S'more - not just for eating

When I hear the word s'more, I visualize those great chocolatey, gooey campfire delights.  As you enjoy this mountain of decadence, the heated chocolate drips out and the marshmallow oozes out burning your finger from the heat.  But you savor every bite.  When it's gone, you make another because you only get to enjoy this treat around those late night summer campfires.

On this winter day, my heart was elated to find another s'more.  It might not be ooey, gooey, chocolatey, but it's still a great treat to explore!  Smore is an online flyer creator that can publish your flyers instantly via Facebook, email or embedding to a website or blog.  When you create your flyer, you can add text, photos, videos and audio.  You can choose from various design backgrounds and colors.  The most difficult element in creating a flyer is deciding what you would like to say.

The following video will walk you through a short tutorial on using smore:

Here is a completed smore flyer:
