Top 11 of 2011

In no particular order, here are my eleven favorite projects of 2011:
I actually created this one from a sketch from the Crate Paper blog. I had a lot of fun with this one because I just loved working with those photos :)
A favorite memory :) Photo was from 2009, but I didn't scrap it til this year.
I love that photo, and that song by U2!
A little bit of a messier style for me with the misting, but I still managed to keep it clean and simple with the grid design. And it talks about the relationship Erin and Evan have right now :)

This one was a complete learning experience with the misting and alphabet letter masking, but also fun to do!

Loved the flower on this one. My favorite season scrapbooked :)

Really, really loved how fun this one was to do. Love the colors, the little bit of misting and just taking a chance for me on using the Doodlebug product. Not typically my style :)
I want to do more layouts like this. About what life was like right at that moment :)
An actual 2pager and really important moment for Evan :)
Really liked going back and scrapbooking these older photos :)
And the mini album I made out of the photos as well is on my all time favorite projects list :)
It was a lot harder than I thought it would be to pick favorites. Plus, one of my fave projects of the year will be in the June issue of Scrapbooks Etc..., so I can't even post it!
Also love seeing how much I experimented this year with something new - mists. And how I used different sizes. There were other projects, such as my recipe book, laundry room sign, decorated chipboard house, and even cards that showed me that I am branching out from just layouts!
Really looking forward to seeing where 2012 takes me :)
