Project Life Arrives!

My Project Life Kit Finally arrived! I was pretty excited to get it but bothered because I couldn't drop everything and play with it. I finally got to play with it for real on Friday! I printed the first two weeks of photos and then I just stared at it.

I have never scrapbooked like this before EVER. I had all these coordinating pieces and no plan. I searched the box, through each piece and nope - not as much as a layout idea. Good thing I had peeked at some websites. I did a little "self-talking" - ok, just do the title page, nothing is permanent - you can change it later, and I began.

I didn't get the MEMO that the pictures needed to be horizontal until after I had taken a few days worth - apparently the majority of people take horizontal pics, I am not in the majority (once again) I tend to take verticals.......no idea why. So that proved to be a little bit of a layout nightmare - thankfully my Creative Memories software allows me to print different sizes easily and so I printed the pics so they would fit in the smaller pockets. I like the way it turned out so no more fussing, it leaves more room for journaling and you can slide in a few extra pics of events that way if you can't narrow it down to just ONE.

I am super duper excited and happy to have the first two weeks of January in and I made it simple it starts JANUARY 1, 2010. The book is much larger than I anticipated! I love the colors and how it looks!! I haven't journaled yet but here are the pictures! I'm looking forward to adding the journaling tonight - and then deciding just WHAT to do with the stickers and all that jazz........ the fun of it all!

I love your layouts, especially how you used the foldable journalling cards in the 4X6 spots! Well done!
