Favorite Project Life Layouts from 2013

Happy Tuesday my friends, today is an exciting day in our little house in North Carolina. School was cancelled today because it is suppose to snow this afternoon, a 100% chance to be exact. I know for many of you this seems kind of silly (maybe even downright ridiculous) to cancel school when it hasn't even snowed yet. I find it humorous, but when you live in the south, there are no snow plows, and not much infrastructure to help with snow, so everyone kind of overreacts and panics. I am hoping for at least 4 inches so that I can get some good pictures. I am not really a cold weather person. Not. At. All. I like warmth, not being cold. Brrrr….I am however super excited about the possibility of taking snow pictures today (for Project Life of course,) we'll see how long the kids hold up, we don't have snow gear, so it will be interesting. There probably won't be much snow so it shouldn't really matter either way. Is it just me, or does that sound like famous last words? It's like I am tempting fate. :-)

Ramble over, today I am not going to share the last few pages of my 2013 album like I had planned, you will have to wait for that until tomorrow. I am sorry about that, I do not quite have those ready yet, I blame my camera, well actually me, because I accidentally deleted the pictures. *hanging head in shame* Don't you hate it when that happens? I will be re-taking some pics today and sharing those pages tomorrow. Today however, I will be sharing my 10 favorite Project Life pages from 2013. I had a lot of fun reminiscing and coming up with my top 25 layouts from 2013 last week, and it seems like many of you enjoyed it, so hopefully you will like my round-up of Project Life from 2013 today as well.

Thank you so much for joining me today at life, scrapbook, repeat. If you liked looking through these Project Life layouts, there is a direct link on the right side of this blog if you look under "labels" and click "Project Life Tuesday." You will find lots of Project Life posts there. I also have a You Tube channel and currently have one video uploaded, but will have another one ready to go very shortly. My link to this video on my You Tube Channel is HERE if you are interested. I would love it if you subscribed to my channel and follow along. I plan on making 2 Project Life videos a month and subscribing is the easiest way to make sure you see each and every one. :-)

Let's talk Project Life today. Are you still loving the process? Are you new to Project Life? Or are you wondering what in the heck it is? Where do you fall in these categories? If you are new to Project Life, and curious about what it is, I highly recommend watching the video at this link HERE. This short video by Becky Higgins, the creator of the entire Project Life concept, is just a perfect explanation. If you have any ideas for future Project Life topics I can include on the blog, I would love to hear your ideas. I want to make this blog a place that truly inspires others to document their lives and have fun along the way. I would love to hear your suggestions and comments. Until next time….

Happy Scrappin'




  1. We're equipped for snow here, and yet everyone panics anyway. So many fantastic details on your pages, Toni! I especially loved the hand stitching and the spread about your hubby! Stay warm! :)

  2. Wow, wow, wow! Your photos and your spreads are all fantastic. I really love the soft photos and how your spreads are always a mix of different things. I've been doing PL for a few years and still loving it but I do need a fresh jolt of inspiration every once in a while.

    1. Thanks so much for the great compliment, isn't Project Life just the best?
