Week 5 - one page - not finished
If you would like to see Week 1 its featured in my previous blog post for February 4th. 
The first 5 weeks of the year has kept me a little off-balance.  After being away the first week of the year I came home to 4 new Big Picture Classes that started while I was away.  The last 4 weeks have been playing catch up on the classes and household stuff.  I'm starting to feel back on track but unfortunately the picture taking for PL has taken a back seat.   That's why Weeks 3 & 4 are combined and Week 5 is quite brief.  As I mentioned in the previous post about Week 1 I really want to keep 2012 to 2 albums so I want to be more selective about which photos I put in the album.  I also want to find ways to include more journaling - to do that I need to work on my page layout and jotting down some thoughts during the acutal week. 
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you are able to leave a comment!  If you would like to see more of my 2012 Project Life journey please sign up to follow my blog.

Here's the entire list of blog hop participants if you want to start at the top and work your way through the entire list.


  1. Hi Lynn! Glad to see you participating in this Blog Hop :) I need to invest in some of those flip-flaps. I have a friend who ended up with three volumes last year for her PL, and I can't imagine. I really try to keep it to one myself, but I see myself adding more inserts this year and branching into two . . . at least the albums are sold seperately this year to help make that more manageable!

  2. Glad to have you participate. This is my first blog hop that I've ever participated and it's lots of fun to see what others have posted. Love your pages and the use of the CTMH flip flaps, I'll have to see if I can get some of those.
    Thanks for sharing!

  3. Hi Lynn,
    Great to see you on the Blog Hop! This was my first Blog Hop ever and it was fun. Your pages are great, thank you for sharing! My PL was 3 albums last year but it was my first year doing PL and also my first attempt at a photo-a-day and it grew very easily! I'm actually quite happy to have got so much documented, actually, I don't mind the 3 albums. I am shying away from flip-flaps for some reason...were they hard to find? Tricky to use? Tell us more! And most of all...HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

  4. Your album looks great, Lynn. Your grandson is adorable and I love that photo with his name and the balloon. You've done amazing keeping up with things. I feel the same as you about January. My schedule is only now going back to normal. Time to finally catch my breath.

  5. Wonderful first few weeks. I haven't even thought about how many albums this might end up being for the year.

    Thanks for joining the hop. I hope you'll join again next month :)
