Project Life 2012 - Week 1

*My title page is STILL not complete.  My Studio Calico box came late and there was no good light, so I'll get a picture tomorrow and post about it then!

Week 1: And I'm hooked!  I absolutely loved working on this.  I love collecting little pieces from our everyday.  I loved decided what to include and what could be left out.  I loved recording little bits from our everyday lives that we normally don't even think about.  This was a big week for us including an ear piercing, starting a dance class, and leaving for a deployment.
Here's how it looks in the album.  I'll work on getting straighter pictures!

I wanted to really capture our family goals this year.  I'll point out  when we meet some of these goals as the year goes on.

The tag is from my husband's office.  I love when he brings me things I can use in my scrapbooks!  I stamped the AF logo with a wood-mounted stamp I have.

A couple of things I learned this first week is that I need to write on my planner with pencil!  I did a lot of switching as I was planning my placements.  I learned that I need to print pictures throughout the week so I don't spend an hour editing and printing pictures when all I want to do is sit down and create.  I also learned to take a few minutes here and there when I can and do some journaling, or embellish a card.  Any little bit helps, especially with two young children and not a lot of free time to sit and work.

But I'm absolutely hooked!  I love the process and how easy and NOT intimidating it is.  Title page post coming tomorrow!

Are you doing a Project Life album?  If so, please link me up, I'd love to see it!
