Project Life Thursday's

I'm addicted to my new project life by Becky Higgins. When you see something online or things that everyone is doing, you think well it's cool, but do I really need it. I mean I could go to starbucks for a whole week, twice a day even, and get those pair of shoes I've been swooning over the last week instead...

I know, I actually think this in my head.

I starred, thought, imagined of what I could do with this product. Was it something I really wanted? Would I actually use it? Finally, with my girl panties on, click the button and placed the order on Amazon. I mean I have 2 day free freaking shipping, why the hell not. I rationalized with buying, thinking that mother's day was coming up & and saved the hubs the trouble and bought my mother's day gift. What a gal right!?

When that ugly, unattractive brown box showed up on the porch, I was like this is it. I must open it now and decide if it was worth the money before the hubs comes home and explains to me why I should never be allowed or let alone a computer. (he is problem smiling right now). 

I opened it and it was in this pretty white box. Let's just say I dove right in that night and well I haven't stopped. I love it, it's easy and it's something that I can have time to myself to do. 

Here a couple of photos of my first few pages. Some are incomplete, but you get the idea. 

Are you swooning for one of these bad boys. Unfortunately the one I have is no longer available. Don't fret, she is coming out with her new kits for school in July and also, new kits for 2012 in October. Stock her blog at BeckyHiggins.Com 

I went onto snap fish and ordered around 300 prints of photo's of Mack's first year. I even made 4X6 collages right on the site as well. I paid $29.93 for 300 prints and collages. If you order now on snap fish use code 2011MAY and you will get free shipping. Perfect right. 

Any of my fellow bloggers that are digging into project life? I would love to know and see your progress and what you have done with your albums.

Project Life - My order has arrived

I have been swooning and drooling and perhaps day dreaming of me completing a project for life album by Becky Higgins. 

You have heard of project life. OMGeee... go here now please

ok.. I feel better now you have seen it and now you are scratching your head yeah and..

I'm a scrapbooker, yet I haven't completed a damn thing. That is the truth. ok, I lied I finished 1 page. My child is almost flippin 3 years old. One page is pathetic. I'm a working mom, ya I know what an excuse right. But, seriously it's mine. I work full time and some, 50 hours minimum a week, cook, clean, baths, read stories, bake, dance class etc. I do it all. So where in the world do I find the time to scrap book. During my child's 3 hour naps. Ya it's crazy my child still naps for almost 3 hours a day. Yay me! However, during that time I think of other things to do.. like being lazy, catching up on shows, being lazy, cleaning, grocery shopping or just being lazy. Moral of that sentence I've been lazy about scrap booking. 

Anyway, I've seen this product come up time and time again on other people's blogs and I instantly needed to know what the hype was about. I checked out becky higgins website and then I was hooked and ordered my first kit 2 days ago on Amazon for myself for mother's day. I'm so nice to myself I know. 

I just received it today and I'm so excited. It's like the perfect dream for limited time and still have scrap booking, but less time consuming, therefore more time to do other things.. like be lazy. Possibly. 

This is the amber kit/ the binder

First I need to get all my photos printed.. yikes ya like 3 years worth. I plan on getting one book done in the next month and completing the other 1 1/2 years in the next 3 months. The kit is amazing and so so easy. I will be updating every tuesday on my "project life".
