Project life and my book of me......

I used to be an avid scrapbooker.  My daughter who is 13 now had about 10 scrapbooks before she was even 10.  I bought every little gadget, gizmo, embellishment, paper, etc that was out there and the in thing at the time.  Needless to say I was always broke from the amount of money I spent.   About 3 years ago I got the cardmaking and stamping bug and decided no more scrapbooks.  I had all the supplies I needed but then decided about a year ago that I wanted to advance further and use Copics etc to make my stamped images pop.. Well I weighted my options and went with the Spectrum Noir Markers and then pencil sets.  I have all and I am in love with both, but I find myself using the pencils more often then not.  Well I have heard and seen all this mumbo jumbo on Project Life and wondered what it was all about... Well it was a system that I liked but had no desire to sink money into.  I have paper coming out of my ears as well as embellishments etc, and a QK SIlhouette that allows for die cutting etc, so I felt investing the money into this new system was way too much on my tiny little crafting budget.  Well I was signed up for the Becky Higgins page etc on Facebook as well as her blog and low and behold... Project life iphone app!  Just up my alley.  The minute I downloaded it and started to play I was addicted.  I ordered a few of the extra sets of layouts and cards and have managed to start a book of me which when done I will print out and place in an 8x8 album.  Now that I have my BOM in mind and started I am looking in to the whole project life idea. I haven't taken pictures on my digital camera in forever.  I tend to use my iphone more, but I am heading to Orlando Florida in March for a much needed vacation with friends and I plan on taking my camera with me.  Between my phone and my camera and my friends I imagine that I will have an album done by the end of the trip.  Here are just a few pages that I have done using the Project Life App by Becky Higgins......

Title Page Book of Me.

Birth page Book of Me

School page Book of Me

I know the android version is not out yet, but if you have an Iphone and want to start doing this then now is the time.  Without this little app, I would still be sitting here thinking about that Book of Me like I have been for about 10 years now.
