HI!!

I need help! First time Project Lifer, I am really having a hard time picking just ONE pic for a day.

For example, we went to San Francisco's Exploratorium with my kids yesterday. There were sooo many great pics. How do I choose just one? In addition, we went over to Crissy Field near the Golden Gate Bridge and I got so many great pics of the kids, the bridge, and the skyline of SF.

What would you do?? Apparently, the very thing, PL, that I thought would simplify scrapping for me is making me freak.

Help.

Thanks in advance!



Are you going to scrap any of that trip in one of the kids albums or a family album? The way I'm approaching the project life album is as a sort of journal of our daily life. This means that if we do a special trip (as we are bound to throughtout the year)and on birthdays etc...those pics will end up in another album. My daily pic will just be one that can tell the story.
Maybe just put in a pic of the skyline and talk about why you love living where you do and about all the things you did that day on a journalling card. All those great pics can go on a LO in another album......
Or cheat and pick your favourite 3 and spread them over the next 3 days...

I decided to do a 2 page lo of the day in our family album and will do a 4 x 6 slot with 3 small pics that best show the day for PL.

Thanks for the suggestions.

Thanks Paula, Ashley, and Christine for the suggestions


I have decided to limit myself to 2-3 pic for a special day knowing that I may not have a picture of each day of the week.

I am going to approach PL from the point of view of a week. I will take pics as often and I remember or can and use my 2 pg lo to include most days. I don't want to pressure myself to take a picture on days when I am not particularly inspired or feel I have to manufacture a moment to snap.

Who knows as I get more comfortable with scrapping and PL my vision may evolve. I look forward to the process.

I am STILL waiting for the PL page protectors to come back in stock to order all my stuff. I've had the core kits in my Amazon cart for 2 weeks now waiting.

I am getting antsy.

This is how I'm approaching Project Life as well. Last year I started off as a photo a day but around March I changed it to weekly.

I have my first week's of photos sent out to Walgreens and my husband will pick them up for me on his way home. I'm not even going to start with papers or anything before I get the photos.

I'm not doing the PL pages and cards. I will be making standard scrapbook pages. I'm still looking forward to this project.

I hope to have my first layout by the middle of the week.

We're still not quite finished moving, but I have had a lot of time in the car to plan some LOs for this and the BOM. I'm getting excited! If I can just get all these boxes emptied!!

I was going to scrap most of Sunday but I've been sick. I spent most of Sunday in bed and earlier today had to go back to bed to take a nap. My husband forgot to pick up my photos last night but promised to get them today. So hopefully I will be feeling decient tomorrow and can get my week 1 and cover page for 2011 and 2012 done. (I still have to finish my Dec 2011 page too but I need the photos my husband forgot to get to get them all done)

Here are my week #1 pages. I haven't quite mastered the art of taking a picture with the page protectors on, perhaps I'll try taking them outside on the weekend.

(I tried to submit the actual photo of my LO and it wouldn't work...not sure what I'm doing wrong...all I could get was the link to my gallery)
