Project Life Week of Nov 28-Dec4

It's hard for me to believe I am still completely caught up with my album this year!  It has been so nice to have a groove, and continue to work on this project week after week.  I haven't gotten sick of it, I haven't fallen (too) behind.  There have definately been weeks that I slipped, but for the most part, it has gone pretty smooth.  Only 3 more weeks left of 2011!!  I am super excited for the ladies I have pressured encouraged to try this project for 2012.  Can't wait to see what they create!!

Week of Nov 28- Dec 4
I ordered a few items from Two Peas in a bucket on Black Friday.  I think I saved 30% on everything.  Not bad.  My order came this week, so I got to try out a few of my new things.  LOVE, LOVE, LOVE these scrap pads from Studio Calico.  Awesome for journaling!  Also, these cute little Smash Pads from K&Co are perfect for recording cute little quotes the kids say.

On a related Project Life Note...the new products finally became available at Amazon this week.  With the help of my fellow Stalker Tara, I was on Amazon the instant I found out and order my new Kit.  I decided on Clementine because of the pretty colors, and cute patterns.  I loved the Turquoise this year, but I wanted something a little more feminine this time.
 
Love it!!!  :)  According to my order, it should be arriving next week.  Yay!  Like I told my cousin Tara...my Fed Ex guy may want to be cautious...I'm going to be a little more than excited when it arrives (that was the clean version of the story).

So happy with this project (if I haven't already said that a million times), with the flexibility of it, the endless possibilities, how it motivates me to capture the little things instead of just the big stuff, how it still allows me to be creative but remains simple at the same time.  If you are reading this and do not consider yourself a "scrapbooker"...I think you should give this a try.  Especially if you have small kids!  I swear I don't get paid for this (although it would be nice if I did), I just feel so strongly about capturing and documenting memories, and this is the perfect way to do it.

Now go take pictures and document something!  You will be happy you did!

You've definitely inspired me. I am pretty sure I'm going to try it. I want to order two and try and do one for each of the kids but still not certain. I'm very excited!!

Oh my goodness, Sara. Our parallel lives strike again. I went with Cobalt (more "masculine") for 2012 because I used Amber (more "feminine") this year! Funny.

I love the way you use Instagram photos on the 3x4 cards. Totally pinning this on Pinterest to return to for inspiration!

I am always excited to wrap up the year in Project Life and start with a fresh new kit so much fun:) I also used turquoise this year and ordered Clementine for next year! I love all the designs in it! I am just about caught up on my album for this year. My major goal for next year is to stay on top of my layouts each week. I love your layouts and how you make them your own even with using the kit! I look forward to seeing your pages for 2012!!
