Memory Keeping with Project Life by Stampin'Up Blog Hop..... Hello December!

Although I had decorated the outside of my December Daily album and even made the title page, until this weekend, I hadn't had a lot of time to get started on actually putting the pages together. I was also quite ill for the second half of last week, which did slow me down considerably.  However I have been making sure I've been taking lots of photos on most days, so when I finally sat down this weekend to put some of the pages together, there was still plenty to work with.

And thats something i love about this system... you can diarise your life in pictures, but without it interrupting your schedule or stopping you from enjoying the moment.  On the contrary, I think it highlights them.  And as it's such a crazy time of year, I find that taking the time out to document what you are doing day to day actually makes you slow down a little, and celebrate all those small moments that you might otherwise just forget about.

I've popped up a few of my favourite pages so far so you can enjoy them too.  I find that the secret to doing a December daily album is to not overthink what you are doing.. keep it simple and keep moving. You can always come back and add more detail/bling/embellishments as needed. Just use photos of lots of everyday moments.. the big and the small... and tell your story.

I really love the colours in this year's December offering. The set is called "Hello December" and I've used both the card collection and various items from the matching Accessory Pack. It's worth mentioning that if you love these too, both are on the retiring list which means that they will only be available until the current catalogue ends on the 4th January 2016. After that they are gone, so grab them while you can! (If you are in Australia and would like to order, you can click HERE to visit the online store)

Beyond all that, I am just excited to be almost up to date with the album! And its already the 14th!

If you would like to come along to learn more about or play more with Project Life, my next Project Life class is on the Tuesday 12th January @ 7.30pm.
