Who knew it could be so enjoyable?!? I started Project Life on week 29 but at least I finally started it! I planned on doing it all year to get back to the basics of why I scrapped in the first place. Life got in the way and I never did more than an intro page.
So now that I have some free time and we are busy having lots of summer fun together, I decided it was a good time to start. And I loved doing it!!!!! Rather than scrap/document every little thing we did during the week, I made the two pages about our trips to the beach. It was a big deal for me to make it there (thank you elevator), so it was the focus of my happy memories for the week.
I've always loved making mini albums. I was on the Maya Road design team a few years ago and loved working with all their cute chipboard albums. I also enjoyed teaching mini album classes at Scrapbook Oasis over the years. The PL method of scrapping reminds me of making mini albums because you are working on a smaller "canvas" and you can decorate the photos and use lots of embellishments. I really enjoyed this and I plan to keep it going. But I ain't committing to making up the missing 28 weeks!
I used my last two Studio Calico kits to make these pages. I found it way easier to have a set number of products that all went together to work with. It made it much less over whelming this way. So I think I will keep using their kits for this project with a few extra goodies I already have laying around. This might keep me on a scrap budget too!
Summer is great over here and I hope all my blog friends are enjoying it too. I feel good, but have a long way to go still. Two steps forward, one step back as Mr. Doc says. I continue to appreciate all the kindness and love that has been shown to me and my family during this difficult time. It has made it so much more bearable and reminds me of what is important in life.
Love and happiness to all!!!!! Suzy
