Project Life Tuesday: 2012: Week 13

I thought I was 2 weeks behind on Project Life.... come to find out it was only one week.  For week 12, I didn't really have any pics or other memorabilia, so as much as I hate it I skipped that week.  And for this week I certainly didn't have a "pic a day"  but it was a great week so I included the pics I had, lots of journaling and newspaper clippings.  Turns out, my layouts weren't half bad!  I really just love this project, because I was able to show what  our week was all about with things I threw together last minute.  And I didn't get all caught up in my "pic a day" philiosophy that I started out with. 

This week was all about basketball for us.  Our UK Wildcats made it the Final Four!!! And we played our state rival UL Cardinals.  It was a great week for the state of KY and it was so fun to see all the "hoopla" going around town!!  Our CATS pulled out a victory and are headed to the champioship game!

On the layouts for last week.....

Left page.  I used a newspaper clipping "civil war" to show the intensity of the rival between UK and UL!  I also took a picture of my bracket that I filled out and shrunk it down to fit the 4x6 slot.  I am in LOVE with the black and white polka dot washi tape that I found at Target.... I hope I don't over do it!


I included an insert this week.  I participated in the #Marchphotoaday challenge by fatmumslim over on Instagram.  I loved this challenge.  You take a certain photo each day accoring to the pre-planned template by fatmumslim.  I decided to make a 4x6 collage using 6 instagrams, then cut the pics down to fit in the page protector.  These protectors are coin collecting protectors which can be found on Amazon.  I then used paper from the Clementine collection to do my labeling for the date the pic was taken and what the category was.  I like the way this turned out, but have more ideas for April!  (front side)

Hoping that I can now stay caught up!!  Linking up today with Project Life Tueday over at The Mom Creative.

I ♥ the idea of how you incorporated the pic a day prompts from fatmumslim. I have been wanting to do that, but wasn't sure how to add that into my PLife book. Thanks for sharing!
