At the beginning of the year I order my Project Life Kit which is designed from Becky Higgins and couldn't wait for it to arrive so I could make a start!
When I first read about these kits a few years ago, I thought they were a great concept.
I choose to have my album as a weekly update, so over the past 9 months I have been good and I have tried to keep up to date with adding photos and journaling.
Some weeks have been easier than others to update, but I must admnit there have been weeks where nothing exciting has happened in my life apart from going to work and coming home!
It has certainly made me make sure I always have my camera or iphone with me, cause you just never know when a photo opportunity my happen!
So below are a few of my weeks that I have completed in my Project Life Album 2011. I still have a few spots to fill here and there, but overall I am happy and proud of myself that I have been able to keep up with this!
The Project Life Kits for 2012 have been released and you can ready more about them at Becky's Blog.

I recently made this cute little 6x6 Mini Birthday Book using the Happy Day Collection Kit from Simple Stories.
These Collection Kits are great for doing these types of projects, the only extra items I used to complete this project was the Chipboard (used to make the base of my book) Ribbon and Jump Rings, everything else was already in the Simple Stories Collection Kit.
It has been ages since I have made any mini albums and I forgot how much fun and how quick they are to complete once you get a theme and roll with it!
It has been so long since I have done any serious scrapbooking and I've been looking at all my photos that I have been taking over the past few years since I got my new Digital SLR (including 3 overseas trips)and thinking I am never going to catch up!
So I was really happy when I saw these kits. Simple Stories have heaps of different themed Collection Kits, so I'm pretty sure this won't be the last one I use.
Getting back to the 6x6 Mini Birthday Book, I used over 60- 3x4" photos that I had of my niece's 2nd birthday from last year. I originally started with 10 pages in the mini album but I used the 6x4" tags that are in the kit to make extra pages which I used for photos, journaling and sub titles.
