Top Ten of 2012 Blog Hop - Plus a Giveaway!!!

Hello blogging friends! Happy Holidays to you all!! Be sure to check out my GIVEAWAY at the end.

This was really hard to narrow my favorites down to 10. I keep thinking of other layouts and projects I've done that should be on this list, lol. As you will see, even though I occasionally make cards, they are not among my favorites. I have almost all layouts here. Here are my Top Ten Projects of 2012 ...

10. I love this picture of my niece Natalie celebrating Mardi Gras in New Orleans. The paper is some old Rusty Pickle. I created this one with one of Karan Gerber's fabulous sketches for Sketchabilities.

9. This one I created for Little Yellow Bicycle using the lovely Once Upon a Christmas collection. Check out my other projects on my post here. I was really hard to pick which of these was my favorite.


8. The Paradise collection from Little Yellow Bicycle was one of my favorites of 2012. I created this one as a guest designer for Artful Delight. Please check out their scrapbook and card kits, Amazing!!!

7. This Gingerbread mini album was so much fun to make! Created for a Quick Quotes and Clear Scraps blog hop.

6. This is another Quick Quotes project made for a Helmar blog hop. You can see more of my candles on my full blog post here if interested... helmar-blog-hop.  This was an amazing Thanksgiving centerpiece!




5. This is yet another Quick Quotes project. It made the cover of Scrapstreet magazine last April. I just love this picture of my daughter and our foster dog.

4. This is another Sketchabilities layout created with the My Mind's Eye Sweet Caroline collection that I was lucky enough to win.

3. and this is the layout that won me those My Mind's Eye goodies! Another favorite collection of mine this past year, My Mind's Eye Be Amazing.

2. I love the paint drips and splashes on this layout, as if the mud was dripping right off this photo! This layout was created with another Artful Delight. kit.

1. and my favorite layout of 2012 which was also published in the last issue of Scrapstreet magazine....
This layout was also created with an Artful Delight. kit using the Summer Fresh Simple Stories collection. Another favorite collection of mine for 2012! I am linking this up at Sassy Scrappers and if I am lucky, it will win me a guest designer spot :)

  48. I so agree with your no. 1 choice. I love everything about it, the colours, the position of the embellies. etc. It doesn't surprise me that you were published in Scrapstreet. Your style is also similar to Liz Chidester, whose style I also adore. I try to copy you girls' layouts, but soemhow never pull it off. Hopefully by following your blog I get the hang of it!
