Top Ten for 2012

This has become such a fun tradition to go through all my projects and pick out my favorites. I'm joining a bunch of other ladies this year who are also sharing their top faves. To see everyone else and their picks, click here. There are some prizes along the way so don't miss out.

Here we go...

This one is easily a fave. Created for Scrapbooking from the Inside Out.

Paper strips, paper flower and Lily Bee! Created for March 2012 Guest Design at Lily Bee Design.

I had a sketch for this in my head. Totally out of my typical style.

Fell in love with this collection by MME and it fit perfectly to document my old cat.

Girl Land by Websters Pages is SWOON WORTHY for sure.

Loved everything about this. The product but mostly the photos and what I was documenting.

I was so excited to see the OLW challenge blog come back. Jumped in right away and I love how this turned out. Another one that isn't completely my normal style. 

Yummy goodies and beautiful friends.

This was a layout I created after a day of rejuvenation. I love that we can use scrapbooking to journal about life.
Creative therapy IS a necessity! 

I didn't like this layout at first but I keep looking at it. It's just another one that is not my normal "sketch" but I love the interest those triangles bring. Goes perfect with the funky hat in the photo.

I'll be back in a couple of days with my top ten cards from 2012! In the meantime, thanks for swinging by and enjoy checking out all the other blog on our little Top Ten of 2012 Blog Hop!!!
