I started Project Life half way through the year in 2012 and very quickly fell head over heels with the process. I love, love, love the simplicity of this memory keeping method. I love that it is all laid out for me and all I have to do is slip in photos and add a bit of journaling.
I love that my family will have these memories for always....the every day memories of how we lived our lives that year. There was no question in my mind that I would continue Project Life in 2013. Some things will stay the same and some will change:
- I will continue to use Becky Higgin's 12x12 album with corresponding Design A Photo Pocket Pages.
-Last year I used the Turquoise Core Kit and I liked it, but didn't love it. I'm excited about the new Seafoam Core Kit and am currently waiting for mine to be delivered in the next couple of days.
-I will be sharing my pages weekly on the blog. I didn't do that last year because I started so late in the year.
-I want to simplify even more. I will still occasionally use washi tape, stamps, and foam stickers to embellish my pages, but I want to have a more cohesive and less scattered look to my album.
I am excited to get started on this year's album. I inherited my love of memory keeping from my mom who always felt that family photos once a year and scrapbooks of every milestone in our lives was important. It's important to me too. Those family photos are some of the only things we have remaining of my dad and if anything ever happened to Andy or I, I would want my kids to have those important family photos and scrapbook albums of our time together as well.
So cheers to Project Life 2013! I'm hoping to share my title page with you next week!
