I love the embarking-on-something-new feeling.  This is the beginning of a new album, Project Life 2013. There’s no opening page (though I do intend to add a year-in-review/table of contents insert like the one in our 2011 album later on). Just jumped right in to week one. I didn’t take a lot of photos that week, so this one page insert was all that I needed. 5 photos, a handwritten note from Becky Higgins and the back side of my business card. The black striped card is from the Seafoam Kit.

Week 3 (left side).  This was a fun week, a little bit of everything – family time, work and fun.  On Monday, I spent the day at Disneyland with friends that were still in town from CHA.  The rest of the week was spent trying to get back into a regular work routine. And spending lots of quality time with my family.

Week 3 (right side).

I’m trying to incorporate more journaling in the album this year. The text here I took directly from a blog post I had written that week.

Here I printed a couple of screenshots from a video chat session with Peppermint.  My girls adore her. That night they were freaking out over Peppermint’s “gold hair.”

One of my favorite things to attempt lately with an iphone is the “blur on purpose” look (inspired by one of my favorite photographers, Cindy Loughridge).

Both sides together.

Week 2 is done too.  I’ll try to share that next week (it’s a big one with lots of photos from CHA). I’m excited about Project Life, more than ever this year.

    Liz,

    Quick question since I plan on incorporating the midnight edition into my current PL album when it becomes available. Is the predominant dark color black or dark brown? Hard to tell on the computer. Thanks!

      It’s not a true black, it’s a soft (less stark) black if that makes sense. But it’s definitely in the black family, not brown.

        I’m the same! I hardly ever use 100% black in my designs. Much prefer 90% (or %95) black. I like how you call it ‘soft black.’

        p.s. Trawling your archives, as you can see…
