So.....once again, I'm attempting to do Project Life this year.
I figured the best way to start is with page one. A title page. It gave me a space to write down a few ideas of my hopes for the book and give me a reason to stick to it.
Supplies: PTI kraft cardstock, Crate Paper 'Restoration', Martha Stewart punches, AC Thickers, Recollections glitter alphas.
Photography and adorable kiddos by Me!(and Mr. Paperaddict) :)Some little hand-made butterfly embellishments:
I was so happy there was a four of hearts in this paper! There are four of us in our little family, so it was perfect.
One thing I learned from my
I especially mention this because I've chatted with a few friends recently about their attempts at this project last year and how they gave up after falling behind. I've also seen several people mention it on-line as well that they just completely threw the towel in after falling behind. I say just pick up where you left off and keep going. You can do it! Again, so what? So what if it's not a photo every day? You are still recording your memories, big and small, and creating a priceless record of your life. Imagine how much fun it will be to look at in 10, 20, 30 + years and remember all the everyday little things that make you and your family who you are!
I'd like to share a quote I've recently come across that translates well, not just for this project, but for pretty much anything:
"I haven't failed, I've found 10,000 ways that don't work."
~ Thomas Edison.
Moving into 2012, I definitely plan to keep this idea in mind. I suppose you only fail when you stop trying.
