End of 2010

I can't believe 2010 is over already. Lots happened in 2010 and I was DEFINITELY way more productive in the beginning of the year than at the end. I still created a lot including 168 layouts 49 cards an altered Frame a mini album about 4th of July and a nametag. WOOHOO!!!

Its soooooo hard picking favorites but my top 10 layouts that I created this past year are

Penguin hats - I LOVE using pattern paper so this layout is a major change for me, no pattern paper at all. But I love the simplicity of it!

Reflecting on Life - Webster's Pages makes beautiful paper but I was never able to actually cut into their papers and actually use them before this layout. I have learned though that when I work with Webster's pages I have to do LOTS of fussy cutting and distressing!

Beauty is Everywhere - I LOVED this photo as soon as I snapped it at Disney's Animal Kingdom. I love that the colors all go with the photo so wonderfully.

Time for Hugs - I love love love this line from Bella Blvd and had fun embellishing this layout.

Cherished family - I created this layout at my first crop which happened to be in Houston with the MSW ladies. What a great weekend that was!! The picture is from my cousin's wedding, its me, my mom, aunt and her daughters.

One last pic - Talking about the ladies from MSW, this was the last photo that was taken that weekend while we were waiting for the car to pick us up for the airport, Very SAD. Plus I had soooooooo wanted to play with this Sassafras line.

Everything Grows - This layout got so whimsical and fun definitely opposite of what I generally do but it turned out sooooo super cute!!!

Sisters - This was a spontaneous picture of my mom and aunt together and I just wanted to showcase it. Its also so much fun using Glimmer Mist!!

Everyday Road Signs - I was so thrilled how this layout turned out especially since I had wanted to work with these pictures before and couldn't figure out what to do with them.

My Sweet Baby Girl - Dad took this adorable photo of my oldest, and I just had fun creating this girly layout, it was also one of the last things I created this year.

The one thing I notice when looking at all these layouts is how they are all soo soooo different and I love that, plus I love using Glimmer Mist!! It was soooo hard narrowing down the list to only 10 I could have EASILY picked 10 more with ease!!
