Sharing some exciting news! And a Project Life Spread

I will be joining the Project Life Creative Team for the  Life in Details Challenge Blog

The blog is for Project Lifers and Smashers!  Every month a challenge is posted and participants can link up their creations in a couple of easy steps.  The winner of the challenge will be asked to be a guest designer for a future challenge.  

The February Project Life challenge is to use Pink and/or Red as primary colors.

Project Life  2009 Week 7
Yes you read it correctly...2009!  I have FINALLY started working on my 2009 album.  The pictures and journaling have been in the album for years.  2009 was my first PL year and I struggled for many reasons to complete the album. 

Project Life 2009 Week 7 
2 page spread
Since I started working on the album a week ago I have completed 3 two page spreads!
I plan on using PL monthly kits to stay current with 2014 and to catch up with 2009.  I have some unused monthly kits and have significantly reduced my subs.  Right now I am only subbing to ONE PL kit club.  I made this decision a while ago and already feel less overwhelmed with new products.
For this spread I used a variety of elements from past Studio Calico, Gossamer Blue and Citrus Twist kits.  The spread is fairly simple.  I added a blank grid card to some of the filler cards to be able to journal on them. I did that with the red chevron and the red card with the hearts.
Even after 4 years ( I skipped 2010 and regret it ALL OF THE TIME) of using the pocket pages style I am still really enjoying this type of scrapping.  The one regret I have about 2009 is that I had a really bad camera and the pictures are very dark.  For about a minute I thought of reprinting them but quickly realized that would be JUST CRAZY!  
How are you coming along with your Project Life album?

Thanks for stopping by.
