I'm a Smasher!!!!



Hello my craftin' peeps!
I've started a new hobby in the papercrafting world and I LOVE it! A few weeks ago I was on the ridiculously talented Krista Smith's blog, which I just LOVE, and she had a Smash Book Blog Hop.. so scroll through her post and seriously was completely inpired! After I picked my jaw up off my desk, I ran out and got one! Then there it sat.. for literally 2 weeks!!! I kept opening my craft armoire and looked at it..pouted and closed the door. I just didn't have time... until last night!!!!!

I just want to share the reason WHY I love the idea of this. I scrapbooked for a while I have 2 books not in order.. just random pages. Well I got completely overwhelmed, having so many pictures and it took me forever to finish a layout. The Smash Book is such a great idea because you don't have to put pictures, use stamps! I also love the fact that I can have this journal to be about me! What I like, what I don't like, poems, books, family, stamps, goals, accomplishments.... anything!

So here are my first pages!! I used California Girl and Smashy Curl from Saturated Canary.
 I hope you like them!
I hope to post a Smash page once a week.












Happy Smashin'!
