Project Life

This week’s Project Life covers the week of July 23-29.

I did a little experiment this week as I was creating this week’s layout.  I decided to open up my Project Life from earlier this year to enjoy it, relive it, and gain inspiration.   As I was looking through my Project Life I began to take mental notes on what I loved about certain weeks and why.
I noticed I LOVED the weeks where I balanced everyday moments and “what we did”.  I loved the inserts.  I loved when I included current events.  I loved the weeks I included memorabilia.  I loved when I used my instax camera.  I loved when I “got real” in my journaling.  I loved it when I stamped.  I loved when I made lists of things that went on that week.  I loved seeing my husband’s handwriting.  I loved when I included photos from different angles.  
Looking back on my Project Life was just what I needed for inspiration today.  It was so inspiring to actually SEE what I liked and think of ways to include that in upcoming layouts.   SO… my challenge to you this week is to look back at your Project Life and list all the things you LOVE about your album!   (and by the way, did you know I started Project Life in August of last year– on the first week of school?)  Anytime is a great time to start Project Life.

This week I used LOTS of Elle’s The Sweet Life and the new Stamps coming out next week!!!  You are going to love them!
