Y’all thought I gave up on Project Life, didn’t ‘ya? Surprise! I didn’t.
My original intention was to have a 2012 volume, but when I admittedly fell four months behind I decided to make my own rules, creating a first volume that starts with my birthday.
The title page is an enlarged 12×12 picture from my birthday dinner cut to fit the six 4×6 spots in the page protector. I then journaled directly on the photo using an American Crafts Candy Shop silver gel pen.
After scrapping only the first week, I have already learned four valuable lessons: 1) I have to throw perfection out the window if I have any hope of sticking with this project; 2) I have to do a little at a time; 3) my plan for the page and the reality of the page will probably not be the same, so be flexible; and 4) it’s fine to look at other project life albums and get inspiration from them, but I have to do what works for me.
I obviously have some catch-up to do, but I can already see how meaningful this project is going to be.
