Looking Back at 2011

This year was an eventful one. I took the girls to their first ever Barnum and Bailey Circus. They absolutely loved it! Now that they are older, I hope to take them to the Transyberian Orchestra in 2012. I can't wait!

My scrappy year has been awesome this year! I was honored to be chosen to be on the GCD Studios, Creative Memories, and Noel Mignon design teams. I learned so much and met some pretty cool designers. Although my terms for Creative Memories and Noel Mignon have ended, I still will be checking in every so often to see what the inspiration from the new teams.

That brings me to reflect over my scrapping over this past year. Here are my favorites from 2011:

1. Tea Party - GCD Studios

2. Turning Six - Lily Bee

3. Two Teeth - Bella Blvd.

4. A Cold Treat - Crate Paper

5. Four Inches - Sassafras

6. A Little Bit Shy - Noel Mignon kit

7. My Girl - GCD Studios

8. Goodies - Noel Mignon kit

9. Sticky News - Noel Mignon kit

10. Bike Ride - Pink Paislee

And that is it for 2011. Happy New Year's Eve!

See you next year!

When Things Go Awry

I have discovered that toddlers are not always the most willing subjects to have their picture taken. My daughter was no exception to this rule. I was lucky enough to get a picture of her being both upset and happy during Christmas. I used these pictures to document what happened that day on my layout.

The World's Greatest from Funhouse
Clown Alley from Funhouse
Brave Soul from Soul Food

Christmas is a happy time in our lives but don't forget to document the not so happy or perfect times. They make nice little snapshots in time that you can go back and reminisce on.
