Also, wanted to let you u know that I'm working on my 2012 and 2013 album right now.
I had many things go on with my health in the beginning of last year that was a big set back for me in my life and that also included a set back in me scrapbooking my family album. With that said this is why I have both 2012 and 2013 scrapbooks in progress. So you will see many pages that say 2012 but those are actually current things I'm working on. This is where the Project Life Style with my spin on it works great for me.
A little Warning I'm not the best at photographing the Project Life Pages without the glare. This along with working out my skin tones in some of the pics will be my challenge this year! :)
So here it goes:
My Title Page for my 2012 album that I'm currently working on. I use all Becky Higgins Page Protectors for all of my Pages. Love love love this cute paper from American Crafts Dear Lizzy Neapolitian Collection.
Celebrating New Year's Eve with my brother and his family is always the most fun and it has become a tradition each year for us. Paper is from Echo Park, Times & Season's collection.
which I trimmed the top and sides of this page protector to make more of a custom size.
The Back side of above Page Protector.
We where out for a little bike ride to drop some Etsy packages off to the post office and grab some lunch. Bike riding is one of my favorite ways to spend time with my boys.
Of course the birth of my sweet little nephew Max, was a must for his own personal 12x12 page.
I trimmed off the side column of pockets for a more custom size.
Love adding all the fun everyday day pics to my scrapbook without requiring much space but al the fun.
This is a 12x12 page that I choose to incorporate different special memories of the day into one page.
My son's special little girl cat Fozzy Bear needed her own page to highlight all her sweet cuteness. Yes, I know she has a little boy's name for a girl cat but it just fits that silly little girl. :)
Having Fun at CHA, I always say what's most fun about CHA is FRIENDS!!!
My sweet little niece Bunny along with more papers and embellishments from AmericanCrafts Dear Lizzy Neapolitan collection. The doilie paper is from another company.
My sweet little Joshies's 13th birthday we celebrated at Farrell's Ice Cream Parlor. It's such a fun experience to share something from my day with the kid's and for them to love and get as much joy out of it as I did when I was a little kiddo.
Once again I trimmed off the side page pockets to customize for my photos.

We celebrate Joshie's birthday all week long and he likes to celebrate with FOOD!!! :)
Our day we spent in Chinatown and Joshie got some acupuncture to better help his Type 1 diabetes.
Mogi's (Jason) First school dance.
a last minute Real Housewives of the OC premiere party night with friends!!!
My Sweetheart and I out for a little quiet time for dessert and latte's at Crepe de' Paris, on Valentine's.
Then it was home to make homemade heart shaped pizza's with the kiddo's and enjoy Valentine's as a family. Yes, we had dessert first! :)
I ended up i the hospital later that night on Valentine's with the worse debilitating severe pain to my head, blacking out in the emergency room and spending some time in the hospital. With a much long year of recovery from this event. I've come along way from where I was almost a year ago and I still continue to research to find the best possible options for my health. I continue to get better all the time.
My Birdie, (husband's) Birthday! :)
Last but not least this is scrapbook page is my latest I did last week at a crop of my o' so sweet little niece bunny. The papers and colors where so fun to use on this little layout.
I hope you enjoyed seeing my pages that I'm currently worked on and how I use the Project Life style in my scrapbooks for all my special everyday pics, just without scrapbooking each week in a double page spread. This has really made it freeing for me to work at my own pace.
