Late to the party...

So, decided at the last minute to jump on the Project Life bandwagon. I started a wee bit late and am now trying to play catch up. For those of you who aren't familiar with PL, it is a way to document your life throughout the year. I am doing mine as a week by week. If you are interested in reading about PL and what all it entails you can click above on the link.

I opted to just buy the page protectors and then to use my own stash for all of the rest of it, I just couldn't see buying the premade product when I have so much stuff of my own already and it just isn't that difficult to cut 3x4" and 5x7" pieces of paper.

As I said I'm a little bit behind...today I'm sharing with you the opening page and then week 1 and week 2. This album will be just for me, there are no requirements. There are some things in my possession that have long been neglected due to some other commitments. Since this isn't fulfilling any assignments or commitments I'm just going to be using whatever strikes my fancy! FUN! It's been a while since I've done that.

Opening page:

Week 1
Lazy Sunday mornings, ski lessons, and a miserably sick kiddo.
(Lily Bee Head Over Heels Paper)


Week 2
New Barbie pool and making a first basket ever in a basketball game.


That's it for me today....ciao!!!

Tonya, your stitching is amazing! Love that cover page. And isn't it fun to do something simply because you want to!
Oh, and you don't need to wait for me! Start that thread girl. Sometimes I feel bad always starting it, LOL
