I never thought I would be a woman that scrapbooked. I pretty much figured that I was gold if I could keep up with my daughter’s baby book and manage to save all of the photos taken on our devices – DSLR camera, point and click camera, and both iPhones!
I guess you could consider it accidental scrapbooking because I only discovered Becky Higgin’s Project Life concept by chance.

I found their small scrapbooks on an end-cap at Michael’s and loved the concept of the pockets! It keeps it so much simpler with standardized sizing – 4″x6″ and 3″x4″ – and everything looks very neat and cohesive together. You can get wild and do more traditional scrapbooking within each of the pockets but it’s up to you.
