10 Favorites of 2008

With 2009 quickly approaching, I thought it would be fun to post my 10 favorite layouts for 2008. I had so much fun scrapping this year!! I really focused on dimension and getting out of my box! I used scrapping as my therapy when my mom passed on, and it brought me great release and comfort. I love this hobby that has become my passion. I poured my heart and soul into my work and these are my favorite of the year (not in any particular order:
1. This layout is a design made for the So Sketchy Blog. Ally's sketches really stretched me and I had a ball with each and every one of them. These pictures of my sweet girl just tell the whole story. It really has gone by in the blink of an eye!!

2. This layout was done for a challenge at Scrapping the Music. Scrapping the Music is one of the best challenge blogs out there and I have loved being on their DT. I look so forward to what 2009 has in store! This layout is of my sweet dd once again. She was getting ready for the prom and I just love the moment that was captured here! 3. The layout is of my oldest daughter and was created for the So Sketchy Blog. The sketch was amazing and worked perfectly for this sweet little angelic picture. Little did I know that the gold floss would be so hard to work with, but I love the results!4. This layout was created for the So Sketchy blog too. I love how the desing came together!! My sweet dd was trying to get into nursing school and the quote was perfect and still holds true: "Getting ahead in a difficult profession requires avid {Faith} in yourself. That is why some people with mediocre talent but with great inner drive go much further than people with vastly superior talent"~Sophia Loren. This layout as well as the others were made with my Studio Calico kits. Studio Calico kits totally rock!!
5. This was made for the Scrapping the Music challenge. Lots of Prima flowers and SC goodies!


6. Another STM challenge layout. This photo of my dd and her husband is just gorgeous and I just love the splash of red along with the black and cream.
7. This layout for the So Sketchy Blog was sparked by my mom's illness. I took a family photo and cut the two of us out of it. Little did I know how little time we had and how much more important the memories would become.

8. This would be my first STM challenge. The song was amazing and these pictures fit perfectly. I won the challenge and eventually a spot on the DT!!! I love STM!!!

9. This was just a fun layout of my sweet dd's. I used SC goodies and it wa #1 on Two Peas for several days! It really spurred me on to becoming a better scrapper!!

10. This layout was made for Little Red Scrapbook. It was one of the first layouts that I did that got me out of my box. Use the same photo more than once on a layout??? Why not. I loved the results!! What a cutie she is!! 11. I realized I forgot another one of my favorites. This on is for LRS as well. You just gotta love Sassafrass Lass and Jenni Bowlin papers!!
I had a blast scrapping in 2008 and I am looking forward to what 2009 has in store!!


Thanks for looking and I hope you have a great day!!

I love all your layouts Kristii! I plan on really challenging myself in 2009 not only to get more pages done but to come out from my comfort zone and try new things. Thanks for all the great inspiration!
