My 15 Favourite Projects of 2015

Happy New Year everyone!

It's become a bit of a tradition to document my favourite layouts of the past year.  This year on the Paper Issues Blog the DT have posted their top 15 favourite projects of the year, and links to their personal site so you can have a closer look.  Here are mine at a glance.

Below, I've enlarged them all for a better look, in no particular order my favourites of 2015 are as follows:

I remember feeling "good" in this photo.  Fresh hair, a gorgeous day, and feeling younger than I am.  And this Bella Rouge collection was so wonderful to create with.
Belle and I went for brunch one morning with her friend and her mother.  As I sat across from her waiting for our brunch dates I was so taken with her beauty.  Those lashes, they jump out at you as soon as she looks at you.

This girl, she is such a joy, so easy going, and creative, and funny.  She is our quintessential middle child, with an agenda all her own, marching to the beat of her own drum as they say.
Loved this photo Belle took of her friends practicing one afternoon before Pointe class.  Loved this Paper Camellia kit, ribbon will always have a soft spot in my heart among crafting trends and techniques.

These pretty tags were the very first projects I created for my role on the Pink Paislee DT.
Another beautiful Paper Camellia Kit.  This photo of Eden and Maggy make me happy.  I love scrapping everyday photos.

This one was a lift from one of my fellow Pink Paislee DT members.  Love the huge bow behind the photo, and that ampersand.
Still hard to believe this kid will complete High School in just one more year.

Eden's 13 birthday party, made for some fun photo ops in the backyard, and again during their fun wall climbing session at Vertical Adventures.
A very recent layout I completed using Simple Stories Claus & Co collection.  I really love the black mixed in with the tradition red & green.
This woven background was so fun to create, angling it made it a little more original than the usual.
Pinkfresh Studio has some great papers and designs.  This sheet was one of my favourites, it was easy to make it look whimsical with just a tad bit of stitching and embellishments.

There is just something about this one that makes it one of my most favourites for the year.  It's fun to create at 8.5x11 format every once in awhile.  Not sure I'll ever stop using tags, vellum, and flair buttons.

Cedar Lane by Pink Paislee had so many beautiful elements with which to create.
Now, that I see this layout I realize that I have yet to create a layout celebrating 42.  Perhaps that's because then it would be official, haha.  I certainly do not feel as though I am already well into my forties.
That's it folks, a handful of layouts that jump out at me when I look through the dozens, and dozens projects I created this past year.  Have you created a blog post of your favourites?  If you leave me your blog link in the comments I would love to stop by and leave you some love, it's a privilege to encourage one another in this wonderful hobby we all love so much.

Happy first day of a brand new year friends! Pin It
