Project Life Week #3: January 9 - 15, 2012...

I finished another week of Project Life my friends, and I am telling you this project is fun, fun, FUN!

Here's how it turned out...
My main activity for the week was a scrapbook retreat with my girlfriends, so there is a lot about that; but also some random photos of everyday life, combined with lots of misc. stuff.

Closeup of left side (click to enlarge)...
I included the little Geico Gecko cuz, well, I like him! And I am thinking little bits of pop culture are great to include, cuz looking back on them will be fun as the years go by! The photo of Johnny (our cat) is a black and white that I altered by painting the background and highlighting his eyes. Also noted was the arrival of two new magazine subscriptions (I just cut the subscription card in half and it fit perfectly!), the daily weather (I got my notepad at Blick, but it's also available online here), the sticker from my latest Cocoa Daisy kit, and a cat food refill day photo (grin). The Georgia O'Keefe quote came from O Magazine.

The photos of my retreat center came from the web. Also included a photo of a text I got from Michael while I was gone, a scan of my new iphone case (LOVE), my morning clif bar package, and a couple of art projects I created. The journaling card on the bottom left is from the Clementine kit, and the one second from the right on the bottom is from the Cobalt kit.

If you are doing Project Life this year - how is it going for you? I'd love to hear!

Thanks for visiting!

Love your project life. Im doing project life, this is my 4th year and I still really enjoy it. I do a simple take on it and just use photos and the journalling cards. I will add a few extra pages here and then and some stickers but thats about all. I love how everyone who does project life starts off with the same product but there are no two albums the same.

WOW Michelle, it's so cool to see your project life and how different it looks from mine. You fill yours up so good and with so many fun and colorful things.

That retreat looks like it was fun and a pretty place to be. I just saw that art journal magazine for the first time at bookstore and liked it, might have to subscribe to it.

I love everything you did and that little weather journal card is so cute, I thought you drew it yourself.

So glad your having fun with this and making it yours.
Have a great week!

Yup! I love this! You are 100% right- we should include the pop culture stuff we like- we will look back on those and laugh- I already miss my Menudo and New Kids of the Block posters from 25 years ago. Very inspiring!
