Favorite pages from 2012

When you read this, I should be in the air, heading to California for CHA! I will blog every day this weekend, sharing some of my favorite products and projects that I see. Until then, hee's a list I had so much fun making: my favorite pages from 2012. Since it was the year of 12, I picked my 12 favorites. (Note: I ignored the ones that are going to be published this year.) Here they are:

I did this page as a guest blogger at Simple Scrapper. My post was about scrapping the stressful moments of life. This looks complicated, but I'm pretty sure those are two 4x6 photos with 6 pics embedded in them.

One of my first pages for Elle's Studio. I had a love affair with big photos and bright colors this year. Plus embossing.

What can I say, I turned 40 this year. This page commemorates the event. I lay some metal numbers down, misted, then stitched for the number.

This is an "inspired by what Dominic said" page. I just got it back from publication, and I have to say, it was a fun page to make. A fun way to record your life. Have your scrapped your cool stuff and pretty stuff?

Another Dominic page, this time his mild obsession with water towers. This page shows my love affair with circles this year too.

Again: my love affair with circles. And my husband. I love this picture of us.

I love two page layouts. The challenge of putting them together is great. Here I scrapped my son Rowan's  black belt ceremony. Kudos to him!

This page was a serendipitous "Those products randomly sitting on my table look good together, so I'll use them on this page" moment.

I finally gave up looking for some iconic childhood photos and scrapped the page anyway. Thank goodness for photo frame stamps and journaling.

Another big photo, but I was also inspired by product-the photo frame let me zero in on my son in the big photo, and it made the page more interesting.

A page about my grandpa and my memories of him, especially this phrase he said. I like how everything worked together on this page.

Another page where the perfect product--in this case, KI Flashback--led to the page idea. I had so much fun making the page!

This one was for The Scrap Review reviewing Bazzill Beach House. Again, big photo (I guess I'm in a rut, but it's a rut I like!). This was picked for the cover of ScrapStreet Magazine.

I think I posted more than 12--oops! Ah well. It was a fun year for scrapping. Now off to CHA to see what I'll be using to scrap with this year.

I should choose the LO of our families together, but I think my favorite is the one of Rowan on the rocks at Acadia; the photo is awesome and the embellies are perfect!
