As this year draws to a close, I am continuing a tradition by sharing my top ten favorite layouts of the year. I love going through all of them, reading my journaling again, and recalling what was happening in my head and heart. In some ways, it was hard to choose but, I found a few. :)
And this is all part of a fun blog hop too! So make sure to continue to the bottom to see who to hop along to next.
|I have so many layouts the document a certain stage in my Chicago life. This one uses a favorite photo I took from the ferris wheel at Navy Pier. I loved using sparkly elements because this city has certainly dazzled me.|
|There are several things I love this layout. What mostly captures me is the composition and the photo. The story too, for sure, but everything else makes me smile.|
|Not only do I appreciate the journaling I did but I like HOW I did it. Those word strips were fun to incorporate and, from a design standpoint, this one is definitely a fave.|
|Oh this one. Definitely a favorite when it comes to the photo I chose and the journaling content. I also had a lot of fun with the composition and overall design of this layout.|
|This is a favorite simply for the content. I made some choices that were difficult to do but were so healing. I'm so glad that I have it documented with art now. And you have to admit, that is some pretty blue paper!|
|This is another one where I really love the photo I chose to represent the journaling. I can't stop looking at it and taking it all in. I can still feel the emotion radiating from it and feel the freedom of letting it out.|
And a bonus one (or two):
|And another Chicago layout. I loved using product from my stash and those maps! This one hangs on my wall and I love rereading it and looking at it every day.|
And there you have it! My top ten (with a bonus).
Now check out the other lovelies that are participating. SO much talent and inspiration!!! Have fun hopping along!
