Texas State Fair 2007 - Not-My-Typical-12x12 Week

Welcome to the final day of Not-My-Typical-12x12 Week here at Daily Life - Bits & Pieces. Each day this week I've shared a layout that is not my traditional 12x12 layout. These layouts have been various sizes and formats.

One thing to keep in mind when using a divided page protector is what you will include on the opposite side. For the back of the page protector that I used in yesterday's layout, I chose photos and memorabilia from our day at the Texas State Fair in 2007.

Journaling reads: A nice Saturday at the fair with friends. We watched the dog show, toured the movie costume exhibit at the Women's Museum, ate chocolate-covered strawberries, and rode the Texas Star.

The journaling on the dog bone at the bottom left reads: We caught the dog show just as we entered the fairgrounds - amazing what dogs can be trained to do.

Thanks so much for joining me for Not-My-Typical-12x12 Week. If you found some inspiration to create different size layouts, use divided page protectors, or add cross-referencing to your albums, please let me know in the comments.

Yes, I've really enjoyed the week, too. Great to see such a variety of pic-presenting-ways that don't use standard 12x12!
