Favorite Layouts of 2012

So...I love this time of year when all my fellow scrappers are sharing their favorite layouts from the past 12 months.  So much fun to browse around and be inspired.

It has been a good scrappy year for me.  I have had many wonderful opportunities and have made really great friends in this industry.

This year brought bittersweet sadness as two of my long-time committments ended. Both The Nook and Scrapstreet.com closed their doors.  I admit that I really miss working with the kits...it motivated me to scrap creatively and expand depending on the product.  I also ended a year of being an ongoing guest designer for Bella Blvd, a team I hope to revisit again someday!

Along with good-byes, I got to say a fabulous hello, joining the Lily Bee team.  Sometimes a door is opened when you least expect it.  I will continue with Teresa Collins and Webster's Pages...they are my family.  I scrap joyfully for these companies and it is a gift to stand alongside many of my scrappy idols.

I do hope to scrap more frequently this upcoming year.  To not be frozen by so many photos and just go...

For now, here are my top layouts in no particular order.

I just love these photos as they capture my daughter's love of life...I also dig the white space and sunrays.

This one also shows really fun photos and I wanted the rest of the layout to match that feel.  It just fell into place.

This one just means so much...one of those mommy stories I have to tell.

I picked this one because it really expressed me at my most creative...that web was made from Lily Bee stamps.

Again, this one just sums up how blessed I feel.  It is about the subject as much as it is the design.

I love this page including the cluster of goodies.  This is one of my more reliable page formats.

Sweet photos, a winking Santa, that green background.  Love how this is structured with lots of movement still.

This speaks for itself.  I adore this guy.

Again, creativity that was initiated from an assignment.  I really dig all the bookplates.

Here is that familiar page format, but with the ovals...it feels fresh.

I like the big elements on this one and the horizontal feel.

I just shared this one, but I really like it.  Free, layered, white space...meaningful.

I feel lucky to have a hobby where I can express myself.  There were many pages I didn't really care for this year...but at the end of the day, they are all favorites.  Because they are the moments of my life.  Recorded, documented, cherished.

Happy New Year!
