Crafty With The Kids

I'm just tickled to see my kids enjoying a hobby that I love so much. So, imagine my delight when they both want their very own smash book like Mommy. So about a week and a half ago I set all my projects aside and made two mini smash books for the kids. Theirs are 5x7 in size and perfect for them to"smash" all the goings on in their lives. Some nights we sit together and all work in our own books. I can't get enough of it!

 This one is Gracie's, very girly and fun. I made a pen holder out of ribbon
 On the inside flap I placed this envelope for her to keep all her little do-dads she is "smashing" with.
 This is her opening page
 I used lots of odds and ends of pattern paper that I have had around forever. (FYI Its a good way to use up old stuff so you have a good excuse to get some things!)
 This one is Mr Quintin's. His is the same just used Boy paper.

I do have a Bind-It-All and I love it! I use it all the time. You are always welcome to use it if you like.
