Top 10 of 2011


Wow, I cannot believe 2011 is almost done and dusted. And not soon enough if you ask me. It was quite a challenging year at times for me so far from my favourite. However I am proud of my achievements regards to my scrapbooking. I started the year as a complete and utter newbie, dabbling here and there over the years in some totally flat, dimensionless scrap pages. Then I discovered challenge blogs and found so many wonderful and inspirational scrappy friends. I somehow managed to get on some design teams (thanks to those lovely people who were willing to take me on) and my scrapbooking skills improved 1000%. Still a long way to go compared to those I have come to admire, however like any new skill... it takes practice and I've been having lots of it!

So I thought I would take this opportunity to share 10 of my favourite layouts of 2011. It can be hard to narrow it down and there are a couple of favourites I am not allowed to share due to acceptances from Scrapbooking Memories (Wow... another thing that still amazes me) and a couple of very recent creations for DT purposes, so here are 10 favourites that I am allowed to share:

Even in this collection of layouts,  you can see the development of my style over the space of a year.

I also wanted to share my top 6 OTP projects:
