Project Life Week 1 and 2

Yep I've done it! I've joined the PL bandwagon!!!
Doing a PLalbum is a great way to capture fun
little events in our lives, I can only imagine how much
fun the girls will have years from now looking
at all our PL albums. I know I wish I had something like
this from my childhood.

I thought the 12x12 format would be to big for me
to keep up with I therefore opted for the smaller 6x8 format
with 4-3x4 pockets on each page protectors.
At first I was afraid I wouldn't have enough to "talk"
about but surprise surprise I have more than enough,
sometimes I even have to cut out stuff.

Today I will share week 1 and week 2.
I keep my PL rather simple, as opposed to scrapbooking
layouts where I have alot of embelishements and layers,
my PL is more clean and simple, makes it much
easier to keep up with. 

Week 1




Since I want the girls to be able to follow along and read the
entries I've opted for a bilingual approach. The accents
are mainly in English and the journaling is in French.

Week 2




As you can see I don't have a "kit" to do my PL,
I just have odds and ends that I've collected and printed from the
web. There are also great accents on the Silhouette store.
I'll be back tomorrow with week 3 and 4.

I really like what you've put together--I don't think you need a kit. However, I want to applaud you for doing this size. The different sizes tend to scare me. GREAT job!
