Project Life / P365 / My Word = "F"

I have attempted one or many of these projects before andfailed

So in 2012 I am hoping the release of this new product from Becky Higgins & Jessica Sprague will allow me to follow through and complete this project……finally!


The page overlays and elements are available as individual purchases or as bundles and work out alot cheaper for us here in Oz when you have to take into consideration the freight as well.


You could even mix and match some of the elements from the Turquoise Edition with the Cobalt Edition to give your project even more personality. Some image editing experience is required, for example Photoshop or Elements, but at first glance it all seems pretty easy.
I have already started to play with the cover page and it has taken me no time at all. How I’m going to print it out is still yet to be decided as I would like to test some pages here at home on my printer first, but I’m thinking I may need to use a lab to get a finish I’ll be happy with.

I love to scrapbook and I really don’t find the time these days to use up my supplies like I would like and because my photography business resides in the same room, I am reluctant to make a mess as I need to keep it tidy. 
So why have I succumbed to the digital version?
Because I can put together a page at my computer.
Because I don’t need to print photos as I go.
Because I don’t need to make a mess and have to clean it up.
Because it’s manageable.
Because I can also incorporate tickets and memorabilia into another slip in page protector.
Because I can combine a photo a day, journaling and my word for 2012 into one project.


The biggy – Father Christmas (aka my gorgeous Husband) bought me one of these so that I can capture more of the every day……

Sure beats lugging around my Canon 5D MKII.

I intend using the 1 week at a time approach and incorporate one photo/story about “change” my word for 2012. I’m really looking forward to doing this project, but then again I have every year I started! Wish me luck?


  1. Great LO! And I love that kit! Good luck with your projects, I'll be sure to follow along with your blog :)

  2. I'm a first-timer at these 365/PL type projects, so am hoping the kit will be my inspiration too! I've gone with the turquoise edition too, but in paper :)
    Good luck!

  3. I am loving reading your blog Sharon and following along with your progress...I am taking my photos, jotting down my stories but STILL undecided on how to actually present the whole Project Life thing! I am swaying toward digital as well, as you have done!!! And also toward the Turquoise kit!!! I'm off to read the rest of your posts!!!

    1. Thanks for your lovely comments Kim - There are advantages and disadvantages of doing digi or paper but hopefully I will be able to combine the two successfully. Thanks for stopping by my blog. Sharon
