Project Life 2012 | January

This week I solved a giant dilemma that I perceived with Project Life: what to do with non PL layouts. I don’t know about the rest of the people choosing to do Project Life, but I’m going to want to make normal scrapbook pages once and awhile. And I’ve organized … Read the rest
