Just to be different . . . TOP 26 LAYOUTS OF 2012! ♥

I was going to post my favorite 10 layouts from the year.  Then I thought 20, because I posted 20 favorite layouts last year.  But then I started looking, and I liked way more than 20, and eliminating was difficult!  SO, to be different, I posted 26!  No significance to that number, and no particular order, here are 26 layouts I created this year!  I love them all, and I feel bad for the layouts I cut!  LOL!

There you go!  My favorite 26 layouts from 2012!

I want to give a very special shout out to two of my favorite places EVER:  Memorable Seasons and Crafty Steals!  I am on the Design Team at Memorable Seasons, and I have the privilege of getting amazing DT kits to create with!  Memorable Seasons is a wonderful community!  Come join us!  It's an AMAZING group of talented, friendly, and inspiring ladies!  I also need to say thanks to Stephanie at Crafty Steals who had me as a guest designer not once, but twice this year!  It's always an honor to create for Crafty Steals!

As always, thanks for stopping by!  Happy 2013!

Echo Park This & That Christmas!

Hi there!  My fabulous December DT kit at Memorable Seasons consists of Echo Park's This & That Christmas!  This collection is very much ME, because it's very traditional!  I love traditional when it comes to Christmas!  Here's what I've created so far!

I love this photo of my gorgeous girls in their Santa hats!  Sisters in Santa hats!  CUTE!!  What do you think of that photo mat?  I cut it with my Elegant Edges Cricut cartridge!  FUN!

This fabulous image was on the backside of one of the papers.  I love the tone on tone!  I decided to showcase it on a card!  Of course, I added a jingle bell!  Jingle bells make everything more fun, don't you think!?!

I love making Christmas cards, so I made another one!  The greetings piece is a piece of chipboard.  Love it!  Another jingle bell!  What can I say!?!

I love my December DT kit from Memorable Seasons!  What until you see what else I'll be showing you this week!  A layout that I just LOVE!  ♥

As always, thanks for stopping by!

October DT projects at Memorable Seasons!

This month at Memorable Seasons, my DT kit consisted of Prima Craftsman.  I was really drawn to the darker colors in this collection.  It's a very masculine collection, but it worked for me!

I just love how this collection worked on this marching band layout!  I am the queen of the self-portrait with my girls!  I love these photos!  I am a Marching Band Mom!

I also created a very simple card.  I have LOTS more that I created with this Prima Craftsman collection.  Stay tuned!  As always, thanks for stopping by!

Memorable Seasons Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Memorable Seasons blog hop!  

You should have begun the hop on the Memorable Seasons blog!  You continue through all of the blogs of the design team members.  You just might see a sneak peek of our new September kits, but you will also see what we created during our Members Challenge Us Crop!

Leave a comment on the MS blog for a chance to win a prize that will be drawn at the end of the hop.  The blog hop runs from Friday, August 31st through Monday, September 3rd.  You'll want to stop by the forum every day, but especially on September 4th, because we'll be revealing our September kits!  The winner of the blog hop will be revealed on the MS blog on September 4th too!  You should also know that on Tuesdays throughout September you will find challenges posted in our forum, and on Thursdays you will find the challenge listed on the blog.  Be sure to stop by and catch up on what's been going on!

So . . . . here's what I have for you today!  I love Memorable Seasons, and I love all of the wonderful friends that I've made on the site!  I'm kinda a rebel, so instead of posting just a sneak peek, I'm just posting a full look at a card that I made with my new September DT kit!  I want YOU to know that I am thankful for YOU!  Each and every one of YOU!  ♥

Here's a layout that I created for the VERY FUN Members Challenge Us Crop!  This layout was for Patricia's no peeking challenge!  We were to randomly pick three pieces of patterned paper and create a layout with whatever we picked!  My pick was fabulous!  I picked a sheet of My Mind's Eye, Jillibean Soup, and Hambly!  The colors all went together very well!

Be sure to leave a comment letting me know that you stopped by!  You never know, I just might send a little goodie to someone after this blog hop!  

Continue on with the HOP!  Enjoy!

Make sure that you also grab our blinkie to proudly display on your blog - you never know when we might stop by to check it out!
