      It’s very popular for people to do a yearly blog post about their favorite projects they made in the last year. I also like to go through my year and pick out my favorite layouts. I love the ones that I feel I put an extra amount of work in and helped my creativity grow. And there are some that are special that I just love because of the picture.

      So, the question is, what are your top 5 favorite projects you made in 2015, and why? If you are one of those who have already blogged about it, just share the link with us. πŸ™‚

        Here are my top five, in no particular order:

        1.

        I LOVE this picture! This is Owen’s best therapist EVER, Miss Courtney. She is such an amazing person and is responsible for helping us to get Owen to use his communication device. The Sunkissed kit had the perfect sentiment for how I feel about how she helped our family.

        2.

        So, I have a difficult time NOT putting flowers on a boy page, and resolved that I wasn’t going to on this layout. I love how it came out. Sometimes I get so excited about embellishments that I forget the fun of really using paper to embellish a page. I cut out so many paper circles, and there really isn’t a lot of actual embellishments, but it still looks complete to me.

        3.

        I made this layout when I was at a crop, and I made it in about 30 minutes following a Blue Fern sketch. I was so irritated that the white crackle paste I brought was dried up and opted to use black for the flourishes, but it wasn’t my first choice. However, it brings out the ribbon band on the hat, I feel like it’s that black stenciling that brings it all together.

        4.

        I love beachy layouts, and this was a special picture from my summer cruise.

        5.

        This is my favorite color scheme, and I just really like the design. πŸ™‚

                Wow Rae – all so beautiful!!!!

                Here are my top 5

                This one is because I loved these photos of Sophie and her friend cracking up in a photo booth
                null

                This layout is the reason I’m on the Maja Design team, even though Sophie told me that this one had too much stuff on it πŸ™‚
                null

                This one is a pic of my grandmother and great grandmother – I just love these vintage pics
                null

                My fave layout from my first Swirlydoos Kit
                null

                And this one just because πŸ™‚

                  Rae, Bec, these are gorgeous!!!!
                  And what a great idea: looking over a year’s worth of work and remembering what inspired us at the time!!!!

                    Here are a few of mine:
                    The grands together a year ago. I like the background stenciling, the frames and flourishes and the how the colors came together.

                    Created for the July Round Robin, this photo shows my Grandmother and my Uncle Jack just before he was shipped overseas. The design and paper tearing that I lifted are wonderful; the twist gave me an opportunity to tell this bit of my family’s history.

                    It’s such a treat when my family can all get together and this was such a special day: the wedding of my nephew and my awesome now-niece. I kept this pretty simple, taking advantage of the elements of the June kit.

                    Sophia among the pumpkins. The October kit included an acrylic balloon and I dusted off my Silks to give this a pop of color.

                    This is probably my favorite layout from 2015. I love Sophia’s pose, I love how my chippie (based on Rae’s tutorial) came out, and I love the papers and embellies that I used.
