Project Life!!

For Christmas my mom gave me my project life kit...
yup, she who gave me life, now gives me project life!
If you are not familiar with project life...
have you been living under the scrap booking rock?
I kid. I kid.  Check out THIS video and try not to tear up!
The kit I went with is the Turquoise kit...
but she has four kits, all equally fantastic.
I picked this one because the design matches well
with lots of paper I stole was given
from my mom by Stampin' Up. 
I am really sticking to the original concept of Project Life.
In other words, it is going to be more journaling and pictures
with less embellishing, designing, and artistic stuff. 
Don't get me wrong I have a whole Pinterest board
devoted to beautifully embellished Project Life pages,
but for me... 
 I want to strictly use it to document our daily life.
(hold me to that, girls!)
For example... this resent picture of Addy!
This is what happens when she has chocolate ice cream
30 minutes past her bedtime! 
She is too tired to find her mouth!
 I still hope to make other layouts full of pretty things,
but my hope is for Project Life to be our family legacy...
the book my grand kids will cherish!

And look... even my last page is already done!



  1. She is awfully cute :-). This is my first visit to your blog, so I took some time to browse through your earlier posts. I'm so glad I did that. This is a very pleasant place to visit and I will be back. I hope you have a great day. Blessings...Mary

  2. I'm starting to see the picture. But not totally getting it. It takes me at least a year to embrace something new like this. Just now starting OLW. :)The pic of Addy is so cute! Hope it makes a page. You need to keep me posted on how you like it.....But I'm with's all about the journaling....The STORIES!!!

  3. Wow, when did you find time to start. Looks good & I think if is a great idea. Love the pic of Addy. XOXO LaLa


Let's go make something,
