Each year I like to do a "year in review" and choose my favorite layouts over the past year that I've created. It's fun to look back and see how you've grown or changed in scrapbooking. I think I'll just stick to layouts today...maybe I'll post 11 of my favorite cards next!
1. This first one was done for Pink Paislee... I had fun mixing and matching colors and papers. I'm trying to get better at adding more color and trying new placement for things!
Pink Paislee layout from this fall when we went to the pumpkin patch. I love the phase right now of using punches. It really allows you to add lot of pattern to your pages by adding little punched bits and pieces.
Jenni Bowlin products! I really had fun with the design here.
5. This one was Pinterest inspired, made for a guest post for Pebbles. I painted the limbs and added punched circles. Making your own backgrounds is really addicting with mists, paints and stamps...so many possibilities!
6. "Chasing the Chicks" was done for another guest post for Hip 2 Be Square Scrapbooking. This was a visit back home and we stopped at a tourist attraction called "Old MacDonald's Farm". Kati chased the chickens all over the place! Who knew chicken pictures would be so fun to scrap! HA
Scrapbooking Girls E-book by Ella Publishing. (You can still purchase this - link is in my side bar!) I gave Taylor my camera and asked her to take photos of her favorite things, like her favorite hobby, music, food, etc. We had the BEST time together finding her favorites around the house and she loved using my camera and getting a photography lesson! It was a neat way to spend time together and create a page to remember her favorites at this age. This page also reminds me that I need to get better at using MORE photos on a page!
Pink Paislee called Snow Day and love these pictures of my 3 making snowmen together. It was one of those layouts that fell together very fast! Love when that happens!

Scrapbooking is like creating a journal, except we are adding color and photos to our journal. I've learned lots this year about creating, design, and of course stamping from my good friends at Papertrey Ink. I've learned more about the things people like to see and how design pleases the eye. Creating makes me so happy, and I can't wait to see what this year will bring for me! Thanks for reading and stopping by! I really appreciate having so many friends who understand the scrapbooking passion. Here's to a great 2012. xo,
