SEI Challenge with Abby #1

Hello my dear followers and viewers! It is time for a new challenge! and with the new year come new things and some changes to the formal Gaby Abby Challenges with SEI. Due to schedule conflicts and newly acquired commitments Gaby will no longer be able to play with me on these challenges. She has become a designer for a few teams and I wish her the best on those new teams. Don't forget to go visit her to see her new adventures!! Gaby Creates

With that said, I want to also let you know that SEI sent things for 4 giveaways. I have changed the format of the challenges. Challenges will be every other week with one price per month. You can participate both weeks and will be entered for the drawing twice. The challenge dates for this month are:

January 10th and January 24th

So, without further ado, the theme for this week is:

LAUGHTER/SMILE anything with a smile or 
even a phrase that contains the words

This time around SEI sent me the beautiful collection "with all my heart". Like with all their other collections this one is also very elegant!!! It has glittered, pearl foiled and embossed papers!!! Click on the link to see the detail of each paper the collection has.

I created again a NON-Cricut layout. I love doing this because it lets me play more with the paper and embellishments. I can truly showcase the beauty of the collection!
I am a designer for Sassy Lil Sketches and I used their first sketch of the year!! If you decide to use this sketch also, you can enter both challenges!! 
Follow the link for the sketch!

What I used:
Border punches and twine
Stamp sentiment from Joanns

All the embellishments come in the assortment pack!!! How cool is that?!!?

And I want to thank Sandra from 365 Days Of Cricut for creating a card for this challenge!!! She will be joining me for some (or maybe all ;)) of the challenges!!

I LOVE it!!!!! I know all you Cricut LOVERS will love this too!!!!!!! 
All her paper is also from the "with all my heart" collection!!
and that PK face!! CUTE!!! Please go visit Sandra for all the details on her card!!

Here are the rules for the challenge:

*** Link your original post with project up to Mr. Linky
*** Mention that your project is for SEI Challenges with Abby
*** Deadline for this challenge will be Friday, February 4th!
*** Project of your choice MUST be about 
SMILING/LAUGHTER or even using the actual words!
*** The most important, HAVE FUN!!!

and the Price for the month of January?!

12x12 with all my heart paper collection assortment

and to make this even more exciting, EVERY entry will receive two 
Kich N Bleus Designs!!! 

So everyone is a WINNER!!!!!

We have a Design Team Call!!
