My Top Ten from 2011

Isn't it funny how we all have different styles and preferences.  I am about to post MY personal favorite layouts of mine for the year, and you may be think to yourself, "wow...I wouldn't have picked that one", or "you should have included this other layout."  I've said it before, but it's funny how you post a layout that you just love and it gets barely any comments, and then you post a layout that you don't love as much, and everyone else loves it.  Or you submit your favorite layout several times, but it doesn't get picked up.  But then the one that you almost didn't send because you don't like it as much does get picked up.  It happens to me all the time.

There are a few layouts that actually would have made my list, but they are out for publication and can't be included at this time, so if you don't see one of your favorites, then that may be why.

So here are my top ten:












A lot of them are recent layouts...I noticed that last year when I made my top ten too.  I guess that means I am growing and developing more of my own style.  :)

Thanks for stopping in today!  I love seeing your top ten layouts too...so let me know if you've posted them!

Have a wonderful day!

Your Top Ten Layouts are all gorgeous. It would be hard to pick a favorite...fantastic inspiring work. I love the design of "So Sweet" but adore Broken. Not often we put our true feelings on a page.

I love the 'broken' one best as well - something you & I share, I think, as 2011 has been a very tough year. I like the idea of not celebrating it exactly, but acknowledging it. I find my most recent creations to be favourites too. I'm posting my 'year of favourites' on my blog month by month, at http://onecraftymama-onecraftymama.blogspot.com

You have some amazing layouts to show for the year girl!!! Love your use of pattern papers. The broken one is probably my favorite, love the colors, the theme, the whole thing!

Steffanie said...

These are fantastic! I really love "Tis the season"---the fence, the gingerbread man, the hanging ornaments, the die-cut background...so much to love! Thanks for sharing!

I love these! My favorites are the ones with the pp backgrounds, the squares and the hexagons!

anazelia said...

Those are all beautiful. I will have to do a top ten favorite post too

Penny said...

Love the layouts, my favorite is the same as many others, the "Broken, but not defeated", although I don't know what you went through, it say's SO much about yourself that you have the courage to "get back up", when life deals you a setback! I also loved the Tis the Season, mainly because I have never been able to take great photo's of lights! Love the other's also, those are just my favorites! Thanks so much for the lovely comments on my blog also! Love Penny who hopes you have a better 2012 year!

Tracy said...

Tracey Taylor said...

That Tis the Season page is simply show stopping! Wonderful year in review. I love to see all the stitching.
