What to do with the 52 Project Weekly Pictures

So a couple years ago, I started doing Project Life digitally. I loved it, but unfortunately got too busy and I never finished the year and never got back to it. :-(  I make a photo book for both Jackson and Avery every year for their birthday but still knew I wanted to do some kind of family album for me. So when I started doing the 52 Project this year, I thought about starting Project Life again, but I just really don't have time to do it.

 So I decided to use the concept for Project Life but simplify it some and make it more of a monthly thing rather than a weekly thing. Here's what I came up with using picmonkey.com and many of my 52 Project pictures of the kids, plus a few others that I've taken throughout the month. I decided to do 4 pages a month, plus an iPhone picture page.

I have Jan.-Mar. done and plan to complete these pages monthly to keep up-to-date rather than waiting til the end of the year.

I am making a square book using mixbook.com to put them in and will just print it at the end of the year! It's not as cute and fun as I'd like it to be, but it's simple and easy and it will assure I get pictures printed to have them to look at in hand instead of just on my hard drive.

This is great, Amy! I'm bummed we don't get to see your Project Life pages anymore, but I know how hard it is to keep up with! I've wanted to give up on it several times myself. I love what you've come up with though. I know you'll cherish the books forever!
