Project Life!

A few ideas have gotten under my skin in the last year.  Most of the bloggers (crafty ones anyway) that I follow have all started doing Becky Higgins’ Project Life in the last year (or in some cases I just started paying attention to it on their blogs).  I was ready to dive in mid-2011… but I also really wanted Turquoise & it was sold out so I waited.

I have a confession… I am behind scrapbooking.  VERY behind.  I have 3 months of my son’s life documented & he turned 3 in November!  I have plans & product for everything from birth through 2nd birthday (Nov 2010).  So a 2011 Project Life would actually be kinda perfect.  I haven’t even printed pictures since his 2nd birthday!!!  Bad Mommy…. bad bad bad scrapping Mommy.

Ok, enough beating up on myself!  I have started!!!

I have the physical Cobalt Kit already set up & ready to go for 2012.  I picked out my Week 1 pictures, edited them and sent them for printing yesterday.  More on that later.

THIS is my 2011 (ok – Nov 2010 thru Dec 2011 to be exact) book.  For these pages I am using the digital files from Jessica Sprague in Turquoise to catch up!  I have a handful of traditional 2011 pages already so my intent is to make these pages & print them to put into a traditional 12×12 book.  That way if I have some extra pieces etc. I can squeeze them inside the weekly layouts.  But by making these digitally I can also have books printed for both sets of Grandparents when I am all done.  It took me most of my free time on Saturday to make up one page… yikes!  But having far less time today (Sunday) I busted out not one, but six pages (3 weeks).  Here are the weekly pages.
