Wedding Smash Book

So I've been working on a smash book with stuff from our wedding. I feel like I'm channeling my junior high self, which is what it looks like. LOL! I am happy to say that all the memorabilia is now in one place and I can throw away all the extras. These days I am all about decluttering, but I didn't want to just toss everything. So now it has a home, and the book (which I finished in record time) is easy to grab if I want to reminisce.

I used the notebook that I originally used to plan the wedding, since I thought that would have a little more meaning. I decorated the front and then went to work on getting everything inside. Here are the first few pages, I'll share some more later.

I'm not sure I'm sold on the smash books yet. Maybe cause mine looks like a 10 year old did it?!

I do think it would be a great way to document fun, everyday things about the kids. I might make one for each of them and fill it with their little quirks, then I can keep up with it and write down the little things about them that make me smile.

In my research, I've seen some awesome journal style smash books. Unfortunately, I'm not sure my life is interesting enough to occupy a full book! LOL!

If you've seen some out of the ordinary uses for them, please share!
