Album 2 Project Life 2011

As promised a look into the second album of my Project Life for 2011. Originally I had planned on showing you this video earlier, but this album includes the time period when my foster brother passed away. I think it's important to document every aspect of our lives...not just the happy times....but the real stuff.....the painful stuff....I think it helps with the healing process....at least it has for me.....and I think it will help for my girls to read it later on in life....to see that life isn't a bowl of ice cream all the time.....life is full of struggles....but life is also full of happiness....life is a balance of emotions....I want them to know that.....

So it's taken me some time to figure out exactly how I want to document his passing. It's painful and my emotions are still so raw....it's been five months since he died...some days it feels like it was just yesterday and other days it feels like its been years....next month he would have turned 26.....So I wasn't quite ready to share everything about the funeral yet....I still have more stuff I want to add to the pages, more thoughts I want to incorporate, and more ideas I want to discuss with you about how to document grief into your albums...so what I've decided to do is gloss over that section in the album and come back to it at a later time.....when I'm ready....because I don't want to put off showing you the video any longer....so without ladies and gentlemen.....here it is album 2 of my project life 2011 albums.

  1. How often do you print pictures and work on layouts? I love your albums. How much time do you spend on the computer with your pics before printing?

  2. Thank you for sharing! Your first(?) video was the reason I started Project Life in December and your videos are the perfect inspiration to keep me going.

  3. So very inspirational!! Just ordered a big stack of photos from Costco & ordered a new We R Memory Keeoers album to begin album #2 for 2011. As I was watching this latest video, it cut off unexpectedly....was it just my computer??
    Also, I would love for you to do a post on your process when putting together your album. Overlays, brushes, etc...to uploading, to printing, etc... I love the look of overlays & brushes but when I get behind on my album, I end up just printing as is & sticking them in.

  8. Great inspiration! Thank you so much for sharing. I love your map idea. How do you attach the photo holders so they open / extend? Maybe you explained that in your first video...I still need to watch that one. Beautiful work!
