Project 52

I wanted to share a creative project idea that I have planned for this year that I found over at Balzer Designs. Project 52, as described by Julie Fei-Fan Balzer, embraces the idea of getting a year of your life recorded in some way. I have decided to create an 8 1/2 x 8 1/2 journal/scrapbook to represent an event, experience, emotion, or thought for each week of 2009.

I have an On Board Journal of this size from Stampin' Up! that I plan to cover with Designer Paper. I am not planning on limiting myself to any certain color scheme or format other than size. I am excited about the freedom this lack of "rules" allows me. Really looking forward to beginning. I already have the idea for my first week' s page!

I'd love to have you join in on this journey. I hope my resolve to post the layouts here will keep me on track. Let me know when you've created your first layout and post a link to it in the comment section. I hope to get mine done some time this week.

Thanks for checking in... Lisa :)

Update on my hubby...Much better today! X-rays looked good...back on full liquid diet tomorrow! Hopefully, we'll be home in a few days. Thanks for your prayers!

Lisa!! This is such a good idea. I saw a similar project in Creating Keepsakes magazine. They had a 365 Days kit available, but it sold out in like 2 days. I have a weekly calendar that I could use...hmmm.....
