"Your Life in 2012".

Welcome to 2012 at Scrapbook Divas.

Hope everyone has recovered from their New Years Eve celebrations or for those of you like me started work at 9am this morning.

I thought I would kick off 2012 with something a little different that I haven't done before or been involved with.

Its the Divas version of Project Life, A photo a day, yearly album whatever you would like to call it.

The idea is basically to document 2012 in photos and stories, whether that be daily, weekly, fortnightly or monthly so that our future generations will be able to see what life was like in 2012. It is about documenting the little things, the simple things that happen in our daily lives. As well as all the big things.

So what I hope to do this year is try and document my own story for my family. I know I won't be able to do it daily but will try and do something weekly.

So what I thought I would do is every fortnight on a Sunday I will be posting a theme and some tips on how to document this theme and I am hoping to be able to also have a special guest giving us tips on how to photograph this theme as well.

I will also be posting a sketch either weekly or fortnightly to help with your scrapbooking.

I will be having Guest Designers through the year and their will be prizes for the sketch winners.

Last night I posted a giveaway to kick the year off. A beautiful We R Memory Keepers Album and page protectors valued at $69.99.

here is what you have to do to go in the draw to win this fantastic prize.

1.Make sure you are a follower of this blog, then copy the picture of the giveaway and post it on your own personal blog with a link back to here.
2.Share this giveaway with your friends on facebook.
3.Leave a comment below to say you have done this to be in the winning for this fantastic prize.

A winner will be announced on Sunday 15th Janaury 2012.

So the first theme for the fortnight is "2011". I thought that we could do a double page layout with some of our favourite images/photos from 2011. This sketch  is compliments of  Page Maps.

So let the year begin.
All the photos or layouts can be uploaded to the photo album in facebook
also to the Scrapbook Divas Gallery

Awesome idea! Looking forward to seeing how this goes and it is great inspiration. I would probably forget to do the daily thing but usually already take a photo of something weekly so that's definitely achievable!

Hi Michelle
I am a follower on facebook and have copied the photo and link on facebook. I don't have a blog. Downloaded the app for project 365 the other day and have started to document photos daily so would love to win this prize. Finding it more important to document particulary watching Dads struggle with Alzhiemas and the enjoyment he gets from going through the old photos. Julie Crawford.
