Project Life

As, I promised, I am going to show you how I set up my album for project life.  This week has been an extremely difficult one.  My friend lost her mother to cancer on the 12th.  I mentioned it early in this post. And another good friend of mine lost her brother unexpectedly.  We just learned the news yesterday.  So, I would like to wish them all peace at this time and ask for your prayers for them.  Thank you.

When I prepared this album, it was bare bones.  I will go back through and add embellishments and such.  I just wanted to get the basic core of it done.  If you wish to participate, then I suggest you order the Simple Stories Year.O.Graphy kit:  found here.  I also ordered these album page protectors from here.  You will need to order two sets.  I have left overs, but I'm sure I can find a way to use them.  Please excuse the photos...I was in a hurry and I was too lazy to change lenses.  Also, I would like to share that I am so glad I decided to do this monthly.  I was reading another blog and it said, Project Life week 1, and I almost went into a panic...because I was's already been one week of January?  It was the 9th.  But then I remembered I had the rest of the month. Whew...

Cover Page:  I'm going to add our family photo to this page...when I finally have a chance to take one :)

January's Page...I think I like the left hand side blank so I can add notes during the year.

 A mini-layout will go on the left hand side.

I am really excited about this project, and I can't wait to share it with you.  If I need more space for layouts, I will add 8.5x11 pages to make up the difference.


  1. Great album!! Now all you have to do is fill it with great memories :)

  2. This kit is perfect for your project! don't you just love it?! Can't wait to see your amazing photos added!
