Watermelon Summer Smash 2011 journal…

They always say that what every you make for others you never make for yourself??? Can you believe I have never made a journal for my daughter before? I feel almost sad, but I have made tons of mini albums and regular albums for her but not just for her…Junque journals smash books…are everywhere and my daughter loves to collect and journal = watermelon summer smash journal. I will be purchasing some masking tape at our local dollar store. I will encourage teach my daughter how to tape decorate stamp colour doodle and create folds inside her journal, to keep any loose papers flyers tags…ect.. she may find and acquire this summer. She will be going to a new school next year , a hard challenge for anyone to face. I am hoping that this will be her ice breaker…take a look , get to know me….let’s start here…I know what you did last summer…watermelon smash style…
