Project Life : Week 1

First, I must thank you all for your kind words about the announcement of my new book. So exciting that some of you already have it, and for those who don't, it's easy to order an autographed copy online! They should also be on newsstands any day now - check with your local scrapbooking stores as well as Archivers', Joann & Hobby Lobby. projectlifebannerI have to admit, it was a strange start to this year. I was not in my normal, excited, refreshed state when the New Year came along. No one could likely tell I was in a funk, but I could. Happily, it's now week 3 and whatever it was has passed. Pretty sure putting this spread together had something to do with it. The process is therapeutic and almost has a cleansing quality. Like after the week is over, and after I have put it into my Project Life album, then I can totally move on. Since I was in a but of a funk, I decided to stick with a simple color palette, so as not to add more unnecessary frustration. I also used Pam Garrison's "It's a Bit Week" stamp set throughout.

Recently I was asked what album I am using this year for Project Life. Originally I was going to use another  black with cameras album, but am seriously considering switching to this woodgrain chevron.
