I have seen a few posts with this Top 10 theme and decided to go back over my layouts for the year and see which were or still are my favourites. I also decided to count back over them and see how many pages I actually scrapped this year. The total 110. I would of thought more, hopefully I can do a lot more than that next year! Anyway onto my Top 10 (that I can show!)
One of the first layouts I did this year and possibly my most favourite layout is Mummy's Big Helper which was picked to be on the cover of Scrapbooking Memories Magazine.
I love joining in on all the challenges over at Scrapz and scrapping in a way that would not normally be my style. This page was influenced by one a page by Belinda Venables when she was on the Scrapz DT. I love how easy this was to come together and all the different fonts in the title.
Last year was Zane's last year of preschool and they have a graduation ceremony. His hat was back to front and he was playing with the tassle, so cute! I love the colours, and the cute handmade embellishments on this from A Lil Something
Zane started school this year, so there were lots of photos taken and a few pages scrapped. I love this one, he looks so small and neat and tidy - something that's never happened since. The title is based on the letter we received from the principal, about them starting their Adventure in Schooling:
This year I have been loving handmade embellishments. I have had to make a new storage system just to house them. One of the first I started with is Purple Pumpkin . This layout is a recent one from one of their monthly challenges based on a sketch. I love the brights in this:
I have so many older photos still waiting to be scrapped and I discover more as I look back at photos that may not be perfect but bring back lots of memories. This cute one is of Lily playing Peek-A-Boo. I love the Prima bling, flowers and doilies on this.
I love trying new techniques and mixing up my style. This was my attempt at a grungy boy layout and I love how it turned out. I even used Rub-ons! This photo was from a family photography shoot we had in July, this one actually captured Zane and his Cheeky Grin perfectly. I have edited the photo from the original.
I love to be behind the camera, never in front! I don't have many photos of just me for all the usual reasons. At Halloween the kids wanted me to dress up like them so I thought I would take a pic of me. So it is in my Top 10 because it's me and I am pretty happy with the photo and love the colours.
This is from another Scrapz challenge. I love that challenges force you to scrap what you normally wouldn't it. True Blood is my current favourite show - eventhough now I have to wait till June next year for the new season. It also gave me the chance to try a new technique with some paint. The journalling is the theme song.
And I must finish off with a Christmas layout!! This one was recently published in Scrapbooking Memories and I just love, love the photo of Miss Lily and I love my cluster of embellishments including the gorgeous chipboard swirls from 2Crafty
Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and wishing you all the best for a fabulous 2012!!
See you in the new year!
