a little more papering:)

one of my new year's resolutions is to make a paper page every other day.
i have many many fugly pages that need to be re-done and condensed.
i am hoping to make at least 6 pages with this kit from the sadly defunct scrappingspot november kit.

some of the little details.

project life, my way:)

my binder. costco office supply brand, it works:)

cutting down pictures and making it work.

a birthday spread all about little me. notice, NO chronology:)

tabs to distinguish one thing form the other.

a spread about sleeping babies:) these pictures were all in a box.

a view of my table right now.
right now, i am all about getting pictures and stories down.
my oldest daughter's friend just lost her mom, so it is really driving things home for me.
it is all about documenting...and it is all good.

another one bites the dust:)

just BREEZING thru the pictures!!!!

making project life work for me

earlier this year i purchased project life, fully expecting to do a 365 type album.
life got in the way.
i was able to stay on track until may and then i just fizzled out.
since then i have been using the elements of the kit on other projects and i still have TONS of paper tidbits left.
i just started this random memories book.

i had a pack of baseball card page protectors in my stash.

and this 1.5 stack of old printed pictures of family.

my library of memories storage

this is the rest of my printed pictures. thankfully they are all in one place. YAY ME!!

the process for this album is simple.
i cut down the cards and pictures to fit the page protector spaces

when i am finished filling up the spaces, i'll add journaling on the cards. it is really important for me to get this done.
these pictures have survived thru so much, especially the ones that are my husband's. i want to make sure that the memories are captured, however small.

isn't that what scrapbooking is all about?
