Best of 2010: Scrapbook Layouts

My 10 12 Favorite Scrapbook Layouts of 2010

 If the Crown Fits:  This is the first project that I used any "stitching" or "doodling."  It's still one of my favorites!

Sprinkled with Fun:  I love the patterns and colors in this layout.  I used little seed beads for the "sprinkles."
1st Dollhouse:  I think red, green and sky blue are such cheerful fun colors.  The little house is from Sugar and Spice - such a great cartridge for baby/toddler layouts.

Owl Love U Always:  This is a really simple layout, but I love the combination of colors and patterned paper.  That paper is from my favorite DCWV stack - Flower Shower.

Winter Wonderland:  This one just makes me happy.  Winter Frolic is such a great all around winter/holiday themed cartridge.

Lots of Shopping:  This layout was for one of Emma's Throwback Thursday Challenges.  I love all the "girly" images from Paisley.  
Play:  I think this may be my favorite layout of all time.  It took a long time because I inked and doodled on EVERY cut, but it was totally worth it.  If you're interested, I filmed a video for this one that shows how I put a scrapbook layout together from start to finish.

Celebrate:  This is my most popular layout...mostly because super sweet Angelica from Peachy Keen Stamps featured this layout on their Facebook page.  

Autumn Days:  I love the little squirrel peeking out of the tree.  Create a Critter really turned out to be one of my favorite cartridges of 2010.  

You're Tweet:  This was the very first project that I made with my Imagine.  I am still in love with the fact that the Imagine sizes the patterns based on what sized image you are cutting out.  

Happy Birthday:  I made this layout for Momo's birthday blog hop.  I love the little pennants.  This layout is even cuter in person.  
Seasons Greetings:  This is a super simple layout, but it is a great example of how I tend to base my color schemes on my pictures.  Sky blue, and red gingham stocking = the same colors/patterns repeated in my layout.  (I may be slightly crazy...I'm ok with that.)  ;)

I had a MUCH harder time narrowing down my list of scrapbook layouts.  I started out just picking pictures of the layouts without counting and I ended up with 19.  I thought 19 was a little excessive, so I managed to narrow it down to 12.  I've only been scrapbooking since April, but I LOVE it.  Expect LOTS of layouts in list keeps getting longer and longer.

Happy New Year!  I hope all of you have a fun and SAFE holiday!  

Make sure to stop by tomorrow for Joanna's "Let's Celebrate!" Blog Hop!  There are sooo many talented bloggers participating!  (I'm sure there will be some blog candy along the way too!)
