project life

**the Carta Bella blog hop can be found HERE**

A looong time ago, I made an opening page for my project life album. And then that was it.

Every time I saw some one's project life spread I thought, I want to do that. So for the week of October 1-7, I snapped lots of photos, wrote down the cute things the kiddos said, and saved a menu from a new restaurant. The next week, I printed out the photos and scrapped them a la project life:)

I used the Blue Skies kit, the Blue Skies add-on, and the October Stamp add-on from Scraptastic Club. The little bits Jessica is so good about adding in AND the stamp kit were perfect for this type of project!

Here are some close up shots:

So after completing ONE week...I decided there was no way I could keep up with this every week! I think if it was the only type of scrapbooking I did, then maybe, but getting all of the pictures edited and printed out, then placing and embellishing and just took me too long. However, I love that I will have this in my album, so I am making it my goal to do a spread like this once a month. It is a great way to capture everyday type moments/routines!

I also love that using the kits, my page looks coordinated and put together;) you do project life? Or have you attempted? What are your secrets to keeping up with it?
