Project Life: week 1

I made it through week one! And I don't want to quit yet! Go me :)
I am using an American Crafts album that I had sitting around. I found some cute patterned paper to cover it with, but it's not quite big enough. I've got the think about how I want to proceed.
I borrowed a few page protectors from Nicole, so that I could get started. I also had some 6x12 page protectors that I threw in there. I had to re-punch the holes, but they work just fine. Look at me making due!

I used these templates from Cathy Zielske for the journaling.
I used this template from Ali Edwards on the backside to include a longer story. I've never done much with digital scrapping before, and it took me three times as long as writing out the story would have taken me, but I love the way it looks, and it will only get easier!
I've pulled out a few stamps to add a word each week and some dates. I'm trying to keep it simple. I may decide to go back and add some embellishments at some time, but for right now, it's good.
Except I notice that I forgot to take a photo of the second page by itself.

Look at you, scrappy lady! It looks awesome! Love the 6x12 too. Might need to get that template myself. :)
