I can remember being about a month or so into Project Life, I wasn't loving it, but I knew once I started, I wanted to finish. Then finally about the third month into it, I found my groove. So here are the last two weeks of my completed Project Life!
Week 51 - we tried the big girl bed, school program.
A couple of closeups...for this week I went through all of my scrap pieces of pattern paper. I have loved the white grid cards, but wanted to change it up...and that's what's great about "making" project Life work for you...make it simple some weeks, add a little more pattern paper another...your choice/style.
Love that October Afternoon Farm Girl cherry washi tape!
Here is the other side of Week 51...a few more pictures from the program, our trip to the big mall, and visiting my sister and brother-in-law for our Christmas get together.
Some closeups...I used some bits from Basic Grey, Glitz, Lily Bee Stamps.
Here's week 52!! I decided to try out one of my new protector styles I just bought from Becky Higgins. It is G and I really really like the look of it! It was a challenge because so different and one good reason to stick with the same style...but really fun to change it up. For this week, I used what I had on my table...I had just finished some work with Basic Grey's Soleil, so that is what I used with a mix of October Afternoon and some older Studio Calico.
Some closeups again...yes that is a very overdone bagel...and had to go in here...Christmas Eve was chaotic with the energy from Emma, trying to cook...my sister was here helping...we were visiting, talking, having fun...I needed something else from the store...Dennis totally forgot about his bagel...which by the way I had accidentally thrown away his first one! One of those you had to be there...but had to go in here!
Only a few photos are the same as what I used in December Daily...but the majority are the "other" things that happened...like getting outside for some fresh air on Christmas day...
The other side of Week 52. The new style protector slowed me down a little...but it really was a nice change.
So here is the big, chunky Project Life for 2012. One thing I don't do...scrap flat...Ha! And that carries over into Project Life. The last page there is the plastic envelope from Becky Higgins...it holds most of Emma's artwork from school and home in there. I date stamp on the back of them, and just tuck them in.
And this made my day seeing Emma looking through it :)
I would love to get by with just scrapbooking...but I think Project Life really is important to get life documented without missing the details...plus it is a great place to keep memorabilia. It is definitely a guilt-free way to scrap...if you do it in a way that works for you.
