A few ideas have gotten under my skin in the last year. Most of the bloggers (crafty ones anyway) that I follow have all started doing Becky Higgins’ Project Life in the last year (or in some cases I just started paying attention to it on their blogs). I was ready to dive in mid-2011… but I also really wanted Turquoise & it was sold out so I waited.
I have a confession… I am behind scrapbooking. VERY behind. I have 3 months of my son’s life documented & he turned 3 in November! I have plans & product for everything from birth through 2nd birthday (Nov 2010). So a 2011 Project Life would actually be kinda perfect. I haven’t even printed pictures since his 2nd birthday!!! Bad Mommy…. bad bad bad scrapping Mommy.
Ok, enough beating up on myself! I have started!!!
I have the physical Cobalt Kit already set up & ready to go for 2012. I picked out my Week 1 pictures, edited them and sent them for printing yesterday. More on that later.
THIS is my 2011 (ok – Nov 2010 thru Dec 2011 to be exact) book. For these pages I am using the digital files from Jessica Sprague in Turquoise to catch up! I have a handful of traditional 2011 pages already so my intent is to make these pages & print them to put into a traditional 12×12 book. That way if I have some extra pieces etc. I can squeeze them inside the weekly layouts. But by making these digitally I can also have books printed for both sets of Grandparents when I am all done. It took me most of my free time on Saturday to make up one page… yikes! But having far less time today (Sunday) I busted out not one, but six pages (3 weeks). Here are the weekly pages.
