((decided to post a few of my scrapbook favorites from the year today - and save favorite photos tomorrow.))
i managed to scrap a lot in 2010. no doubt due largely to my participation at Studio Calico... ;) I love that I scrapped not just magazine assignments, but also lots of layouts FOR ME.
and so, these were my top 10 (i tried to narrow my list down to 10, but couldnt get past 12) favorite pages created (or published!) during the past year...
... this one was scrapped last winter while i was still pregnant, and nostalgic over Evan's newborn photos.
...(created for the january 2010 issue of Creating Keepsakes) - evan STILL says "haboom" to mean yes. only in the past month or so has he actually started saying the word "yes" in addition to haboom. so 2010 continued to be the year of the haboom for us. :)
...one of my random-hold-the-camera-out-and-take-it yet still favorite shots of evan and i. i'm glad that i found time to find a scrapbook page home for this photo.
...i love how the pastels look on the white, and i also love the little story that i recorded! - this page took all of about 20 minutes to do, with scraps that were leftover on my desk from a Studio Calico kit, a few ultrasound pics, and my trusty circle punch. ;)
...These photostrip frames were one of my favorite kit products from the past year. I love how they inspired this layout for evan's every month book.
...Scrapped when I still didn't know Noah's gender (and he could have been a she) - and even though i secretly had a strong feeling he was a HE - I was still taking every oportunity that I could get to work some pink and flowers onto my pages. ;)
...Could be my favorite of the year?! the 1st reason that i love this page SO much: Noah's little animal print kimono tee (it will forever bring back memories of his first few newborn weeks at home)... the 2nd: these are simple snapshots that i love with a color scheme to match. :)
...i just love this photo. (my amazing sister kristi took it in our front yard) i have another version of it printed as a glossy canvas in our home, and i smile every time i walk by the nook where it's propped up.
...one of the best days of the year translated to a scrapbook page.
...this page was a favorite AGAIN bc of that cute kimono tee (this time in the next size up), and also because of the adorable alphabet soup playing cards. i love that little giraffe!
...this KI Memories calendar page paper inspired me to print a mini pic from each day of noah's first month - & i love that i was able to capture his entire newborn phase on a single page.
...one of my most recent pages with this kit. :)
happy, HAPPY new year everyone!
i can only hope that 2011 proves to be even more creative & crafty than '10 was.
