12 {Unique} Things to Include in Project Life

Everybody lookin' forward to the weekend, weekend? {the infamous words of Rebecca Black}

Today I'm sharing some ideas of what to put in Project Life (besides just pictures and journaling cards!) Here are some things I found while looking through my albums that I thought were unique. Feel free to share any thing you've done in the comments section! I'm always up for new ideas!

{1} Thank you cards. I love to re-read notes from family & friends - this one fit perfectly in the 4x6 pocket!
{2} Food labels/packaging. I included this empty packet because that was ALL I could stomach for about 2 months of my last pregnancy!
{3} Pieces of children's coloring or artwork. I included this one because it was the first time my daughter colored just certain parts of the picture (a big milestone!)
{4} Business cards from a place you played, ate, stayed, etc.
{5} Stickers or other "traditional scrapbooking" elements. I pulled this off a birthday card I received and used it on my birthday week's layout.
{6} Clothing tags. This was from my daughter's Christmas Eve jammies - one of our holiday traditions.

{7} Clothing sizes. Yup, I'm admitting my jeans size. Whatever. 
{8} Playbills/tickets. Movie ticket stubs are great too!
{9} Cut a piece out of something. This is cut from a plastic kite we had a blast flying one night. Would I keep the whole kite? Never. But a little piece is fun to include in Project Life. That's why I love this system! It allows you to document things without hanging on to every last little object your kids ever touched!
{10} Your family or personal calendar. This was the page from March (cute TomKat Printable) - which was an insanely busy month for us with a new baby, daughter's 2nd birthday, and our anniversary.
{11} Anything flat and small enough to fit. This tiny little wand I had was perfect for this card about my daughter's Pinkalicious fairy dress. (Thanks, Aunt Holly!!)
{12} Facebook or Twitter updates. I grabbed this one from during the Olympics using the screen capture on my iPhone, but you can also do it from your computer.

Hope that gave you some fresh ideas of things to stick in your Project Life pages. I'm off to put in some pictures I got printed last night (to catch up in my 2010 album!) Have a wonderful weekend!
