Twelve in 2012

As 2012 comes to a close, I just wanted to share my top twelve favorite layouts that I created this year :)
1. That photo is one of my all time favorites!
2. Me embracing turning 40 :)
3. Documenting Erin calling dandelions "my wishes". And finally getting the Instagram app on my camera!
4. Documenting the music I love right now! We went to some amazing concerts in 2012. Radiohead, Jane's Addiction and the Black Keys!
5. A favorite all time memory! In the general admission line all day to see U2 and being so close. So hot that day! Facebook status about it on s little tag behind my photo with a mini clothespin to pull it out.
6. Showing how technology has changed so much! And what a difference it makes being able to talk to Mike at night on Skype while he is away. How good it is for all of us!
7. A quote and friends I love :)


8. Brings back such memories!
9. One of my favorite hobbies.

10. Fun with friends and doors :)
11. Becoming more comfortable scrapbooking me! Sharing photos of me and not being overly critical of myself. Thanks to Scrapbooking From the Inside Out. Such a great design team to help me grow as a scrapbooker. In fact, several of these layouts were a result of kits by Rachel :)
12. Another huge change in my life. Having both of my babies in school full time. Although they have had so many sick days and days off this year, I have still had at least one home with me one day a week ;)

So there you have it!
Are you doing a recap of your favorite layouts from this past year?
Would love to see it if you are!
Happy New Year!!! See you in 2013!

  1. It's so much fun to see your pages in review, Mary Jo. I love your work. You've pushed me to think beyond the "daily" stuff and to scrap my feelings too. I didn't do a top 12 layout post, but we do plan on going through the 2012 albums tonight as part of our New Year's Eve celebration. :) Happy New Year!

  3. Ah, love to see your favorite pages of the year. Such a great idea. I need to learn from your "Embracing 40" layout as I have exactly 20 days left of my thirties. Hard for me to think that approx half of my life is over considering I have so much that still needs to happen - like Mr. Right and kids! I still have hope though. :) Happy New Year!
