Project 365

I am so excited about this new project that I have started. It is called Project 365. The basic concept is to take a picture of a specific moment everyday and scrapbook it. It is a way to capture what really happens with your family. It is not just scraping a birthday and Christmas over and over again. At first I thought that it would be too much work but as the days have gone by (all 7 of them) I have realized that I am looking for those moments to capture. There are lots of ladies in the digital scraping world that have started doing this and are providing templates for every week. ( If you are not a scrapbooker just blog your weekly pictures ) There are lots of ideas out there to help you get different photos for everyday. Here are some ideas:
* whats for dinner
* breakfast
* places you go
* bed head photos
* games you play
* funny things kids do
* the view from your windows
* your yard in the spring
* favorite things in your home
I have posted my layout for the first week. As you can see I am still missing a picture. I am not going to get discouraged because I forgot one day. ( I am just going to cheat and put something else in it's place.)
I hope you guys have liked my new project. Let me know if you are going to do it and if you have any great ideas! Happy Scrapping!

I've been reading all about this for months in the magazines and blogs. That's fun that you decided to do it. I'm definetely keeping the idea in mind. But I figure pictures of just me or Ave everyday would just be really borring 365 times. I do think more about random activities we do or good friends I meet up with, I want to save those moments more when I think of them. But maybe the 365 project will have to wait until there are more entertaining baby Johnson's running around. Keep posting your layouts!
