Project Life 2012 Title Page

I am SO excited about capturing our everyday with the Project Life plan this year. It’s a simple way to capture our “boring” everyday that might normally pass by without a second glance. Every moment with my kids is precious to me. My oldest turns 10 this year - TEN. I swear I’m was still 21. 

Before my husband’s great grandmother passed away she wrote down tons of memories on notebook paper. In her own handwriting. I can’t tell you how much I loved reading through those imagining what life must have been like for her. Imagining what she must think of the world now. How much more amazing would it have been to have photos, scraps of paper, packaging etc to go along with all those amazing stories. 

This is why I’m doing Project Life. For me, for them, for their kids, and their kids’ kids.

I bought page protectors and everything else I’m using is either printable cards or products from my stash. For more info on how to make this successful or how others have done it I love

Lisa, Liz, and Marcy’s PL posts.

Here it is - the start of something great

Those are actual photo strips - I scanned them and then pulled out each individual picture in Photoshop so that 2 would fit in a slot and printed them on 4x6 photo paper.

Awesome first page- I'm also going without the kit. As overstocked as I am on all craft supplies, I can't justify getting what I can make and customize myself. Thanks for the links for ideas!

I got sucked in too. I'm blaming Marcy. Hopefully mine will be half as pretty as yours! :-) It better be since I just lugged all those page protectors back from the States! Wishing you a Happy 2012!
