I didn't really know anything about SMASH until a few weeks ago. I was asked by Sar at Scrapbook Savvy if I would like to give it a go. "Why not" was my thought. I have to say that I LOVE IT !!! It's right up my alley. There is no thinking, no structure (not that I have any in my scrapbook pages), I can put whatever I want on the page and not have to worry if everything "matches".
It reminds of when I was younger and kept a diary. Everything went in there - but I didn't realise back then that was a form of scrapbooking.
I thought it would be great to finally get some of the 1600 photos from our USA holiday into a book. We went to 2 years ago, but the thought of scrapping so many (not to mention the cost of doing that many photos!!) had put me off a little - until now.
Here's some of my work in progress. It might not be right, but it's how I want to remember our holiday. I think SMASH*ing is going to be my number 1 go to way of scrapping any type of holiday, occassion now as it's just so easy. These 8 pages took only 2 hours. It can take me 2 days just to work out what paper to use on a LO.
Anyway, hope you like it
The start of our adventure :)

And finally, what NYC is all about to us :)
As you can see, not a lot of papers. Just wanting to get everything down that our holiday meant to us as a family.
Can't wait to keep filling the pages.
