New Year, New Project (Life)!

Happy 2013!  I think it's going to take a while before I get used to not writing (or typing) 2012.  I'm not really one for New Year resolutions, but I do think it's a great time to start something new.  Hmm, isn't that what resolutions ARE?  Anyway, I wont put a title to it - I don't want the pressure.

I've decided to give a stab at Project Life.  I found Cathy Zielske's blog last year and have been stalking her on a regular basis.  When I read her blog I think she's talking to me (I'm not nuts, I know she's not).  After watching her Project Life tutorials and how to incorporate Photoshop Elements to create journals and graphics, I was sold.  My only computer was old, too small and very slow.  Her videos convinced me that I needed something bigger and better.  December 26 my new iMac was delivered.  Holy Moly, Batman!  Over the past week I have been learning a new operating system (my old laptop was a PC), documenting and taking pictures of life happenings and learning Photoshop Elements.  Whew, I'm tired.

I'm taking a pretty basic approach and following whatever Cathy does.  I like her style and love the designs she creates.  I've purchased a basic album,  a few photo pocket protectors, and downloaded a few of Cathy's templates from Designer Digitals.  Now, our life isn't all that exciting and we don't have my book may be thin - but heck, it's my book!
