I, too, was bitten by the "Project Life" bug -- it seems like everybody I "follow" in the scrapbooking world is doing it this year. I toyed with picking up the album, inserts, kit, etc., but at the time I was considering it, the page protectors that I found most desirable were sold out. I decided to go my own way (and, candidly, save some money.) I'm using an album I already had, and am reusing some 8.5 x 11 sheet protectors I had kicking around. I'm doing one page per week in a hybrid manner. I find that doing only one page per week means I have to pare down the pictures and journaling much more than if I was doing a two page spread each week, but I have a small family and a pretty routine existence, so I think this works! Honestly, the ease of just printing the page on cardstock each week, with no measuring, trimming, etc. insures that it remains fun and doable for me. I want this to be manageable and fun.
