Luckily, my husband was able to recover all the photos for me. He went and bought an external hard drive, (the one I thought was too expensive before) and we backed up all the photos in the computer, plus I was transferring pictures from DVDs for two days! Lot's of work. But now I know what back up means and that was probably the last time I waited a whole year to to do that.
Speaking of Project Life, I decided to share a few pages in the album. It's not completely finished. I don't know if it will ever be (the journaling part), and I'm OK with that, like Ali Edwards likes to say.
Here are a few of my favorites from last year:
I love how Susan Weinroth uses little 3x4 calendar cards. I really wanted to add some to my PL but I needed them to match the color I need at the moment. I decided to design one myself, so I can adjust the colors as needed.
Another close up of the calendar card, and a little banner I added on top of the picture - which was cut with Silhouette. I don't add much to my Project Life album, just an occasional little detail here and there. All of the week titles were cut with Silhouette too. Some of the dark ones were printed directly on pattern paper.
I don't have all of the journaling cards filled yet, as I mentioned earlier, but my pictures and dates are in place.
Another card was hand made. Phrase was designed and cut with Silhouette and than glued to a 3x4 piece of pattern paper (this one was by Echo Park, Dots and Striped collection).
That's a little glimpse into our Project Life.
Just wanted to mention: You don't have to be a scrapbooker to do a project life. There are SO many options today, and all it takes is a desire. Seriously. The rest are just tools. You don't even have to use these page protectors and cards. A nice and plain photo album would do it.
Thanks for stopping by! If you have any questions, plese ask, I'll be happy to answer!
