Top 10 (make that 20) Favorite Layouts of 2012

I started out to do a Top Ten Favorite Layouts of 2012. The thing is, I couldn't limit my selection to just 10. (I really liked most of the pages I made last year) And then, I kept changing my mind .....

So, here are my Top TWENTY favorite layouts of 2012, as of five minutes ago. (It may totally change the next time I think about it)




Thanks for looking! Have a great day!

Creative Scrappers Sketch #243


This layout was so much fun to create! I started with Sketch #243 from Creative Scrappers and then did some experimenting with khaki colored glimmer mist, inks and stamps, and gesso. Here's the result:



The fabulous photo is by Amy Runge of Lucid Photography; those handsome boys are two of my grandsons with their new Golden Retriever puppies. 

Thanks for stopping by!

Final layouts of 2012

Work, holidays, a bout with the creeping crud .... all have taken their toll on my scrapbooking and blogging time in the past few weeks. But I did manage to get a few layouts done. Here are the final layouts of 2012:

I love working with  Shawn's sketches as part of the Nuts About Sketches design team! It's no accident that many of my favorite layouts start with her sketches, like this one. It was perfect for showing off the photos of Anna dancing with Goofy and ... well, acting "goofy" .... at Disneyland!


The Kaisercraft  Twig & Berry collection is fabulous! Here's a quick and simple layout using the collection's paper and stickers:

Another Nuts About Sketches design, also featuring Twig & Berry:


Two more Nuts About Sketches designs, featuring Miss Anna meeting new friends at Disneyland:


Another Twig & Berry layout, with photos from a Christmas about 30 years ago:

Another Nuts About Sketches design, with the totally fun December kit from Citrus Twist. My oldest daughter and her family were involved in a fierce game of Monopoly after our pre-Christmas dinner:


Another layout with the December kit. Not sure who's having fun with grandson Cameron's new Crayola airbrush system -- Cam or his dad:


And the last one of 2012, featuring a Nuts About Sketches sketch and photos of grandson Ethan and his dog, Zeus. The fabulous photos were taken by Amy Runge of Lucid Photography in Rochester, MN:


Thanks for looking. Have a wonderful 2013!
