Looking back...

In keeping with tradition from last year, I have put together a blog post of my top 10 favorite layouts of 2010. I love seeing these posts from my friends, and I had a lot of fun going back and figuring out my favorites. Unfortunately, I didn't scrap as much in 2010 as I would have liked since I spent many months of it pregnant and very sick, so narrowing down my list wasn't too terribly hard LOL!

This was one of the first layouts I did last year - it was completed for Fancy Pants for CHA Winter, and I got to hand deliver it and see it hanging at the show in person, which was fun. I think this is my favorite FP line ever, and I used it for a bunch of layouts!
This one was made using an AMM kit. This layout was a bit indulgent for me, lol, since I used a whole package of chipboard frames, but I had a lot of fun with it, and I loved the end result.
This was also an AMM layout. I just adore these photos of Chloe and me when she was a baby, and I love the sweet feel to this. I also like the homespun touch of the handstitching.
This was a Fancy Pants layout. I don't make "me" layouts all that often, and I really enjoyed this one. I had fun with layering on this one, too.
I really love everything about this one. This is one of my favorite photos of the two bigs ever, and I used some of my favorite techniques on here (misting, handcutting, layering).
Another Fancy Pants layout (with a lot of the Roadshow line again lol) - I adore these photos, and I love the soft colors and enjoyed adding little details.
My first layout of all my kiddos :-) I loved this Jenni Bowlin line (thanks, Doris!), and this one came together really easily for me.
One of my favorite Lucas photos :-) I used Teresa Collins baby boy line for this one - I had gotten these papers back at CHA Winter, and i'd been saving them in case I had a boy. Once Lucas was born, I couldn't wait to use them!
I just shared this one last week (done with last month's AMM kit), but oh how I love it! Love the gorgeous doilies in the papers, and I am really happy with how the family photo came out (even used it on our holiday cards).
This one is so new that I haven't even had a chance to share it yet :-) While at my LSS two weeks ago, I saw these new Webster's Pages lines, and I knew the one with the cupcakes would be perfect to scrap Chloe's birthday party pics. All these lines are gorgeous, and I had fun combining them and adding in details (fun fact - the pink glittery tulle on the outside edge was leftover from the tutu that I made for chloe that she is wearing in the pics).
So there you have it, my friends. Thanks for looking back with me!

We were away Thursday afternoon until today in the Pocono mountains (in PA) for New Years. It's a tradition that we started with a good friend of mine from college (and her hubby and kids) many years ago, when we were both first engaged to the guys. Our kids are very close in age, and they have a blast together, as do we adults. We don't get to go every year, but we were excited that we got to go two years in a row now. Anyway, it was a great way to ring in the new year, and I hope you all had a wonderful holiday, as well. I'm wishing you all a VERY happy and healthy 2011!!
