Project Life

I know, I said I probably wasn't going to do it.... well, that I wasn't going to commit at least. But six weeks in and I am loving doing my own version of Project Life.

For me, that just means that I scrapbook a two page spread once a week with photos and journaling about the week, with minimal embellishments. So far I've just been using supplies I already have.

Here's what my week six page looks like:

A few things that are making this project doable for me:
1. Simple templates. I love the simple blocked design and how quick it is to just drop photos in.
2. My phone. A lot of the pictures I use are are taken with my phone, which has a pretty decent camera. I use dropbox to transfer the photos from my phone to my laptop in order to use them in my layout.
3. Sunday. I set aside some time on Sunday afternoons (or evenings) for doing this so it's become just part of my routine.

What I love the most about this is that I'm capturing and recording so many little tidbits... things that wouldn't warrant an entire scrapbook page, but things I want included in our family's story. I love that I finally have an organized way to record and document big and little moments of our lives.

I'm so glad you are doing this! Your pages are beautiful as always, but best of all I think it's so neat all of the fun things you will record this year! I like the format you are using. I might have to try this one day too.
