This or That Smash Book

This or That Smash Book

Wow, I am so excited to be creating my 1st Smash book.
I have been wishing I was scrapbooking for awhile, but haven't had the time.
I think a Smash book is my answer!

I just love this kit!  
It is only $32 until the end of April.
You can order on my online store now...

Here is my title page

Here is my cover... not totally done yet... but started!

My Smash book is going to be an all about me book.

We don't take enough time to talk about ourselves and share our stories!
So, I am going to dedicate this Smash book to All about me...
hopefully my kids will understand who I am as a person and their mom!

10 Things I love about Stamps!!!

1. Versatile

2. Matching framelets

I used "All Dress Up" stamps 129174 and matching framelets 130101

I just bought personalized stamps with my children's names on for school, gifts, etc.
I also bought one that says 
Mrs. Campbell (for my students)
