I am really enjoying this project. I took me a while to get started, but it all started falling into place late last night. :)
Here is the cover of my SmashBook that I am using. There is a nifty pocket in the back to put my worksheets.
Here are a few fun supplies I picked up at Target this morning that I can't wait to use!
It took me a while to fill out the worksheets, and for a few minutes I felt kinda stressed, but I went and watched some My Little Pony and got some perspective. I'm not deep or philosophical. I'm pretty laid back and I like cute things. So my worksheet is a true reflection of me (also with the lack of sentences, just words and phrases, that's how I think). I also had to start with the last question and work my way to the first...
