Project Life 2015 - Week One / Introduction

Hi everyone! I'm home from a trip to Las Vegas and had such a wonderful time. It's hard to believe that we're already six days into 2015 … why do I have the feeling this year is going to zoom right on by?

As I explained in a previous post (right here), I've decided to try my hand at Project Life this year. I tend to fail miserably at long-term, ongoing crafty projects so I have no idea how long I'll last … but I love the idea of a full year documented, from start to finish. Here are the first two spreads I made, using my January Counterfeit Kit. Although they appear side-by-side here, in my album they are actually front-to-back.

The photos were taken in December, just after Christmas. My mom was here visiting for the holidays, so I had her snap a few pictures of Alan and I … we hardly ever get photos taken of the both of us, so I made sure to grab the opportunity while I had the chance.

This particular Project Life spread is an "intro" spread of sorts, simply documenting the start of a new year. The 3x4 cards I chose all have sentiments that I feel represent our overall attitude as we begin 2015. Some of them I stamped onto the cards myself and others came printed with the sentiments already on them.

"life always offers a second chance, it's called tomorrow"
"the best is yet to come" 
"keep moving forward"
"never say never"
"new beginning // fresh start"
"life is good"
"today I'm excited about everything"

I hope your 2015 is off to a great start! Be sure to swing by the blog again soon as I'll be sharing a layout featuring my goals and resolutions for 2015. And don't forget - if one of your goals for 2015 is to start a blog or improve your existing blog, I wrote a whole post with tips and ideas right here :)
