It's our hope that we will inspire you to capture memories and record them.

I am happy to report that I have been more or less current with my weekly layouts. To me, the beauty of this whole project is the IMMEDIACY of the memory keeping. You can literally record a moment the moment after it happens, on a 3x4 journaling card if you choose.

My pages this week actually coincide with the monthly topic so I thought I would discuss using the different page protectors. Last year I bought the big variety pack with 6 different page designs, but I found too many designs made planning things too complicated (another way to keep up with PL is to keep things as simple as possible!). This year I have been using mostly design A protectors, but got a little bored this week so switched it up a bit.

This side uses a design D protector, which is obviously great for vertical photos. And I tried something new this week - using old photos in a "current" album - and love it!

May 12th was Mother's Day, so to honor our moms I made a layout with baby pics of the hubs and I with our mommies. This page makes me smile. The photos of Joe and his mom are scanned and printed copies while my photos are the actual originals, so I used photo corners to adhere them to the page instead of using adhesive directly onto the pic. I am definitely going to do this same thing for Father's Day.

Using design F page protectors is great for adding lots of small, i.e. Instagram/iPhone photos. I tried to do a random mix of square and rectangular photos as well as digital and physical stamping. Part of me is tempted to go all digital next year, but I love playing (and buying) paper too much! I bought the Blush edition from Hobby Lobby and actually used it on this page. It may be my new favorite.

Hope your Project Life is going well and you are having fun with it. I look forward to seeing all our PL inspiration!

I love the little photos on your week card and the old photos look so cute and what a sweet idea you came up with. i also get bored sometimes with the same page protectors and also noticed to many choices can be a big pain.

Wow, your pages are fantastic. I love the black/white/grey with pops of subtle color. The Mother's Day page is so great! What a great idea and fabulous execution.
