My daughter became engaged over Christmas and boy am I excited! I made this quick little mini to capture our fun times at the big Bridal Show we attended a few weeks back. All my girls went with me...Erin (plus little Lukey) and Abby and Amanda (who is Abby's best friend-so that makes me Mama Sue to her as well!)
We wandered the bridal show, watched the fashion show, went to lunch at Red Robin's and then headed home. And of course as I type this I realize I should have added a Michaels receipt to this mini. LOL I made Abby and Amanda stop with me at Michael's and do a wee bit of couponing. Can't miss that opportunity when visiting the big city! Abby is NOT a couponer/crafter...but she did end up browsing the bridal section and I don't think she found it too painful LOL!
I did not make this too fancy schmancy. Just wanted to keep it simple so I would actually "get er done", kind of like those Smash Journals I have been seeing online. Hey, when I saw those Smash Journals, I realized that I started "smashing" over 40 years ago (oh my that was traumatic to do the math here). You know, all those scrapbooks back then-where you kept every movie ticket and taped each birthday candle to the pages too...no acid free tape or papers back then...
Symptoms of a "Smasher"
LOL....a crazy person (aka as Mom) that steals your name tag right off your shirt, keeps your event ticket, takes home a coaster from Red Robin and never goes anywhere without her camera! I confess.... camera!
You can watch this really cute video on Smash Journals HERE.!
I used some wonderful sentiments from Amber Ink to tie all the pages together along with some wonderful Bo Bunny Crush Valentine paper. I added a few Stampin Up rub ons, a little bling and Viola! Hope you enjoy this little peek into what is sure to be our wonderful adventure in 2011!
