A new approach to Project 365 for 2010 - Week 1

I really enjoyed doing Project 365 last year, and wanted to do it again this year but out of necessity had to change it up a little. I have so many other projects I want to do this year as well, that I had to find a way to simplify P365 in order to make it less time consuming. The scrapping part of it anyway. Enter stage right, Biograffiti's P365 Simple Solution Templates. How perfect. I knew as soon as I saw them that that was the way I wanted to go. I was lucky enough to win the January pack on her blog, and couldn't wait to scrap with them.

They're also available in 8.5x11 size too.

I quite like that she provides a journalling prompt with each template set. Last year I just wrote a small caption/story about each photo, but having thought about it now, I quite like the idea of a running commentary about whatever theme is going on that week. Something a bit more flowing. I think journalling is essential (for me anyway), and I'm excited to share a little bit more about our family life, dreams and aspirations on this years Project 365. So, without further ado, here are my first pages...simple and not overly embellished...

I am stunned!! Seriously!! I searched for days and days (almost 2 weeks) for what I wanted to do for 2010 P365. I saw these templates from Scrapartist and thought long and hard. I ended up abandoning them because I felt they were "too simplistic". I went a different way, BUT now I am almost regretting it. YOUR WORK WITH THEM IS GORGEOUS!!! I really mean it. If I had the vision you did, whew. Great job!!
