Project Life Scrapbooking Craze has got me

I have been trying to hold off in getting involved in Project Life Scrapbooking
I have been looking at blogs and web site for a few months, thinking I would love to do this but do I have the time, will I get bored half way through the year.
Well its the start of a new year so I thought, why not have ago and see how i get on. 

What is Project life
Its a record of all those daily things that we all do.
Its a no fuss approach to scrapbooking your weekly events.
I still love to spend time making my traditional scrapbooks and my digital scrapbooking .
where I plan my layouts around a photo that I want to scrap.
The aim of Project Life is to take the photos and record where it was, what you were feeling on your journalling tags.
To not spend hours creating a masterpiece but to get it down and recorded.
So at the end of the year you can look back at 2013

I have taken the pressure off a bit , by promising myself to take photos and do at least one page for each month.
I am hoping to do a weekly layout, but will be happy at the end of 2013 if I have covered something for each month.
I have decided to do digital pages then have them all printed into a 12x12 photobook this time next year.
I have been very good so far and managed a to do the first two weeks, and I have been snapping photos this week ready to add to my pages at the start on next week.
I will be doing random pages as you see below but also have some templates to do some Project life page protector styles.
I will be mixing these in the Album as I go along.
So wish me luck, come along and join me on my weekly journey.
I would also love to come see what your weeks bring if you too are doing a Project Life scrapbook for 2013.
Please leave a comment below so that I may come support you on your blogs throughout the year
 This is my title page.
this I might change or add more family photos to as the year goes by .
I just wanted to start with photos of the grandchildren
 Week one was not a good start.
 I had a week on the sick from work with a nasty winter flu bug.
The grandchildren had it over Christmas , I came down with it New years Eve morning so did not stay up to see in 2013, was tucked up in bed by 9pm
Week Two, 
Keaton is better as am I back to work this week.
Its Jeffs turn to be in the wars, He got himself bitten by a dog ,while at work, he spent hours a the hospital and had to have a tetanus injection and antibiotics

So off to a good start with my Project, lets hope I can keep it up



  1. Wendy I have no doubt you can stick with it. I too have looked into PL just haven't taken the plunge. Good start so far !

  2. Great start Wendy, hope everyone is well now. Can't wait to see the rest of your layouts. :-) xx

  3. What a lovely idea this is, Wendy! Not only will you have a lovely keepsake to look back on, but the grandchildren will enjoy it too, when they are older. As usual you are making a lovely job of it, too. So sorry to hear that both you and little Keaton went down with the flu, and hope you are feeling better now. I've managed to escape everything so far, but my poor hubby had the Noro virus and was very sick for a couple of days. He is now suffering from a very painful hip and saw the doc the other day, but is now on ant-inflammatories and feeling a bit better.

    So long out of touch - need to catch up methinks!! Dad's been poorly with another infection but the antibiotics kicked in straight away and he's better again now. Very happily settled in residential care. Mum being her usual self! We had her over for fish and chips last night and the evening left me totally exhausted as her hearing aids weren't working so we had to bellow all evening, and she did nothing but complain... Last time we saw her she told me I was fat! Yes, well, maybe I am but did she need to tell me lol lol!!!!!

    Thanks for your visit, and I'm glad you liked our wedding photo. The wedding photo swap is such fun!

    I have been thinking about you a lot lately because I'm off to a craft show in Exeter next Thurs and remember what fun we had when we met up! I'm meeting up with another Blogland friend and her hubby, which will be fun.

    Take care of yourself hunnybuns and don't get caught in the snow!!


  4. Good luck on keeping up with Project Life. You are off to a fabulous start of a priceless family heirloom. I am afraid I am too undisciplined to keep up with the project. I should work on that flaw, but at my age.................... Hugs honey have a fabulous 2013.

  5. You're off to a great start! It may seem awkward at first, it did for me. But good luck and enjoy. Hugs, Lisa Barrie
