my desk is a mess!

Because I'm finishing up my first Project Life spread, which I am making in a monthly format.
I can't wait to share it with you.

It's taken me a few days because:
1) I'm new to the process.
2) I had to look through every color bin of embellishments to make sure I wasn't missing anything.
3) I had to cut apart and corner round every element.
4) I had to run tiny bits through my printer and say ugly words lots of times. Like this - "Ugly words! Ugly words!!"
5) I'm slow as a snail when it comes to papercrafting.
6) I had to look through 500 examples of PL to make sure I was doing it my favorite way! (I'll be sharing a lot about that.)
7) I had to run to Sam's for pictures twice....the second time was to reprint some that were terribly dark (iPhone pics).

But it's almost done and I will share it tomorrow so meet me back here tomorrow and we'll talk all about it!

I have to confess - I'm hooked!

This made me laugh! I can relate...especially the printer and repeating to myself "ugly words!" You are doing yours 1 month at a time? that would be more my speed than every week...

This is going to be fun, I can tell! Looking forward to see your process!

That's awesome - I can't wait to see it! LOL about ugly words, ugly words! It's taking me a long time too. The part that's holding me up is running the cards through the printer too. But I think I'm about to get that down. I set up a custom size to print 3x4 cards so I don't have to test and tape with another sheet. Anyway, I can't wait to check our your first spread!

This is too funny, but I am sorry for all your pain, PL is supposed to make your scrapping life easy-breazy.

It wasn't pain - I enjoyed every moment! Even the ugly words moments!
