Project Life title page...

So... For the second year I am going to attempt Project life.  Last year?  Well... I only got to April, and it's not even complete for those months!  I failed for many reasons.

*Not printing my photo's at home.  I had good intentions of printing them out once a week at costco.  I would forget, or put it off, etc.  

*Not marking my pictures, or writing it down, etc.  I would forget which picture was from what day, etc.  I am a bit OCD, and not knowing the exact day I took a picture made me crazy.

*I was too obsessed with a picture every day.

*I was following PL as intended and felt creatively bored.

So, this is what I'm planning on doing differently this year.

*I've purchased a Epson Picturemate Charm (Hoping it arrives soon) 

*I will be printing out my pictures daily, hopefully I will get into a good routine.  I plan on setting an alert on my iphone for 10pm.  Which is a good time for my shortly before bed, all the kids should be asleep and there should be no excuses to quickly edit a picture or two and print them.

*I think I'm going to do it in a per week style like Lisa has been doing.  I'm hoping this will take the pressure off a bit and put my ocd guilt to rest if I miss a picture or two here or there.

*I'm going to use the PL page protectors for most of the album and sprinkling in bit of my left over Turquoise album into the mix, but for the most part I'll be using supplies I have on hand.  My creative spirit is much happier about it.

I cut out this cute shape with my new Silhouette with a Pink Paislee grid paper.  I then inked up the back of a PL card with distress ink and layered them together. 



And this my friends is my finished title page.  Certainly not perfect, but fun, and me.  I am SO excited to embark on this journey again in hopefully a more successful manner.  So many changes will be happening in our life this year including a move to a new city, and buying our first house!  Recording those things will mean a lot to me  :)

Happy New Year!!!!!!!!!!! :)

I totally stopped around the same time when I was doing a picture a day too! I wasn't even doing Project Life then, just making my own layouts. I am starting with it this year too, and am really excited about it. Love your title page and can't wait to see what you do with your album.
