The Best of 2012

I love this time of year.  It's a time of looking forward to a new year with hope and optimism, as well as looking backward in reflection and contemplation. 

*And it seems that there's a movement afoot to encourage the rest of the scrappy community to post their favorites.  Stacey at Oh Schwiet Scrap is hosting an informal blog hop for participants of a top ten favorites.  The idea is to list your favorite ten layouts or projects, then share it with her in the comments section of her blog.  She'll compile all the posts and send out a RAK to one lucky participant.  

Here's the link to Stacey's blog post - which also includes her list and tutorials - so you can check it out and join the fun.  Stacey has some pretty amazing talent - and her creative ideas are always fun. 

I had to winnow out from a massive total of 156 completed projects.  I was a busy busy girl in 2012!  I think 2013 will see me slowing down a bit.  I've resigned from my job at my LSS and won't be creating projects for teaching classes any longer.  I'll miss seeing my students every month, but I'll still have time to take a class or two, and I'm pretty sure that I'll have plenty of scrapping time with my design team duties for Paper Mixing Bowl and Nuts About Sketches. 

Anyway - enough of that.  Here are MY favorite 12 projects for 2012.  And I hope your new year is safe and happy!   

Ahhh!  That's The Spot!
