This week we're working on Project Life layouts - have you caught the PL bug yet? I'll admit, I haven't totally jumped on board. I think the concept is fantastic and it's so cool that Becky Higgins is collaborating with Stampin' Up to create these adorable products!
The only reason for my hesitation is that PL just isn't my style. I know a lot of people are making the switch to "memory keeping" but I'm still old school and still prefer "scrapbooking". I love to create entire layouts around just a few pictures. Or sometimes just one picture! But...I think it may grow on me. Especially when I can finish albums quickly and get caught up on my kids' scrapbooks. For now, I'm trying to combine my style with the PL style. It's still a challenge for me but with any luck I'll find a happy medium and keep getting better with practice!
I chose to start with some pictures from our summer vacation to Utah. In the few years that we've been gone, my parents decided that they wanted to raise chickens for the eggs and to help cut down on the bugs in the garden. With my brothers' help they built an adorable chicken coop.
I knew Andrew and Simon would be excited to see the chickens, but I didn't expect it to hold their interest for long. Boy was I wrong! The boys loved gathering the eggs, feeding the chickens and of course - chasing them around the yard. I think the chasing was Simon's favorite part. I have about a bazillion pictures of the boys and the chickens, so a PL layout is definitely the best way to scrapbook all of them.
Cindy is up next on the hop and I can't wait to see what she has to share with us! Hope you enjoy our layouts :)
