MDS Blog Hop: Something New (Project Life Week 1)

This week we are all about showing you something new on our blog hop! So I figured, I would try something new. My own version of Project Life! I will be (attempting) creating a layout for each week of the year. It will mostly include cell phone photos that don't usually end up on my other layouts. I'm being pretty flexible with it, not always going in Sunday-Friday order, and sometimes skipping a day if I don't have a picture for it. I want to be able to look back twenty years from now and remember what the day-to-day stuff of my life involved. I especially want to be able to tell Esper what it was like, transitioning into being a single mom. I want to be able to remember these special little moments I get to experience with her every day.

I copied a template I saw on a digital scrapbooking site. It was so easy to make my own template in My Digital Studio that I can use each week. Or I may switch it up and move the placement of everything, but for now I like the ease and cohesiveness of having each page look similar. The fun part comes in changing up the color scheme and products used. Today I used the new Day in the Life kit, which is a great one to use if you are doing your own Project Life book.

P.S. Check out the first picture where it looks like Esper is trying to discover her baby doll's gender. :)

  1. Oh wow! I applaud you for taking on the 52 week project. Can wait to see them! So nice to see you smile again :)

  2. OMG Erica!!! I'm SO glad you posted this! I've been wanting to do a Project Life album, but wanted to do it digitally instead, just didn't wrap my brain around it yet. And I LOVE LOVE LOVE this! I'm going to have to make my own now! Awesome job! :) (By the way - saw your feature in Stampin' Connection and LOVED it! Congrats!)

  3. Love it! What a great idea and I LOVE the color combo. You're rockin' it girl.
