each week my love for this project grows & grows. It is really amazing to share it with J, our friends and our family, everyone has really taken to it. J said to me yesterday "why dont you ALWAYS do this?" :) it LOVE to see our small details captured.i used a full sized 8x10 page on the right, friday on top & saturday on bottom. i have box of "go to" PL supplies (labels galore, flat sticker letters, SMASH, etc) but it is really proving to be a great stash killer for all the misc "perfect" bits to add to each day! (fabulous added bonus)
This week: gorgeous MLK Day, Skype with J (case in point: PERFECT little rainbow from KI Memories for the Skype. love it!), a gorgeous sunrise, Positive Action at school, "Beauty & the Beast" 3D and Starbucks breakfast date with my boy. (why hello again October Afternoon CB piece. you are proving to be handy!)

i could scream it from the rooftops. such a wonderful feeling to document throughout the week and see it all come together. All my friends and family already love the concept and first two weeks. the PL community is a great one: i LOVE reading PL blogs and looking through the Studio Calico gallery. such amazing inspiration!
(yep, thats my son's face concealed by an October Afternoon Sasparilla chipboard piece- haha!)
I loved starting off with the "halfsie" and since i had a cpuple of pics i really liked from our Riverside sunday brunch, it basically became a quick 6x12 page :)

It feels good to be back to blogging, i fell off the wagon a bit in 2011 and aim to resolve that :) I have so much to share, so many moments and layouts and all sorts of eye candy!
First up, Week 1 of Project Life.
words completely fail me on happy i am to have started PL this year. I have been intrigued by the concept the past few years but it just never felt .. right to start it in the previous years. Its hard to put into words, but this was THE TIME. and just one week in- its already amazing. Picking supplies and developing a system ,seeing the recap layout come together.. so fun. I'm already excited about the upcoming week ;)
i purchased the Cobalt core kit, cardstock & album, as well as a plethora of various sized page protectors. I have a special area just for PL stuff, to keep the supplies relatively simple, as to not imperede to creative process each Sunday night. besides the Cobalt kit, i have LOADS of journal cards, tags, Smash items, washi tapes & date stamps. I plan on doing a "PL Products" post, at some point in this adventure.
SO, this week: drinks on New Years day, writing letters & making cards for my brother-in-law in basic, back to school, J trip to CO, tons of happy mail & a gorgeous day at the park :)
Cant wait to see what this New Year brings all of us!
