I took the JUMP!!

Hi everyone, Hope your all doing well.. Well I did it.. I took the JUMP into the world of
 SMASHING
I'm really not sure what I'm doing yet, But hopefully Ill get the hang of it..
I think the hardest part of it will be the journaling.
As I have never done much of it.. Ive always had a hard time putting my thoughts on  paper.
Especially where my spelling and grammar is not that great.. But I'm going to give it a try..
I made my own book for now. Its a 6x6. I think the next one will be bigger.
Here is the cover
I used letter that Ive have in my stash for ages cant remember where they were from. I glued the little metal Life embellishment on to an old button, I kind of like that..
Here are my first pages.
Close up
I made the little envelope from a template I have.
I haven't written on the little tag yet will do that later.
This picture was taken years ago, Our one daughter Niki 
is not in it, Darn it.. Well that's it for today I have started two more pages that I will show you tomorrow when I have them done.. Thanks for stopping by and for all your lovely comments..
 hugs, Linda

Hey Linda - I am jealous - I need to take the plunge too. Your book is fabulous and please don't worry about spelling and grammar. I can't spell my own name without looking it up in the dictionary. I think I might try one of these. Really - you are doing a wonderful job!!!!!Sandy

Awesome Linda. I haven't gotten into the whole SMASH books yet, but I think with my new news.. of me being pregnant with my 4th child,this would be a great way to journal and add things day to day along the next 7 months and after. I think it would be great to look at all the different things going on each month and be able to savor them forever. Great job on this Linda.
Hugs:)
