Well, this is fun! I’m delighted to be joining a group of like-minded scrapbook enthusiasts to review our ten favorite layouts from the year. And if you read through to the end of the post, you’ll find details about my giveaway (open until January 3 at midnight CST).
Here is the list of participants so you can hop along and see them all:
Janice Daquila-Pardo > That’s me!
Mary Ann Jenkins
And now here are my top ten favorite pages from the past year (in chronological order):
I love this one because even with all those beautiful patterns and colors, our girl’s eyes still steal the show. She’s a stunner.
This one was fun to make because I was able to work in so many references to Disney, including those Mickey ears in the top left.
Hector was a turtle we found strolling down our busy street and scooped up so we could take him to a nearby pond. I like the simplicity of this page, allowing the story to be told by the patterned papers.
This page makes me happy because of the cute picture of my hubby and how the patterns and embellishment clusters work together. It’s a little bit masculine (but not too much!).
Again, I think I like this page because of the interplay of patterns and colors, not to mention that super sweet photo of my cousins on Easter morning 1968.
I love using bright colors and modern patterns with vintage photos…like this one of my mom on her 1965 honeymoon.
This photo of me is one I’ve had printed for ages, awaiting the right inspiration to hit. Once I found the unusual and beautiful color combination in this collection, it came together easily. I’m so pleased to have it recorded.
If you’ve read this far, you may have noticed that I love to mix lots of patterns on my pages. That, and the fact that I fit four decent sized photos on it, makes me quite happy with this one.
This page turned out just as I imagined it, which is such a joy for a crafter, isnt’ it? It was so much fun to die cut all those leaves and arrange them.
This photo of my dad reading a Christmas story to us is of such a wonderful memory that I had to do something special to record it. I love how all these bits of patterned paper came together to create my diamond focal point.
And that’s my year in review
