As i scanned the blogs one day I kept seeing a consistent theme from all the bloggers posting their project life pages. What I noticed right away was that they were putting items in their pages that traditional scrapbookers don't really scrapbook (but always wanted to). I thought that was cool but not enough to sell me.
I'm a die hard traditional scrapbooker. So seeing something like this makes me skeptical. When I end up in the skeptical zone I scrutinize, I scoff and think no way - it's not for me!
Keep in mind that I'm behind - I know, aren't we all, but I'm REALLY behind. My son's book is only up to his first birthday, he will be 3 this month. My daughter who just turned 1 doesn't even have a first year book like my son does. UGH behind!
For some reason about two months ago I guess I had seen enough and thou still being really skeptical for some reason I ordered it off of Amazon anyway. When it arrived I looked through it but my lack of excitement made me stick it under my desk, and there it sat until a week ago.
I don't like PL.
I love it.
I wonder what my issue was and why I didn't just trust the genius behind PL - Ms. Becky Higgins with being able to do what I needed to do in WAY less time. The thing that sold me? I am able to capture my memories, jot down all the crazy stuff my 3 year old says and 1 year old does and still use all my traditional sb supplies. In fact is so much less stressful!
You aren't staring at a huge piece of paper. Each page has a bunch of different pockets so it's like doing a bunch of mini sb layouts on one page. It all works together, you can journal (which was a big issue for me) AND you can get the 6x6 paper packs that not only save space but are 1/4 of the price of the big packs!!!!
With that being said I am doing my DD (see earlier post) with PL and loving every page!
