Bye 2010!

I guess now that it is January 5th I really can say goodbye to 2010! I really wanted a year in review post up before the 5th, but with my little guy not sleeping well (read--ME not sleeping at all) and other forces at work (read--ME sleeping in the cold playroom on a hard futon because I saw a mouse) it just wasn't in the cards. Thankfully my boy is feeling better and our house guest has been, ummm, "uninvited." So...without further ado...

Actually I have one further ado...unfortunately I can't post a few of my favorite layouts from this past year but that is because.... this is the first year I have several out for publication!!! I couldn't be more thrilled about it. In fact, I just had another one of my favorite layouts requested by ScrapStreet for publication in March. So we'll have to make do with these runner ups ;)
Not sure that I even had a chance to share this one yet? In any case, the tags and stamp are from Elle's Studio. Did I mention how excited I am to be designing for them??!! Probably, I did lol. I got my first DT package and all the new products are launched. If you are like me...you will want them all!

Here is another one with tons of Elle's Studio goodies. I loved using lots of tags and the small pictures with rounded corners. I don't do monthly recap layouts a lot but this one was so fun, I am thinking I may need to soon.

I won some My Little Shoebox goodies from a Facebook contest with this one.

I won the Echo Park Life is Good collection on a Facebook contest with this one. (I was never a big fan of Facebook until I started getting free goodies lol).

I was thrilled to be "Soup Spotted" several times on the Jillibean Soup blog this year--this was one that was posted.

I got to Guest Design for Scribble Scrabble and this was my favorite project from that spot.

Although I have yet to make an appearance there, some of my layouts made it to CHA this year (designing for Moxxie).

I was beyond thrilled to make the Upsy Daisy Deisgn Team and this layout (based on DT coorindater Kim Sonkenson's sketch) is my fav so far.

I have gotten such a kick out of designing for Just Imagine Crafts (because I am addicted to punches) that I was thrilled when they asked us to stay on a few more months. This is my favorite layout with Kreaxions punches and that cool new big butterfly die.

No accolades here, but this serves as a reminder that this guy needs to be featured more often :)

and how about a few more that just plain make me happy?

And with that, I leave 2010 once and for all. But stop by tomorrow I may have some news ;) AND I am getting close to 200 posts--I feel a giveaway coming :)
