Project Life 2012

{Project Life} was created by Becky Higgins to take a new approach the scrapbooking.  I think she explains it best when she says, "Project Life is a back-to-basics approach to memory-keeping. This simple format requires no skill - only your pictures and a pen. No one's life is perfect but everyone has a story and every family has a collection of memories. Putting pictures + stories together in Project Life makes us more aware of our blessings and encourages us to cultivate a good life."

I love the idea that with this project I can do as little or as much as I want with each picture and journaling card.  Because I love to work with paper, I know that my finished project will be a little more than just the basics, but it doesn't have to be.  

This is my first year taking on Project Life.  At first I wasn't sure if it was a project for me.  I mean, scrapping everyday life is totally what I love, but recording so much of my life and dedicating time to a year long project are not my strong suits!  After talking with some of my friends at {Scrapfreak} that are doing the project, I decided that I would give it a try!

I went with the {Clementine Core Kit} and made my own mix of page protectors (I'm using design a, b, c and d).  The core kit is packed FULL of title cards and journaling cards!  So, my friend {Kristin} suggested that we swap half of out kits.  This works out perfectly because she purchased the {Colbalt Core Kit} and I was having a hard time deciding between the two.  Now I don't have to!

I will be working at creating a two page layout for every week of 2012.  There are several of us working on this project over at {Scrapfreak}, you can check out what we are working on {here}!  

Also, here are a few links to check out if you are working on the project already (or if you are thinking about it):
