I feel like a genius! :) Project Life...

I actually learned something, had an A-HA moment, found something that ACTUALLY pertains to me and Scrapbooking.  I feel excited, it might not be new to you but to me it's like HALLELUJAH!   I was reading On Marcy Penner's blog about project life and she posted THIS tutorial!  I loved her digital elements but didn't really care for the colors (I literally had one of her items in my cart the day before but didn't buy it because of the colors!)  So after I saw this tutorial I jumped at the chance to buy something from her etsy shop and got busy changing colors in Photoshop Elements.  (that was one of my scrappy goals--getting to know Photoshop Elements better...)

Then yesterday I was reading Becky Higgins and she mentioned that the lady who designed the Clementine edition of Project Life had come out with digital journaling cards.  They can be found HERE.  Guess what?!  You can manipulate them and move them change the color AND they are on sale!

and TODAY Rhonna Farrer gave another tutorial on changing colors!  You can see it HERE, I haven't had time to play with that idea and have NO idea if it will work with Photoshop Elements but I thought I would pass on the knowledge any how!

With all the ideas floating around I decided to make a Project Life board on Pinterest you can see it HERE.  I do have a follow me button on my side bar as well ---->

Here is page 1 of my project life....
page 2:
I promise to take better pictures next time.  I've decided to be more organized about it.  I use a project folder to collect pictures, and memorabilia.  then I journal on Monday, I have been journaling about each day in my notes section of my computer--this is linked up in icloud from my phone as well.  It's a pretty cool feature.  Once I journal that certain day I delete it off my calendar....I feel SO MUCH better about this process--organized and free.  Last year I was hit and miss with the journaling and had to go back and remember and i couldn't and I felt bad, this way feels more like me and MORE fun!
I would love to hear about your project life experiences please feel free to share your links in the comments section!
Thanks for stopping by!

Great job Diana! I am so proud of you. My page is sitting half done. I have to print some photos. So...how did you do the photo with the multi-pics on it? We should definitely get together and scrap sometime!
Thanks for the tutorials. Good idea & a great goal. One I should go for too.
