Project Life Monday - wk 1

Hello scrappy friends. I have my first week of Project Life completed and would love to share with you. I'm really enjoying this album so far. I'm still watching YouTube videos for ideas and I'm still having a hard time remembering to take all of the pictures I want, but I'm finding ways to make it work.

So far it looks like I will be using a two page spread for each week. I'm sure there will be weeks in my life that are less than exciting, but hopefully those will be few. Here is my first week's spread:

This week includes January 1st, which was when we took the Christmas tree down and out of the house. A couple pictures of our dinners and a picture of me throwing out the last of the Christmas cookies because my goal for January is to lose 5 lbs. before January 27th (vacation).

The title, Week one, was cut using the Cricut cartridge Opposites Attract. This week also included my first birthday dinner. It was a couple days early so that our older son and his family could join us. We went to my favorite restaurant, Texas Roadhouse. I had a chicken caesar salad and lots of my favorite sweet rolls with cinnamon butter.

The oval cut that says cookies and the chocolate chip cookie were cut using using the Cricut cartridge From my Kitchen.

On Sunday, January 6th I made tacos and they were very YUMMY! I cut the title from Opposites Attract.

Well, that's my first week of the year. I'm already started on my second week, but it's not completely done yet. My weeks will be going from Monday thru Sunday so that the weekend days will be together. I will have my 2nd week done and posted for you next Monday. Until then come on back and check out some Christmas layouts.


  1. This is a GREAT start!! And for some reason I now want cookies. ;)

  2. Great job on Project Life! Did you save your receipt from Texas Roadhouse? It might be fun for the kids to look back on one day, I love seeing old receipts and how prices change with the times.

  3. Love what you have started.


Blessed are the children of scrapbookers, for they shall inherit the scrapbooks.
