Project Life Week 5

I seriously feel like I got tricked out of a weekend.  I was so busy…  But, I managed to get my PL Week 5 done, thankfully.  I had to do part of it late Saturday night and the rest between church and Super Bowl on Sunday.  *whew*
Before I get to Week 5, I want to show you a quick revision to something I did last week.  Remember I mentioned that I like to include news stories, so last week I included the passing of Joe Paterno?  Well, during the week, I came across some cute digital journal cards by Plucky Momo that are perfect for this, so I changed my news story:
Here’s the whole collection – go check out all of the cool kits HERE:
{By the way, Emilie at Plucky Momo gives away freebies every single Friday that go hand-in-hand with your PL album!  Just cuz she’s super nice!}
On to Week 5:
Since I used a black and white title card this week, I used multi-colored stickers for the date.  And since February is the month of love, I used a little heart clip 🙂
I made myself get in front of the camera a few times this week.  I’m not a fan.  But I promised myself that I would take at least one self-portrait each month, and these turned out good enough I suppose….
I didn’t take a picture on February 1st, but I did kick off a Valentine’s Day blog hop, so I used the button from my blog as my picture that day.  Also this week, I used a 4×6 journaling card to document my Saturday because it was so crazy.  It included a hair cut and color, so…another self-portrait in the book!  (Done with that goal for February – nothing like killing two birds with one stone!)
I used an insert this week as well.  I cut a 12×12 page protector in half – it originally had room on each side for 4 – 6×6 images.  I am using half of this page protector to include a note from my daughter and 3 images from my Scavenger Hunt Sunday challenge.
I was asked to do a tutorial on how I do my journal cards since I use Avery labels, but honestly, I ran out of time.  So, I PROMISE I will do that for you next week.  I’ll even share my template with you so you don’t have to make your own…cuz I love ya!
By the way, we still have our “Show Some Love” Valentine’s Blog Hop going on all the way to Valentine’s Day!  Today, head over to visit Kimbery at The Brown Eyes Have It!
Tomorrow, come back here to One Tough Mother.  I’ll be “Showing Some Love” and hosting my usual {Not So Tough} Tuesday’s linky party!  WOOT WOOT!  🙂
