12 of 2012

These are 12 of my favorite LOs from the last year.
Thanks for popping by to peek
Have a safe, warm and Happy New Year!!
Another do-over LO.
The colors, blocking all fit the photo SO MUCH better.
Love this toothless grin and colour combo  :)
Love all the old bits of odds & ends that got used up here.
Sincerely & truly - I am at my happiest snuggling with these two.
Love how I embraced a bit of my 'messy inner scrapper'.
Lots of layers and embellishment. And pink!!
And a picture of me that isn't totally hideous (for a change).
Bright & happy colors and sweet pics of my baby at 4.
No further words needed. :)
Misting AND flowers??
I loved how this LO of our long ago honeymoon photo turned out.
I loved the way this hot air balloon embellie worked  with my title about how much I looked forward to Friday lunch dates with my Little Man at school when I did hot lunch last year. I never got a pic of either of us, so I took a pic of the spot where we both used to perch as we ate.
A much needed do-over LO about my life as a SAHM. ALL of the journalling is now contained in a pocket behind the photo (and not messing up my LO like before).
Pictures taken by Little Man with his Nintendo DS.
I explored the sunburst paper piecing technique on this one and LOVED it!
This is my pretty baby sis who turned 18 last year.
I stole this photo form her FB account :)

'Tis the Season.. be busy.
First, please let me apologise for my long absence. I never anticipated becoming a hat maker over the last few months but that is what happened. EEK. AND  I even made a few dollars to boot :)
That left very little time or desire for scrapbooking, however, and then when it came time to prepare my November assignments, I was BLOCKED.
Asthe old addage goes, if you don't use it, you really do LOSE it. I plan on making some scrapping time this holiday, to get myself back n the swing of it.
In the meantime, I have a few projects to share with teh November Hip 2-b Square kit + Add-ons.
I love that there were fun little bits of unexpected color in this kit, it was loads of fun to play with.

Out of neccesity, I made these tags and grabbed the scraps I had hanging around from this kit.
It was about a 5 minute process, including the cutting!

Thanks for stopping by!
Have a great Christmas Eve - EVE!!
