documenting our life PL style...title page...

Okay, so one of my "sort of" goals for this year is to restart Project Life. For the umpteenth time. And to actually stick with it. I'm trying to convince myself that by planning on posting each week's layout here on the blog on Wednesdays, it will keep me motivated to actually make those layouts on the Tuesday date-night I have planned with myself. (I've rewritten that last sentence four times now, and am still not sure it makes sense outside my own brain. Oh well.) I still don't have myself convinced, but I figure it's worth a try anyway.

Here's the title page. Nothing fancy, but then it wouldn't be me if it was. Honestly, I'm just loving the fact that we got a family picture of us (thank you Dani!)--it's sort of a rare beast around here thanks to the two uncooperative young men in our midst. :P


(Hey, Trish!!!! You know you really want to join me, right???? :D )

Just happened to catch your tweet. Yay me.

Yes--I do. But I'm a big wimp. You'd yell at me if I told you I didn't think I had the creativity for this right?

Trish,
Damn right I'd yell at you!!! Long and loud! How can you even entertain the idea that you're not creative enough?!!! Pure and utter foolishness!!!

Not fancy? Looks fancy enough to me. Love the photo. I think the last one we have of the four of us together was the one you took when you stopped in on your way to New Orleans to see Chris.

I LOVE this first page so much already Debi and I love the idea of you having a date night with yourself so much too :D One of these years, I'm going to do this too :) I think it would be neat to keep a memory book of the year to look back on.

Jean,
I LOVE LOVE LOVE that picture of you guys!!! I wish we could get a picture halfway as nice as that one. But alas, we have a few weak links in our crew. :P

Chris,
I know "scrapbooking" isn't really something you see yourself doing...but this!!! Chris, I seriously think you'd love it!!! It's really just collecting bits and pieces of your life and sticking them in little pockets. Photos, notes, receipts, whatever. And the more you can actually make yourself write to add to it the better, of course. But even if you never journal a thing, you've still got an awesome look at a piece of your life!!!

This sounds like fun, and I love the group pic of you! I'm still shaking my head at forgetting to take photos of any of y'all when I visited.

Anyway, I'm trying a relaxed photo-a-day project, which is fun so far (especially w my shiny new camera!) and should work as a kind of visual journal of the year. We'll see how it goes!

How fun! I KNOW I am not talented enough for stuff like this so I will live vicariously through all the talented people... :)
