inspired everywhere

This has been a very busy week with our big boy turning 8 and our middle son turning 6. I cannot believe how time flies.  I have been busy yes as mommy but i have also been journaling in the wee hours that i have time to myself.  I definitely do not look in the mirror the next day  lol.  i wanted to share some works i completed at the end of may.  these were little smash books for both my sons teachers for their end of the year present, which was greatly loved and fawned over. I was just thrilled they even new what they were, i think they were a smash(no pun.. you know what i mean).  I came up with the idea when i was browsing my local scrapbook store that i just discovered(which i had no idea was here for 2 years, oh the wasted time  hahaha  www.stickledpink.com ).  I didn't have much cash on me to buy the one from the store so i set out looking through all my scrap booking materials.  so these are filled with lots of goodness, stamps, pockets, postcards, note cards etc.  i actually used a catalogue that was made with very good paper and i used that as my base for the pages.  I know my binding could use some work, but this is a start for me.  Definitely my first time trying anything like this.  so i hope you get inspired, because i know i was.  Now go and be CREATIVE...Lilian
