Project Life - Week 1

Hey Everyone! Today, I am taking a break from my December Daily posts to share week 1 from my Project Life. If you are unfamiliar with this project and the details of it, you can find all of the information here on Becky Higgins' website.

As many of you know, I LOVE to scrapbook, but with all of the responsibilities and obligations I have each day and with my new photography business, I'm finding it harder and harder to have the time to sit down at my scrap table, pull a picture from over a year ago and pull together all of the products to make a fabulous layout each day. Back in the old days, I would send my 35 mm film to the print shop, pick up my prints and throw them in a photo book and scrap my favorite pictures. But these days, with digital photography, it's just not feasible for me to print every picture that I take. So, this project is perfect for me. It allows me to stay up to date with recording the everyday happenings and I can throw in my favorite pictures and memorabilia from the week. And if I feel like it, I can scrap a page and throw that it in there too. It's turning out to be a great project that provides just the right flow for me, creatively.

So, without further ado, I'm sharing my week one spread for Project is a look at the full week....

Another thing that I love about this project is that I can easily add pictures that I've taken from my Instax Mini - LOVE THAT! Here is a closer look at the first page....feel free to click on the picture to read the journaling.
Here is a closer look at the second page... Another think that I am loving is that I can easily throw in thank you cards and little art projects that Peyton has made. Next week, when I share week two, I will show you guys how I'm saving all of Peyton's wonderful creations that she brings home from pre-school (you can see those projects peeking into the picture below on the right hand side). Becky Higgins has some wonderful products that make it easy to stay organized with documenting the everyday.

Thank you so much for stopping by today! Be sure to check back tomorrow where I will be sharing more December Daily. I also have another fun art project that Peyton and I made last night to be shared in the near future. Have a Great Day!

This looks awesome! Project life scares me for some reason... but it seems like the best thing for a non-paper scrapper to get "paper" scrapping. :) Hope you all are doing well! Can't wait to see more December Daily... I don't know how you find the time!

I think this system really works for you. Documenting life this way really showcases the beautiful photos you take! :)
