Favorites of 2011

The year year is here, and I wanted to share some of my favorite layouts from last year.

Three I can't post because they were picked up for publication. One I'm not sure will be published--it was for the February CK, but that's out and it's not in? That happens sometimes. That LO used a sketch from Sketch Support and was called "A Year of Date Nights."

The other two were layouts that I knew would get picked up for publication after I made them. I don't get that feeling all the time, but this time I did. They are called "Open Sky" and "He's Got Goals," and they should be in the May Scrapbook Trends.

Here's the rest:

(ETA: Just noticed a number fell off, goshdarnit! The missing number is 6.)

Some things I noticed about these pages:
  1. Most have stitching in some way.
  2. Most also have color--paint or ink or mist.
  3. Most have circles--within in the design or in the photos. Funny, because I'm still so linear!
  4. Strips of patterned paper--I'm still a stripper, LOL!
  5. Lots of patterned paper; also white space.
  6. Most of the time, something overlaps a photo.
  7. Border punches or fussy cut borders.
Thanks for looking at my favorites from last year--hoping everyone has a terrific new year!

have you gotten paid for that layout that's supposed to be in Feb issue of ck? they switched to 6 issues a year, so there was a bunch of reshuffling.

I've admired all of these throughout 2011 and I look forward to seeing more of your wonderful and inspiring creations in the upcoming year!!!!!
