Fast forward to now and I have a budding photographer and Project Life fan. The latter not because of me either! So what changed her? The starting point was a Blogger/vlogger she follows who made a video about making a Project Life album using Becky Higgins Project Life products. She'd also referenced following A Beautiful Mess blog. Obviously Anna started connecting the dots and realised I was on the Becky Higgins Creative Team. And I had a copy of the A Beautiful Mess photography book.
And so that started hours of conversation about her starting an album. Her main concern was that she wasn't a great photographer. A few lessons on light and where to place things from what I've learned and she was away. She's a natural!
She also said something else which made me think. She thought my pages were too professional and unattainable for her. Meant in a complimentary way, however I want to point out that I've developed my own easy (for me) system and totally get that some couldn't be bothered with the digital creating part of it. That's what I love. She just wants to keep it simple and that's great.
So we found her a couple of mini kits in a sale. She chose Dazzle and Daydreamer which coordinate beautifully. Elsie and Emma's book also stayed in her room for a few weeks and she used it as inspiration. (See her cover shot).

Today is a day off school for my two and so Anna and I are off to get some photos printed and putting pages together later. Happy times:)
