So, for my project today - I'm going back to April SMAK {...Me Documented} 
which is one of my fave kits.
It's full of gorgeous images, background stamps and sentiments, 
with a vintage touch.


I decided to make a little 'book' that can be shared with the family every night.
One can put in anything that they would want to share...
something that happened today.
a thought of the day.
a new love.
a goal in life.
Whatever that is to be shared... goes in this book.

At dinner time, we'd open it, and share our stories.


Pretty, isn't it?


I made this book using a cutting machine and a file found here
and I embellished it with these gorgeous stamps.
The papers are from Simple Stories, 
and used a mix of pigment ink and distress ink to give it an antique look. 
 I also used my Staz-On ink to stamp the film strip onto an acetate before adhering to the book.


The side view... totally looks like a book. 
You can even fill it up with 'thoughts' and keep it as a memoir in your bookcase, too.
A book of 'reflection'.

When you open the book up...


There's plenty of space to keep little notes :)

That's it! 
Hope that you liked my project today, 
and if you have some SMAK love to share - 
please post them to our Facebook wall! 
We'd love to see!

Alright - gonna go and enjoy the sunshine, so have a great weekend!
