My Imagine-ation Monday

Today is My Imagine-ation Monday and the Letter of the Day is I.  I tried to think out the box for this one and decided to Smash it!  I've had my Smash book for probably a year and it's been sitting on my desk collecting dust and odds and ends from different things I've been doing.  So I decided to use the letter "I" literally, so this is a "I" Love project.

I'm still a horrible picture taker, but think I'm getting better!  lol  I did use the Artiste and the Forever Young cartridges.  The "I's", the hearts and bow are with the Artiste.  The image of the woman is from the Forever Young cartridge.  The hardest part for me to do a Smash book is that I'm a major chunky scrapper!  I love big bulky flowers and embellishments and it was hard to for me to scale down the bulk.  I did get a couple bows and buttons on there, but that's about all the bulk I did.

When I first started scrapbooking I used a computer to print out all my journaling and wording on my layouts.  When my son graduated from high school I made him a scrapbook from birth to his graduation.  He did love it, but gave it back to me and told me he would like to have my writing rather than from the computer.  So since then I've tried to make a point to use my own writing, but it's a lot of pressure!!!  lol  I've just come to the conclusion that life isn't perfect and so my journaling doesn't need to be perfect either.  I am only human.

I did have fun doing this and have some of my loves.  I'm going to keep going with the these of all things I love throughout this Smash book.  I have a couple others now that I can use for other things and I'm sure they'll be full of all kinds of different things.  I did have fun with rub-ons too, I haven't used them in years and they were great for fill ins.

So I hope you enjoyed My Imagine-ation Monday project and I'm sure I'll be talking to you soon!  I'm still getting my projects ready for the 100 Cartridge Hop this weekend, it will be awesome!!

What a great idea! I bought a Smash Book a month ago to use for card and page ideas I like. It is weird for me to have everything cluttered. I like the idea and use of the book, but it like organization. TFS your project!
