Ready, Set, Sunshine: Project Life Disney Album

Well, I started putting together our vacation album. Finally! We had such a great time on our first family vacation! We went to Florida to visit Disney World and Universal Studios. The girls LOVED it! I have almost 1000 photos, 26 videos, and a stack of memorabilia to go through. So, I thought that I would try to do this album in a Project Life style.  I figured that I would start out small (LOL!) to ease myself into it before I actually commit to a whole year of doing it. I went to my local Michael’s store and got the album and page protectors. I decided to use collections that I already had at home that I have been hoarding since my birthday months ago. I got the Dear Lizzy Lucky Charm and Amy Tangerine Yes, Please collections as gifts from my family. I’ll also use items from Crate Paper, Little Yellow Bicycle, Pebbles, and whatever else I have in my hoarded stash at home. This is my first attempt at Project Life and I have to say that (so far) I’m really enjoying the process. I like it, but the difficult part is finding the time to work on it during this busy summer. So, I’m just gonna take my time with it and not put too much pressure on myself to get it done. Don’t really know if this is something that I would want to do next year, but this sure is going to be a wonderful album full of the best memories from our first family vacation together. The girls are going to love it…even more so when I get done with it. Ha! Anyway, I’ll post more as I get pages done. And, hopefully, it won’t be too long between postings of my progress.

    You are off to a great start, Renee! In fact, you’ve got me thinking that I need to go back to some previous year’s vacations (that I never scrapped!) and take this approach! Can’t wait to see more!
