For me, scrapbooking is like exercising – I have to have lots of motivation and others to motivate me. This year – 2013 – I want to do a Project Life album / project. But, without motivation, I’m done before I even start! So, who wants to participate in a no-stress, no-cost, no-hassle challenge?

It will work something like this:
-
1. Each week you create a LO of your life—either using the Project Life album or a variation of your own design.

2. The first week will start on January 1st (Tuesday) and end on January 7th (Monday). Subsequent weeks will begin on Tuesday and end on Monday. You can create your LO any time during that week, as long as your picture is submitted by Monday for that week.

3. Every Monday, each participant will submit a picture of their LO of their week.
Please use the following instructions for public embedding and linking photos:

ALLOWING PUBLIC EMBEDDING:
1. Go to the layout in your gallery.
2. Click on 'Edit Image' tab under the layout.
3. Scroll down to the bottom left side.
4. Check the box that says, ‘Allow Public Embedding’.

LINKING LAYOUTS TO THE THREAD:
1. Go to the layout in your gallery.
2. Click on 'Link/Embed Image' link in the 'Share & Link' box to the left of the layout.
3. Click on 'IMG code' button.
4. Copy and paste the code which starts [url...] into the forum thread.

4. On Monday, I will post a picture of a prize that will be sent to the person who is randomly drawn from all the submissions – one submission per week.

5. Names from the previous week will remain in the prize draw. Winners names will be removed as they are drawn.

6. I may decide to do a “pop draw” like a pop quiz for the people whose names remain in the draw.

7. All you have to do is to create one LO per week and submit a picture of your weekly LO every Monday.

8. Prizes may or may not be scrapbook related. On Monday I will post the prize for the week.

9. PM me to play with your screen name, real name, mailing address, and phone number

My goal with this challenge is to complete a one year – 52 weeks – album of my life. And to share this challenge with others who may want to partake in this endeavor also!

This sounds fun, means I will have to take a picture everyweek but I am sure I can do it. Never heard of Project Life albums but I can make my own LOs Sign me up.

Great. Just try to remember to PM your info...so that when you win a prize I can mail it to you! If you google "Project Life" you'll get some good examples. You can buy a kit but I am going to try to hodge podge mine together. I recently purchased a Sn@p Simple Stories kit that I am going to use.

How you put your weekly LO together is up to you! This is more about getting it done. Week by week.

I am in-- I want to do an album of my first year of retirement-- I joined a calendar swap back in the fall with the intent to use those pages for some of my lo's, so please don't put me in the drawing, as I don't think it is fair to the ladies on this thread for me to use lo's made by others and that have been made in advance-- I do want to participate, though to keep me inspired and motivated to complete it!

Let me know then if you use something newly created. Then you can be in the draw on those weeks! No biggie. Glad we'll be able to help with motivation.

Add me. I had already planned to do a 2013 project, so this one will help me stay motivated. Last time, I stuck with it until August - then school started and I couldn't find time.

Shouldn't be a problem this year.

I'm super excited that we can all "get together" to motivate eachother. Just to be clear: the purpose of this challenge is to motivate & have fun. It's up to each of us how we interpret the Project Life theme (Google it for great ideas!). As long as one picture of your weekly LO is posted by Sunday, you're eligible for the drawing. And if you don't make it one week, you can catch up the next week.

No stress. No hassles.

To be honest, it was your post earlier today that got me to thinking about this. So, thank you! It's my first time too. Never even heard of it until reading your post this morning.
