"Don't smash until 1 in the morning." That was the last thing I heard before Collin went to bed last night. And I listened to his counsel because this girl needs her sleep but, man, once you start you can't stop... it stings. (name the movie)
Smash books are just like old-school scrapbooks but with rad design on the pages and a mix of all different products from tabs, to tape and journaling pads.
I didn't think they were that cool, at first, but once I started flipping through the pages and adding all the random stuff I've been holding onto for years, I changed my mind.
Why I love it? I already had stuff just sitting in Kolo boxes and Instax laying around so I enjoyed putting it in one place and writing about each little snip it.
This & That: All this stuff has just been sitting in a Kolo photo boxes so, like I said, I loved getting it out and writing about each piece.
Butterfly Confetti from the Coldplay concert, Metro ticket from Paris, an Instax of the girls' sitting at my dad's gravesite on his birthday, 2 cent postage stamp, Real Salt Lake soccer game ticket (the one where we saw David Beckham oohlala;), Eiffel tower tickets (we never did make it to the tippitty top), Avery's first carousel ride ticket, Instax of Mindy Gledhill singing at my birthday party.)
Instax from our drive up the canyon on Sunday. Avery and I picked leaves and glued them down. The tag includes things the girls' said. I just sat there while we drove and wrote all the random things they said. Including, "Look at all those powerful rocks!!"
Instax of Collin's softball game:
You guys, I'm kind of obsessed. Are you smashing?
I also love Amy Tan's mini book!! The Smashbooks might be out of stock so you should check out Amy Tan's book. It's so cute with all the different layered pages and the spine is sewn together. It's smaller and that could be less intimidating for some. But I love it and am going to dive into that next!
