Project Life: Vacation

Today I am sharing how I am using Project Life to document our family vacation.
We took a vacation to Disney World in late May.  During that trip, I took over 1000 photos, collected endless amounts of memorabilia, and experienced countless wonderful memories with my family.  What better way to document a family vacation than with Project Life?  I can document all the memories and photos as well as organize the memorabilia we collected.

For the cover page of my album, I simply trimmed a photo of Cinderella’s Castle.   One of my favorite places to print 12×12 photos is Mpix.com.  They have wonderful quality photos.   For each park we visited I have a single photo such as this that I will enlarge to highlight that specific day.

The first day of our vacation was the drive from Indiana to Florida.  One may think that is not an exciting thing to document… but the excitement level was HIGH in our car that day.   We allowed our kids to watch endless movies to help pass the time (which was a rare treat and kept everyone sane:).   I listed the movies they watched, the route we took, and the miles we drove.

Saltwater was perfect for documenting this first page!  I even used a pattern paper from Penelope— and it matched wonderfully!   I recently picked up the Project Life Midnight Core kit.  I love the neutral colors and knew it would go well with my Elle’s Studio journaling cards.



We want to feature your Project Life album!  During the last week of each month we will be featuring a couple Project Life spreads that caught our eye in the Member Gallery.  We will be posting Project Life spreads on our blog tomorrow!   If your spread is featured we will be sending you a $5 gift card to use in our store.   Good Luck!
Project Life was created by Becky Higgins as a way to simplify how you document life and preserve memories. Photo pockets used in my Project Life album are created by Becky and can be found here.  You can read of all the Elle’s Studio Project Life posts here.
