Old School Style Scrapbooking vs. Project Life
For those of you that utilize Project Life or at least know the concept and how it works, I need your input/advice. I started my latest scrapbook on Saturday. I have been really excited about it for quite awhile. It is from the trip I took to Cabo San Lucas for my dear friend Megan's wedding to her high school sweetheart Justin. The whole trip was pretty awesome and I am finally set to document it - old school scrapbook style. All of my pictures are sorted by date and event so I am ready to go. Bur herein lies my dilemma. I did the first two page layout and I am really just not feeling it. Months ago, I bought this package of paper that I just knew was going to be perfect for this project, now that I have started using it, I am just not so sure. Something is pulling me to try to do the whole album PL style. Maybe still use the paper in small doses here and there, but not as originally planned. What are your thoughts on doing an entire trip album PL style as opposed to documenting everyday life? Is it cheating - am I taking the easy way out? Will I be as happy with this album when it is complete as I am with the traditional books that I have done? I would love to know what you think or if you have any ideas. At this point I have only completed two layouts so I am still on the fence...I could go either way. I am attending an all day crop on the 29th, so I have to have a clear direction by then - let me know what you think! Thanks for stopping by!
