Practical Scrappers Blog Hop: Project Life

***Keep Scrolling down to the next post to see today's Inspired by Pinterest creation!***

Hello and welcome to the PRACTICAL SCRAPPERS and SCRAPTOWN LADY Blog Hop!  So glad that you stopped by today! 
 
I LOVE Project Life and I simply use it for Project 365, Picture of the Day.  Meaning that I take one picture per day that makes it in our Project Life album.  At the end of the year, I have an album full of 365 of my favorite pictures of every day life and some special events thrown in there too!
 
I currently use Becky Higgins' products.  This year I am using the Seafoam Kit.
 
So here is my basic process and one of my layouts of pictures I took back in January.
 
I have to start the week with Sunday...it's just natural for me!  I normally will do all 4x6 pictures, with some Instagram picture thrown in this year, because I now have a smart phone!  Hello 2013!

In all of my scrapbook pages, not just project life, I use my own handwriting.  There is something about handwriting...it's part of a person and I want my kids and future generations to know that part of me.  I could pick my Grandma's, Mom's or Dad's handwriting out anywhere.  It's a special connection!

My daughter is 4 years old and she loves being artistic.  This is so much a part of our every day life that I have to add in her creations!  I slip them into an 8.5x11 page protector.

Sometimes I will have a lot of art work for a layout.  This week I just chose 4 pictures!

I mentioned earlier that I have started to use Instagram pictures some of the time.  When I have a 4x4 Instagram print, I take a 4x6 blank grid card and use a little washi tape on each side to give a little decoration!
 
Some weeks I will had in stamps and embellishments more than others...this just wasn't one of those weeks!

I like how you incorporate the Instagram pics on the 4x6 cards, and I totally agree with you about the handwriting,

Great pages. I agree with you on adding handwriting. I'm pretty passionate about it and bring it up in all my classes. My scrapbook students probably get sick of hearing me talk about it haha Loved seeing your take on PL.
