A couple of blog posts ago I mentioned how I thought about switching back to a 12x12 format for 2017 because I couldn't find and album that was perfect for Project Life®. Through the month of January I completed each week in a 12x12 format, but didn't commit myself to that size by actually buying an album. I think I was hoping that a good option would pop up and I could go back to my beloved 6x8 size. Well once we hit February, I took the plunge and ordered a couple of white 12x12 albums. I told myself I am overthinking this whole situation and need to just get on with it.

And then the worst thing happened!!!

I was watching Ali's video for the Numbers Story Kit™ and she mentioned that she would be manufacturing some 6x8 albums later in the year!!! I know I haven't seem then yet, but I love Ali's Style so much that I know I am going to love them. So the questions remains... 6x8 or 12x12??

While I am figuring that out, let me show you my spread for week 5:

For this week I had a 12x12 page protector on the rleft and I added a Design A pocket page on the right. I really enjoy mixing thing up just a bit in this album. Plus having a full page protector helps out on weeks that I didn't take as many photos.

Whenever I am working with a full page protector, I use that opportunity to either highlight a favorite story or photo. This week all the stories I had to tell were worthy of being highlighted.

I decided to enlarge a photo of the boys betting on the Super Bowl game. I added a quick title, a couple of embellishment, and jotted down some quick notes. Easy peasy!

I got held up for just a minute while working on the pocket side of my spread. I knew what photos and cards I was going to use, I just didn't know what pockets I wanted to put them in. I tried a couple of different options, and settled on this arrangement. Super happy with how it turned out.

I maybe still be struggling with what size I am going to stick with this year, and I know I am seriously over thinking that situation. Does it really matter what size I use?? I'll eventually figure it out.. haha
