Project Life: week 13

So week 13 is the week I fall behind!
I actually finished most of the layout in a day or two. Then I realized that I forgot to print out the journaling for the week, and the photo of my dead tree, and the one of Buddy (Still forgotten. Great job, Sue!) Usually this would make me crazy and feel the need to run to Costco immediately for prints. This week, I decided that these things could wait another week until I was ready to get more photos. Shocking, I know.
So here is the entire spread:
Close-up of the left side. 
I got to meet a friend IRL that I didn't think I'd ever get to meet! Ranks as one of the coolest moments of our trip to Cinci. Jillibean Soup sticker, HS ghost heart & journaling spot.
My poor Magnolia tree. I look forward to it's blooms every spring, and this year they were magnificent. Until Mother Nature decided to send us back into the freeze, that is. The petals turned brown and curled up overnight. So sad. I tried to make this look like one block. Bazzill tape, Kaiser tiny letters.
First insert! A detailing of Emma's first soccer game of the high school season.
And on the backside, a detailing of Evan's tournament in Cinci. Also seen: A save the ta-tas tag that was on a t-shirt I purchased while there. Had to save it.
And insert number 2: I made an 8x8 photo collage. In the blank spot, I used a journaling card from Erica, American Crafts thickers, and Sharpie poster paint marker. I wanted white, but my pen was all dried out. Black it is!
On the backside, I had nothing. Then yesterday, I had a playdate with Nicole and her daughter gave me this sweetest little drawing. Already 8x8, as if she knew I had a blank spot in my book. I haven't gotten any drawings from a child in a really long time, and I love love it! Not the right week, but I'm going to make a note on the page protector.
The right side
Close-up of another 2 that I made to look like 1. My current food obsessions. This is also the week I learned that I can't put letter stickers on straight! AC Thickers & LillyBee Design stickers. Amy Tan paper.
Cool shot of Ev in goal, with his team creating a wall. I love how he is peeking out. I sewed a ghost arrow pointing to him. MM rub-ons.
The only photo I have of my BFF Heather. Terrible photo made better by turning it into B&W. You can't even tell how hard she is pinching me! Ormulu flair.
And a terrible car photo of us leaving town. Terrible, but awesome.
Week 13, finito!

Week 13 turned out great. I can't believe I made the cut!

I'm still working on Week 4 of my PL book, but I have plans for that photo of the two of us when I get to Week 13.

Awesome spread Sue! That Dutch Baby is a monster! And how cute that you slipped Morgan's drawing in. :) I'll have to show her that you put it in your scrapbook - she'll love that!
