Yes Lunie, please post!!!!
And thanks for the compliment.

Also maybe you can help guide me…
Actually anyone can answer this question or give suggestions.

I am starting to overthink my Smash book.
I keep thinking that my books need to have a “theme”.
For example my first page was about my weekend highlights.
So now I feel like the entire book should be dedicated to that. BUT I have ideas rolling around in my head that I want to add to my book that have nothing to do w/ that.

I was thinking of making the book random but I don’t know if it’s a good idea.

I have a Tom Hardy 2 page spread planned – that’s how random my thoughts are right now, LOL! Plus I have printed out some random pics that I want to include that, again, have nothing to do w/ any of the other pages so far.

So I am torn between doing that (making it random but still including daily weekly highlights as I see fit) or buying another one and dedicating each to one topic.

What did you do (or plan to do for those who haven’t started)?

I know it can be anything you want it to be but I'm afraid! LOL!!!!

You're so funny. Here are the Smashbook Rules, I made for myself. Rule no. 1. Do not over think the Smashbook. It is supposed to be fun. I would not theme the Smashbook, but you can do what you want, as long as it doesn't stress you out. That's my rule no. 2. (no stress). Now, they have a "wedding" themed book and a baby themed book and I think, an international/travel.. and I would dedicate one of those, but my Smashbook No. 3 rule is that my Smashbook is about things I like, quotes, for instance... "Top Ten" is a great one... put down your top songs that you love currently (don't try to think of your favorite song of all time... too much pressure, lol. On the same page, your favorite movies, whatever. Fill it up doodle/collage/grafetti style with all your favorites and it will be done when you can't fit anymore on that page. I have an NFL page because I am a big NY Giants fan, and I add something to that every time the Giants play. ...So, I like your idea of random... That's fun and that's what my Smashbook is to me and that's why I love it. I do LO's and Project Life and they are more thinking and work and those I stress over getting them perfect but I LOVE my Smashbook's simplicity and I did make some mistakes when I first started but they can all be overcome because I can smash something right down on top of it or even rip out a page. So my Smashbook vote for you is random. I also find this style of random art to be beautiful. I'll see about posting a pictures.
