Project Life week 2

I'm having so much fun with Project Life! As busy as life is right now it feels so good to still find the time to create. So here is week 2,

I love that I'm documenting all the little details of our daily life. The funny things Brianna says, the exciting (secret) news my best friend shared with me, and all the big changes happening in our lives right now. Thank you for looking!

Project life week 1

A week and a half into the new year and I have my first week of project life done! That's a good sign right? I'm going to do my best to keep up with it. Especially since my usual 12x12 scrapbooking has taken such a back seat in life. :(

I had SO much fun with this! Most of what I used came from my December Gossamer Blue kit with bits and pieces from my stash. The layout took a bit longer to finish than I was hoping for but I'm sure it'll speed up as I get more comfortable with Project Life. Thank you for stopping by!

One little word

About a week ago I was looking around the internet for project life examples when I stumble across Ali Edwards blog. I ended up finding a post on her One little word project. I debated the whole week about whether I should take her workshop or just try to focus on a word myself. In the end I decided that the workshop was well worth it to help keep my word at the fore front of my mind.

So the word I chose for this year is, Breathe. I thought of quite a few other words before landing on this one, patience, calm, relax, to me breathe seemed to encompass them all. Life has been stressful the last few months and I don't see it slowing down anytime soon. I want to remind myself when feeling stressed to stop and breathe. Also with baby number two on the way in April I want to slow down and appreciate the time I have left with Brianna as an only child. I want to breathe in life and stop rushing on to the next goal.

The workshop includes a prompt each month whether it be journaling, photo or scrap related to help bring your word into your life. The first prompt is to set intentions for yourself for each month of the year. Something to do with your word. I'm in the processes of writing out my intentions and doing the small scrappy part of this months prompt. Hopefully I will be able to share soon!

Project Life

The last few months I've been looking into Project Life. The more I read about it the more excited I got to try it. So for Christmas I asked for Becky Higgins page protectors to help get me started. I plan to use paper I have on hand, god knows I have enough of it! Here is my title page.

While looking at examples online I saw lots of pages with big photos split between multiple pockets. I loved the look and knew I had to use it! (Even if it did split my face in half!) I used scraps from my November Gossamer Blue kit. I'm looking forward to all the changes that 2013 is going to bring to our family, transitioning out of the army, moving across the country, and welcoming our new little girl! I hope project life with help me document all the little things that happen along the way.
