Project Life Round Up

Project Life Round Up

Believe it or not, I did not abandon my Project Life album for the year. That’s not to say I’m not behind, though.

July through December is completely done, with photos, journaling, and a tiny bit of embellishing, as well as a few bits of memorabilia thrown in.

How about the rest of the year? Let’s see:

Sunday I got the photos I had on hand arranged and in the album, along with the cards and papers chosen to fill in the rest of the spaces. That takes me up to the middle of April.

Monday I worked on journaling and adding memorabilia.

Tuesday was all about adding finishing touches, and choosing the photos for the rest of the year.

Wednesday and Thursday I began again, arranging photos, and adding papers to the blank spots.

Friday was back to journaling. Sometimes this is the longest and hardest part of doing Project Life.

Saturday was for finishing touches.

Sunday, I showed it to the boys, and asked them if I should do another album for next year. Since I got lots of “I don’t know, what do you want to do?” and no really big interest in looking at it, I don’t feel the need to do this again next year.

I’m glad I have this, and I will be doing PL again, but I’m taking a break from this style of scrapbooking for awhile. It’s entirely too time consuming for me, and it doesn’t feel like playtime at all.

Who’s still doing Project Life? What’s your favorite part about it?

Who’s given up? Don’t feel guilty, it’s totally okay if you have. Goodness knows the only reason I didn’t quit this year was because I’m too stubborn for my own good.

  1. I never did do PL the way it was designed, mostly using pockets for the overflow of vacation photos. Now I am into the app on my phone and love how quickly I can get things done by comparison with paper PL.

What do you think?
