My book is not complete but I would like to share some of the pages I have started.
My first page is memories from my childhood with a quote about being on a journey in life. The bottom right photo is of my bedroom wall as a teen. It was covered with pictures from teen magazines. I figured I've been "smashing" since I was a teen, it just was on my wall back then.
I am a huge fan of Somerset Magazines - My favorites are Where Women Create; Somerset Life; Artful Blogging, Art Journaling and Mingle. Each time I get a new issue I cut out pictures from my previous issue and put them in my smash book. This page has pictures of covers from different issues.
This page is dedicated to me and my hubby. The picture of us was drawn by my brother's friend the year we were engaged. Finally after 20 years this picture now has a home. I found great quotes on love and marriage and the page already had a calender in the bottom corner. I put a heart around the 9th. Our wedding anniversary.
My faith page. I add any prayer cards and bible quotes that I collect.
My quotes page. Most of them I have found in my various issues of Somerset Magazines
Everything that makes me happy. This page is all about being happy. I have quotes on happiness and autograph cards from Gretchen Rubin the author of The Happiness Project.
My page is dedicated to my favorite job. That's being a mom. The Superwomen logo came from this years Mother's Day card from Jacob and Alexa. The picture on the top left is my favorite picture of me and my mom the women who taught me all I know about being a mom. I also have a Mary prayer card, she is also my model for motherhood.
These pages are not done. As I find quotes or pictures I will add them to my journal. I also have several pages that I have started but are not close to being finished. So far I have a page dedicated to my grandparents, fairies, butterflies, teacups, coffee, tulips and Harry Potter. All my favorite things. As I finish those pages I will be happy to share.
