Project Life Post + Giveaway + Blog Hop Extravaganza


This week marks the third anniversary of Project Life, and all week at Becky's blog, fun and merriment and cool stuff are happening. Today, I get to share my weekly Project Life with you, give something away, and send you off on our Creative Team blog hop, for more sharing and giveaway goodness. 

First up, my Project Life for Week 39. Let's just get to the pics, shall we?


I want to sum up in one succint sentence what it is that I love about this project, and why it clicked for me this year. I've talked about it for 39 weeks now. This should be an easy summation, right?



It lets me save my life.  

That's it. That's totally it. I get to save all the stuff I want to remember and I get to do it in a way that feels authentic to me and my scrapbooking style and approach.





It lets me save my life. That's it. Short and sweet!

THE GIVEAWAY: But, let's get onto the good part: giveaways. Today, I'm giving away the following products to one blog reader. 

6x12 Page Protectors 2130 copy Grid Cards - 3x4 2062 copy

The 6 x 12 Page Protectors plus the 3 x 4 Grid Cards are up for grabs. Just leave me a comment today about anything you like and you're entered to win. I will choose a winner on Friday afternoon.

NEXT UP: The Blog Hop

Be sure to visit our entire creative team today, for more Project Life goodness and sharing and giveaways. 

Note: Giveaway is only open to U.S. residents as the prizes are shipping directly from Amazon. Sorry for this inconvenience to my international readers.
This giveaway is now closed. I will notify the winner via email tonight.


These are wonderful additions to project life, and I'd be so happy to add them to my collections. Thanks, Cathy!

I wholeheartedly agree about the hair, of all the parts of us that we can "decorate" it's the most forgiving and easily remedied if it turns out to be a disaster.

Thanks for the giveaway! I love this project too - how it captures tidbits of our life that might otherwise go unnoticed and be forgotten!

Thanks Cathy for the chance to win.

Wow, your pages are so totally inspiring! I was caught in a rut, but now I see the Way. Thanks for sharing, and for a chance to win.

Thanks for all the inspiration. I am new to project life and I appreciate you sharing your pages. Blessings.

Just a fine giveaway! Love it!
Have a nice day, Cathy!

I really wish I would have started PL when I purchased the first PL kit.

Great giveaway!

So excited t start project life! Would love some supplies to get going!!

I love Project Life!

I started PL in June and I LOVE IT. So thanks for the chance !

Your pages are so inspiring. Thanks for the chance to win some Project Life goodies!

I so so so love your attitude about Aiden's hair and your response to her. But how cool is it that it's now documented forever in your PL album? I love it!

Your blog is one of my daily reads. You are truly inspirational.

Thanks Cathy, I'm still debating on PL - but seeing 2013 as my year.

A great giveaway! I'm on year two of project life and loving it!

I completely agree with your attitude on hair. It is such a great, non-permanent way to express yourself. That's why I let my 7th grade daughter "kool aid" dye her hair. She is blond and the ends are bright red!

I think I will put that in my PL album, too. Thanks for the idea.

p.s. would love to win!

I sure would like to do this too, it's hard to know where to start with all the supplies ya know? LOVE your album and I hope when my daughter wants to do something drastic to her hair that I will remember your thoughts.. you're totally right.. it's just hair and it's HER hair!!

I love your view on hair! I feel the same way... it grows back!! :) She looks great! Thanks for the chance to win.

Sadly i have slacked off since June, but i like that i could go back and catch up or even just start from today.

What wonderful giveaways. I LOVE project life!!

Absolutely love this. Love your style, love your words. Love it all. :)

Love that this project helps to remind me that "we're all a work in progress"!

I love PL and the ability to do simple LOs or go all out. It is PERFECT! :D
Thank you for the chance to win.

It is my first year using PL thanks to your and Ali's inspirational blogs. Particularly love the get real aspect of your approach and the simplicity of the concept (pages with pockets for cards and photos) so easy and just right for me.

Thanks for the giveaway! Love your blog.

Great giveaway...thanks!

This is my first year for Project Life and I am loving it! Living life is time intensive...recording it is a breeze with this system! Thank you for the opportunity to win!

Love Project Life too! One of my favorites are the blank journaling cards! Love to decorate them myself! Thanks for the inspiration and the chance to win!

What a fun giveaway. Thanks for sharing the life you are saving.

Cathy, I just wanted to say that I don't care if I win anything... I just want you to know that since I have discovered you in the last couple months (via BPC and PL) I have found you to be very inspiring. Thank you for your honest creativity in all you do! :-)

Love your Project Life posts! I am still working on finishing up last years project life and keeping pictures and journaling for this years. I am slowly but surely catching up!

Oh Cathy, I so adore how you've done your Project Life - it didn't happen for me this year, for various reasons, but I have (realistic!) plans for how to make it work for me next year, and I've been so inspired by all the little details you include, thank you :)

I read your blog every day... and LOVE it!

I like this giveaway :)

I use the 6x12 protectors to hold programs from recitals and shows, just cut off the top 3-4 inches and the folded 81/2x11 programs fit perfectly.

Would love to add these to my collection.

Thanks for the chance to win!

I want to see the results of Aidan's hairy adventure! Has she done it yet?

And just when I was thinking that I don't remember seeing any pet pictures on here and that you need a cat, I spot a pic of Aidan holding a cat. Is it yours?

It's snowing here, Cathy, & cold! I would love to warm my heart with some Project Life goodies!

love this whole project life concept.

Yes, it is brilliant that the kids don't need a date for the dance, and Cole's coach has probably seen the size of his hands!

Definitely put me in for the PL giveaway - I may be behind, but I'm working on it and I'm loving the results!

Just keep's getting better and better:)

I have yet to start my Project Life... so this would be a great time to start gathering supplies! Thank you for a chance to win.

PL has definitely made me more aware of the everyday. Thanks for the chance to win, Cathy.

I'm really going to try it next year thanks to your stick-to-it-ness and inspiration! Already ordered some of the materials, of course these would make it even better!

I quote..."that book with all the little pockets, that's your best [scrap]book ever" said by my husband.

Thanks Project Life.

I love pie.

(Well, you *did* say leave any comment.)

Have a fab da, Cathy!

I Love PL. Thanks Cathy!

I am inspired by your pages, though I've yet to complete one myself. In Becky's class so that is about to change!!!

(That would be day, not da.)

I am envious of your glorious fall weather. Here in the deep south, 86 degrees is the expected high :( Thanks for the chance to win. I love the larger protectors!

Great pages as always. Love BH's products!
Thanks for the chance to win some!

Thanks Cathy. Wasn't going to enter because I'm not confident about using the 6x12. . .but maybe I need to shake it up a little :)

Your creativity inspires me! Oh and I LOVE project life!

Awesome giveaways. Love my Project Life (third year to do it)!

Thanks, Cathy! Hoping to get started on PL in 2013, maybe before year end if I'm lucky!!

i am loving the blog hop today!! :)

i just started my PL album 3 weeks ago & am 100% hooked! i'm trying to slowly accumulate supplies, though. this would help!

*sigh* should have skipped your blog today. I KNEW there would be food pictures lol. Strict diet for awhile. Those apples looked good and I can't even have those! I will comfort myself with the giveaway lol.

LOVE LOVE LOVE Project Life. LOVE your blog!
Thanks for the chance at some cool freebies!

I have avoided Project Life up to this point because I was too afraid I wouldn't be able to stick to the commitment once made. But I've heard so many scrapbooking friends say they love it... to the point that I've signed up for the BPC class Project Real Life just to see what I think about it and whether 2013 will be my year!

Well i need to get past thinking my life is boring now that i am empty nest. Of course i have years of photos that i can go back and work on. But i am beginning to think i have something to still share. Don't get me wrong, i love empty nest and my husband, just not sure how many pictures i can take of my computer, or food, etc. ( : Thanks!
