I found five great blog posts that I wanted to share with you.
1. Becky Higgins posted 10 reasons to start Project Life on her blog. You'll have to scroll down in this blog to read her reasons, but if you've been thinking about this, this will push you to do it.

2. White space defined by American Crafts:
White space is an important principle of design. White space is nothing. White space is the absence of text and graphics. It breaks up text and graphics. It provides visual breathing room for the eye. Add white space to make a page less cramped, confusing, or overwhelming.Frankly, the idea of white space is confusing and overwhelming to me! ;-)
They have a whole week devoted to white space. The layouts *are* beautiful and inspiring!

3. Guest blogger Julie Kirk posted 5 ideas on how to use pages from old books on Shimelle Laine's blog. My two faves: as definition or as a background.
