to work. It so happened that DoCrafts had just bought out there All Aboard range which would be perfect for this project! The little suitcase was cut using my birthday toy, a Silhouette Cameo. 

I'm  not sure that you can read the tags, but they say:
  • To meet one of my penpals - this map has button markers for some of my penpals against the countries they live in. 
  • Places I want to visit: American road trip, Italy (again), Japan, Hawaii (yes, some of these tags may be in the wrong place but they weren't all on the map!)
  • Attend a Tim Holtz class.
There is one more tag that I need to add to that suitcase, and that is to be able to ride on the Orient Express. But having seen the prices, I think that might be a bit of a pipedream!

Anyway, I hope you like it, and please leave a comment to let me know you stopped by!
