My Favorite posts of 2011- a HOP

  In keeping with the spirit of the season, Karin of With an "i" For Paper! blog fame has started a year in review blog hop to look back and high some of your favorite projects from the past year.  I had to join in- it was fun to review the past years creating...!  Thanks Karin!


Here are my favorite posts of 2011

Jan- My parents 12x12 50th Anniversary scrapbook page:


 I do not scrapbook much, but this is my favorite SB page ever- don't you love the picture??? The floral digi is by McMahon Five Designs.

Feb- I love the background on this card- I used Creative Inspirations paint- so it is really shimmery..... 

(Digi Doodles image)

March- I am Irish, so had to go with this fun card (image and papers McMahon Five Designs)

April...Flowers.......

The image is McMahon Five and the DSP is Prima

August:
 My first Gothic Arch card. Image McMahon Five Designs- cardstock Paper Temptress.

September:

October:

And- I made this card with a digi from Create with TLC:
