2011 was a good year for me scrap-wise. I was very blessed and fulfilled several of my goals: I made the My Scrapbook Nook DT, I also made the Bella Blvd. DT, and I finally, after countless attempts, got a layout picked up for publishing with Scrapbook Trends. So overall, I count it as a very successful year. Like I said, I've been very blessed and I don't take that for granted.
So without further adieu, here are my favorite layouts from 2011, from the ones that I can show for now. ;)
and one of the several that we had this past winter, I
like the title on top of the tags, and the
snowflakes on the side.
I LOVE these pics of Caroline and her
Baby Alive doll Kayla, especially since she's
grown out of the doll phase for now.
And I really love the vintage feel to
the whole page.
to be a "boy" page, I was still able to add pearls,
eyelet lace, and flowers. I like the combination
of girly embellishments meet a boy page.
bald he is! This is EXACTLY why I scrap. I
also love the string, the pinwheels, and of course
the October Afternoon paper on this one. PLAID!
My Little Shoebox, working with a sketch provided
to us by Aphra, and I still really like the
way it turned out.
only because I like the design but because these are
NOT our everyday moments anymore.
These dress-up days that used to happen every
single day now only happen now on Saturdays.
on this one. I love that I captured her mood.
I also really liked this line from Pebbles--all
those different shades of pink and peach.
that I'm glad I captured. I was channeling
my inner Maggie Holmes on this one and I'm
happy with the way it turned out. I had fun
creating the masked/misted portion of the title.
I LOVE the colors and distressed
feel of this Simple Stories line. It worked so
perfectly with our pics from the lake.
I'm so glad I re-scrapped this pic in order to get
the journaling right this time. The picture
says it all, and I wanted to reflect on it more
the 2nd time around. Also, I'm really liking
layered/staggered paper look right now,
and of course doilies too.
