Project Life by SU for You Blog Tour - #PLxSU4U

Happy Last Day of August!
Welcome to month #2 of the Oh Snap! Project Life Blog Tour. (#PLxSU4U)

I've teamed up with my 2010 Advisory Board Sisters to bring you all a once a month Blog Hop that highlights all the different creative ideas we have for using Project Life.
Because it's so versatile, you can use it not only for memory keeping, but cards, traditional scrapbooking and your other paper crafting projects.
Look for this logo on the last day of each month and you'll know you've got great creative ideas at your fingertips!

You may have just come from my talented friend Jodi Reinert's blog. I'm sure she had something cute and cool to share with you. If you didn't see her project, you can click back by clicking on the icon below:

So, I told you guys last month that this would be my #yearoflivingawesomely (year of living AWESOMELY).
Because of the crazy busy schedule we've been keeping in our home this year, I knew I'd never be able to document it by scrapbooking the traditional way, so I chose Project Life to help me get it done.
Here is the next page in my 12 x 12 Project Life Album:

One of the things I love is the portability of Project Life.
The month of August flew by for us and I had to take my supplies on vacation with me to complete this page for our blog hop. Ya know what? It was SO easy!
The beauty of this system is that you don't need a ton of supplies to document the important moments in your life.
This next page in my #yearoflivingawesomely book is all about our family Road Trips for my daughter's ice skating team, the National Blades. Kind of ironic that I was on another family road trip when I created it, huh? :)

The photo above is simply showing photos and Project Life cards inserted into the 12 x 12 pocket page. The only embellishments I added were the star and heart stickers that are included in the Accessory Pack. I used the Project Life Journaling Pens to write my commentary - love how precise they are.

This next picture shows the only thing I did uniquely on this layout:

I used one of the clear/colored embellishment punch outs and one of the wood arrows on the outside of my layout to highlight my travel coffee cup in the photo. So easy to add with some Glue Dots.

Even with a memory keeping system as simple as Project Life, you can think outside the "page" and be as creative as you wish. Love that!

Your next stop on the tour is my good friend Stella MacKay's blog. I think she has a little something different and cool to show you today - don't miss it!

Here's the info on some of the products I've used on today's project:

You can place your order in my Online Store for all of these and more Project Life Assortments - including a smaller, 6 x 8 album if you don't want to go for the gusto with a 12 x 12.

Thanks so much for stopping by our Blog Hop today - I hope you've been inspired to do some memory keeping of your own.
Let me know how I can help you!

Happy Creating!
