Scrap booking- My best of "Project Life", 2010, or "Project 365" as it was called last year.

I did Becky Higgins Project 365 last year (see also Project 365, 2009 ) and loved it so much I did her Project Life this year. It's one of the ways I do scrap booking. It means taking a picture for every day of the year. I am planning to do it again next year and the next. Maybe I will do it forever because I love it so much and I don't put too much pressure on myself. If I get behind. I just take a few days and take some pictures to make up for it. I used my The ABC's of the Bryce Family  challenge to use up days I missed also. I have already posted most of my best pictures of the year, but I will post here a few more of my favorites from Project Life, 2010.

I had a friend ask me how I was doing the journaling, so I thought I would explain. I have built myself a power point template that I use over and over again. I simply print my journaling for six cards on a piece of paper and then adhere my 6 cards to it with 2 sided photo splits and trace around the corners. Then I send it through the computer again, it prints on the cards this time. I carefully pull off the cards leaving the photo split "stickies" (as I call them). I then retype my next 6 journaling cards on my template leaving them in the same place, put my next six card back on that same paper and send them through the computer. I can do 4 or 5 months worth of journaling in one day! I also like to embellish my journaling cards with a few extra stamps that I have.

When I take a lot of extra pictures, I use Photoshop Elements to put 2 or more pictures on one photograph for the project. For that you would have to know a bit of photo shop.

I love it when my kids work together

This is where some of our family missionaries are

We were blessed enough to meet Kitty De Ruyter Bons at girl's camp and hear her story. Her book is "As I Have Loved You", and it's the most amazing story you will ever hear!

I ate so many cherries this year
