My Top 12 of 2012

Happy New Year's Eve, friends!  I can't believe it's almost 2013...I'm still trying to catch up from 2010...haha!  I think I blinked and a few years just fast-forwarded on by...sigh.  I've never compiled a yearly list of my favorite layouts before, but I wanted to do it this year.  It was a lot harder than I thought it would be...only choosing 12 of my favorite pages!  I was originally only going to choose ten, but I went with 12 instead.  Here they are in no particular order:

1.  This page was created for a ScrapFIT Workout to use misting on your page.  Not only do I love how my stitched stars turned out, but I just adore these pictures of my chunk...haha!

2.  This page was created for Challenge Me use the word "new" in your title.  I love the bright colors, the misting, the paint smudges, and I really love how I was able to recreate the chevrons in Reese's swimsuit.

3.  This was another ScrapFIT workout, but for the Warm-Up.  The rules were to create some sort of cluster on your page.  I love how this one turned I was able to use mist & paint again :)

4.  This is one of my favorites...not only because of the gorgeous photo of Reese, but because I won Honorable Mention at My Mind's Eye with it!  I couldn't believe it!

5.  Ahhh...some Echo Park goodness!  This was created for a challenge at My Scraps & More...I love the paint drips and the color I had just started using washi tape!  A definite fave of mine now!

6.  This page was created with some MME Lime Twist for My Scraps and More several months ago.  I love the simplicity of this page, and the photos are just so cute.  I love the blues in the photos and how they are the first thing you see.

7.  Another Challenge Me Happy page...scrapping about yourself 10 years ago.  I was teaching high school and I was the JV Cheerleading Coach.  I like the layout of this one and how I incorporated the school colors into it.  It brings back lots of sentimental memories.

8.  Another My Scraps layout...this one featured some Fancy Pants.  It was for the DT monthly reveal.  I love these photos, and of course, the paint drips & smudges.

9.  This page was for Artful Delight...lots of MME in this kit.  I just love the design of this one...the little clothespins, the matching paint drips, and the wooden hearts.  Plus...the adorable photos of my little Pippy :)

10.  This is a more recent page I created for My's based on a Kristine Davidson sketch.  It was featured on the My Scraps Sketches blog a few weeks ago.  I love the Echo Park papers and all the fun bits & pieces at the bottom.

11.  Another My Scraps page...this one features the January kit, and it's based on an exclusive Jenny Evans sketch included in the kit.  I just love the picture of me and Marshall...all the strips, and it features one of my very first Cameo cuts!

12.  Ahhhh...washi love!  This was for use washi tape.  That's all I used :)  Lots of strips.  I added some stamps and buttons.  Love the bright colors all mixed together and the sweet pictures.

I can't believe I narrowed my favorites down...there were so many more that I just love!  It's fun to go back and see what you've accomplished over the past 12 months.  I created just over 200 layouts.  I served on the Artful Delight DT, and I made the My Scraps & More DT.  I continued to serve as the ScrapFIT Warm-Up Coach, and I continued on the Challenge Me Happy DT.  I got a blog makeover and got my Cameo.  I won a few challenges & blog hop prizes.  I also made lots of new scrappy friends and became better friends with others.  It's been a great year scrappy-wise, and I can't wait to see what 2013 has in store!
