Smash! Loves Rubberstamps Weekly Challenge!

Good Morning!
It is Tuesday morning once again, so that means it is time for another challenge at Loves Rubberstamps.  This week is everyone's favorite challenge.... Anything Goes!

Our fabulous SPONSOR is:

I have had this idea for quiet some time and I finally sat down to bring it to life.  We are planning to build a new home next year and are starting to gather ideas and finalize our floor plan.  So I wanted to make a smash book to add our ideas in when we find something.  I used chipboard as the cover and it is 8.5 x 11.  I used  My Minds Eye Paper  for the background and embellished it with a sewing measuring tape, washi tape, button, key and hole, tags and some metal embellishments.  The image is Kenny K - Home ImprovementI can tell you, I don't look anything like her, but I thought the image was perfect for a Home Smash book.  lol...Of course, I gave her a pink drill because every lady needs a pink one!  I bound it with a Bind it All.

Copics used: 
Hat:  Y11, Y15, Y17
Hair: E25, E29, E31, E33, E50
Skin: E000, E00, E13, E21
Top/Socks:  BG10, BG07
Shorts:  B91, B93, B97, W3
Boots:  E40, E41, E43, E44, E49
Drill:  RV10, RV14, RV17 (because every girl needs a pink drill)

The inside is made out of file folders that have been cut down to fit into the chipboard.  I labeled them for each room and added some extra tags and pages in between to allow more space.  You can see in this one, it is the Main Bathroom.  I have my colors picked and I want to use a dresser as a sink.  So I have printed a picture of what I want.  I just staple the pictures in so it is easy peasy!

Just another shot of the inside cover.  I added a few places to hold some extra stuff until I get to file it away on the right page.
