It seems to be somewhat of a trend for scrappy bloggers to end the year with a review of their favorite layouts created over the year. I've decided to join in. Looking back over the work I've done over the course of the previous twelve months, it's been neat to see how my style has evolved and improved. It's also interesting to see how I seem to work more easily with certain manufacturers over others. I am so thankful to My Scrapbook Nook. Because of the wonderful kits that Leah puts together month after month I have been able to thoroughly enjoy this hobby, having the very latest in scrappy goodies make their way to my mailbox every month. It's been almost a year since I started this blog, and I thank each of you for joining me on this journey checking in from time to time, and especially for the kind words of support and encouragement you take the time to willingly offer me. It has been a fun 11 months together, and I look forward to many more stories, layouts, and heart to hearts with you. Last month I began following a tradition (started by Stephanie Howell) called Blog Your Heart. It is scheduled for the last day of every month. A time to just get out what's been on my heart. I will defer that post to another day this month in lieu of the fact that this post will be photo heavy, and therefore a little longer than usual. With that here are the layouts, in no particular order, that I've chosen as my favorites of the year. I hope you enjoy the look back as much as I did.
Because I'm also a card maker at heart, I just had to choose some card faves to share also. I'll do that tomorrow.
Happy last day of 2011 friends. Thank you so much for stopping by my little corner of the world today.
