Project 365

You can read about the whole Project 365 saga here, but today's post is about me finally doing it!

I have decided that this will be my family album for 2009. This way, instead of being a year behind, I can easily work on it a bit at a time and be done by the end of 2009 (or soon thereafter). Plus, my album will contain lots of little things that define and illustrate us as a family, rather than just the big events. Big events may get their own pages within the album, or a mini album all their own. As for the biggest event of the year (coming in just a few weeks!), she gets her own album anyway. :)
So, everyday I take a picture, and everyweek or so, I print them out, journal about them and put them in the album. I am not doing much ocassional stamp or sticker, but pretty much using what came with the kit and getting it done. May be the first time in my scrapbooking tenure (12 years worth) that I am "caught up."
Here's my workspace:
And a few completed pages:

I did this layout digitally through Creative Memories Storybook Creator Plus software.

I bought the program awhile ago and have been using it for little things here and there. Have been making due with the free downloads, and the papers and embellishments that came with it, but may buy some other downloads as I finally begin my 2008 album (still thinking it might be digital!).
Here's another project I did. I have been making my Mom and MIL calendars every year, and this year, I did them digitally, so I only had to create one set and print it multiple times.

I actually printed 4 copies, giving my sister and myself one, too! SO EASY!
