Favourite 12 of 2012

Happy New Year!

This is the time of year when many scrappy bloggers take a look back at what they've created over the past twelve months and decided on a handful of their favorites.  It's an exercise I would recommend to anyone in the creative field.  It's a way to not only relieve, somewhat the memories behind the creations, but also a chance to see one's creative growth through the months.

Going through my folder I realized that I had completed over 266 projects, including layouts, mini albums, altered items, and cards.  I was surprised at the number, that's almost one project per day.

When trying to select my favorites, I found myself a little torn between choosing layouts that I loved, and layouts that others loved.  It was really hard to narrow it down to twelve that way.  So to make things easier, I decided to keep it simple, and stick only with the layouts that I really loved.  Some I chose because of the happy memories the layout invoked, and others I chose simply for the love of the design or the products used.

In no particular order here are my twelve personal favorites for 2012...

The Next Generation

Cutie Pie

Sweet Baby

With All My Heart

Little Man

Passport Photo

Coffee Date

Take Note

Love This Kid

Vegas Bound

Christmas 2011

For The Love Of Coffee

Have you done your own favourites compilation for 2012?  I would love to come and have a peek if so just link me up in the comments section.

I want to thank each of you for following along with me this year.  Your comments, and encouragement mean so much to me.  It's always so humbling that others are actually interested in what's going on in my world.  Thank you all from the bottom of my heart.  I wish each one of you a healthy and happy 2013!

Oh my!... Sherri, ...These are all so beautiful and full of love for your life. I adore your style and am so happy I got to know your art at the Nook. I really LOVE how you used the alphas in that first layout and the 'Sweet Baby' one would melt any mothers heart. Stunning! I wish all good things for you in the coming year, Sherri. Hugs!!
