|Loving even the rough times with Project Life!|
|Project Life is a place to document all those little details|
Although I am known to fall behind on lengthy projects (just ask my grad school thesis advisor), I unbelievably stayed completely caught up on doing 2 page spreads every week for the first 6 months. I felt like I deserved an award! Then the summer hit and I had my first taste of feeling 'behind'. For the first time my craft room began to evoke stress rather than dissolve it. So I embraced the flexibility of the project and modified it to accommodate my busy summer by completing 2 2-page spreads per month instead of 4.

By the end of summer I was back into my PL groove and looking froward to an exciting trip to NYC. I've loved scrapping trips PL style, and even my smallest local trips get their own beefed-up section in my PL. It seems like PL is just conducive to being creative with travel pics. Heck, Becky Higgins herself even tweeted and posted to FB my idea for incorporating QR codes into my Disney PL (I still sometimes think I dreamed that!)
|My first QR code in Project Life links to a video from Disney World|
|Lots of pictures and lots to say about NYC!|
|I used lots of the Abroad collection from Studio Calico and paper I bought at the Empire State Building|
|Elvin, our Elf on a Shelf got his own 2-page spread|
|Christmas makes for an easy PL because so much pretty ephemera is all around us!|
|A 2-page spread per week, plus extra spreads for vacations and special occasions leads to a pretty think Project Life!|
|I can't believe I did all this in 1 year!|
