Happy New Year!

Happy New Year! I'm so excited to start another year of Project Life.   Even though I'm still working on my 2013 and 2014 albums, I'm starting 2015 and making a resolution to document the previous week each week. As I have time, I'll go back and do a past page. Almost 2 years behind, why don't I throw in the towel you may ask? This is why:

As I'm trying to take advantage of Elmo's hypnosis and photograph my Week 1 layout, my daughter wedges herself between me and the table and SQUEALS in delight when she sees a photo of her and her daddy. Printed out, embellished, and journaled for her to trace with her tiny finger. That's why.

Remind me of this reasoning when I'm, somehow, again, fallen 6 more months behind, k? Deal.

Here's my Week 1 page, minus cute 18 month old. It's one page because Jan 1st fell on a Thursday.

My girl really misses playing outside everyday. On a day where it wasn't so windy and brisk, we bundled up and went to the playground for a 1/2 hour. She was in heaven and even climbed the steps to the slide by herself for the first time (standing up).

I *had* to print out some of my favorite Facebook pics of my team winning the wildcard game. Cowboys fan here. Please don't judge haha. And I'm currently in love with using glitter paper. Everywhere.

My girl's favorite card apparently - her and daddy (and puppy) reading. And a photo marking her 18 month milestone :)

I was inspired to get started on this page earlier this week because of the new challenge at Paper Issues "Popping the Cork". I thought documenting the first week of the new year seemed appropriate! You also needed to use Elle's Studio products. I went through my stash and found this awesome PL stamp set, as well as 2 sets of journaling cards from the Love You More and Penelope lines.

I'm also linking up at Simon Says Stamp for their "Something New" challenge, since I scrapped the new year :) Thanks for visiting today! Hope to be back soon to share more pages. Have a great weekend!

Love everything about it. But the best part is that sweetie happy to look at it. You are so talented and she is so blessed to have you record her precious life for her. Really love all the arrows! Great story about the apple LOL. A page to be proud of.

Don't worry....I will remind you if you need it. Your little girl is beyond precious. I love your pages and the picture of her looking at the picture of her and her daddy is a real keeper. Maybe print it and stick it up over your desk in case you ever feel discouraged.
