January Scrapbook Tour

So the new year rolled around and we all know that that means new beginnings, new hopes and new hobbies.  I decided that one of my new year, new hobbies would be scrapbooking.  I've always loved taking photos and capturing memories. 
 
In the old days I remember taking my holiday rolls of film to the photo processing shop in town and waiting a couple of days to go and pick them up, excited to see what I'd captured.  When I got home I spent hours putting them all in photo albums with little receipts or memorabilia from my trip. 
 
In recent years, I've not bothered printing out photos, instead I store them on my computer, hard drive and in albums on Facebook.  This kinda made me sad as flicking through a photo album or scrapbook is such an enjoyable experience and one that just isn't recreated by the online or digital counterpart.
 
I decided to go down the Project Life route and I've really enjoyed the whole process of it.  I've seen some amazingly creative and wonderful designs on YouTube and various blogs and mine are definitely not on the same level - but that's ok. 

Here's a little video tour of my first month and what I've chosen to scrapbook or if you prefer scroll down for some pictures.
