2011: Year in Review

I love to do the Year in Review on the last day of the year...I also love to see other bloggers post theirs too. 

January


I'm really not a purple girl but surprisingly, I found quite a number of purple projects...probably because I bought the pack of purple prima blooms.

Question for you Prima Bloom fans...what is the best adhesive to use for them??

My Girl


This girl really doesn't like getting her picture taken...sigh...so I adore this one that the boy snapped.  Rainbows and Sassafras...how can anyone resist the colors?  

February


I struggle with masculine cards but love how this grungy one turned out...the sentiment is by Skipping Stones Design.  LOVED being on that design team...

Why yes, I do love Sassafras...although I'm sad that they are taking their company in a new direction...I'm happy for them to do what they love...design...how coolio is that? 



March


I adore shaped cards....you'll probably notice that a majority of my cards start of with a PTI kraft base...

April

Stamped images by The Craft's Meow...I feel so fortunate to be part of the design team.  This card is one that makes me smile because I gave it to my Momma and she has it proudly displayed in her kitchen:)

May


Stamps by Paper Smooches and the sentiment is by EAD Designs Co-Branding Paper Smooches...EAD Designs, what can I say?  I adore my EAD Designs family:)

June


Amy Butler, SRM and The Craft's Meow...this card makes me smile...those that know me know that I love to combine patterns...add the stitching and it totally makes me happy.

July


Back again with a shaped card...that fun snail is by EAD Designs.

My scrapbooking was definitely spotty during the year...I always seemed to rely on my boys photog skillz:)


Huge believer of karma...I believe that is what brought us together...I can't imagine life without Darin.

August


I do so enjoy the 'stache rage...I just picked up a bunch of Hambly 'stache papers and overlays!  Stamped images by The Craft's Meow!

September


coffee...I love my coffee.

Yup, that's me on the right:)


This is probably 1 of about 5 pics of me when I was younger...it happens when you're the youngest of 3....grrrr  


October


A little canvas that I put together...it sits in my new crafting room:)

November


EAD Designs and Paper Smooches again...

Cupcake-licious


Photo compliments of the boy.


December


I love working with tags and non-traditional shaped cards...

There you have it...some craftiness from 2011....Don't know if I'll be posting much over the next couple of days....yeah, yeah, yeah...I'll probably be back:)
