Project Life 2012: Weeks 12 & 13

Did I meet my goal of catching up and completing my 2012 Project Life album? Nope. I did not. And honestly, I've thought about quitting, and only time will tell if I do or not, BUT I'm just not ready to throw in the towel yet. I'm a lot farther than week 12 too - I think I'm on week 30. November and December were crazy busy and I just haven't kept up with posting my progress here. I would still like to post all my pages, but I may end up just posting some of the highlights for the remainder of my 2012 pages.

Will I do a 2013 Project Life album? No. Not in this manner anyway. I would like to create a hardbound photo book instead. I will miss being able to include ephemera, but I know this method will be much quicker and easier, and that is more important for my life right now. 

Week 12 consists of  one 12 x 12 multi-pocket page and an 8 1/2 x 11 pocket.

I printed Elijah's Pinewood Derby photos all on one 8 1/2 x 11 page to slip into the page protector. Love this method. No cutting out individual photos - I just printed it, added the title and was done. Behind the photos I included a printout of the derby results.

Week 13 consists of  one 5 x 7 pocket and one 12 x 12 multi-pocket page.

I used the 5 x 7 pocket to include prescription packaging. Since the packaging is a little bulky I secured it to the pocket with a paper clip.

That's it for weeks 12 and 13. Let me know if you have any questions.

I gotta give you credit for trying to stick with it. I'm sure you will cherish it when all is said and done. In 2010 I did an album that has a 2-page layout for each month. I highlighted just a few special moments for the month and it was very doable. I'm thinking about doing the same thing for 2013 using the Graphic 45 collection "Place In Time". Good luck! :-)

Just love what you did with the full page of pics in the page protector. Thanks for sharing that I will look forward to adding pages like that to my book too. (new project life person this year). We take lots of pictures for certain events for a particular day and this is a good idea for that.
