Top Ten of 2013 Blog Hop (with a Giveaway!!!)

2013 is wrapping up and that means it is time to share my 10 Favorite Projects of the Year!  

It has been another fun filled year for me in the Scrapbooking Industry!  I've been blessed to design for several companies and get published multiple times throughout the year.  I continue to love this hobby and am so thankful for the downtime and creative outlet it provides me with!  

I've gathered together with a group of talented ladies from throughout the scrapbooking industry for a blog hop that is abundant in talent.  And bonus....there's some prizes along the way too!  I have a goody package to giveaway and I will share all the details of that below my Top Ten.  

Picking my top ten was totally hard!  Some of these are sentimental favorites, some are just designs I love, and some may even be things that no one will love besides me :)  I am fairly convinced that if you look thru all the projects of the year, you would come up with a different list for me, that's the beauty of this hobby!  So without further adieu, here are my Top Ten!


This was created purely for enjoyment!  I absolutely loved Teresa Collins Christmas line "Santa's List"

Reverse canvas using holiday decor
I created this reverse canvas for a design team project for Ribbons Unlimited.  The heart is made up of tinsel garland!


This layout was created for Kiwi Lane design team project and features lots of My Mind's Eye goodies!

Happy Harvest by Doodlebug Design - Kiwi Lane Templates
This was another "just for fun" layout featuring all kinds of goodies from the Doodlebug Design "Happy Harvest" line.  This is probably my favorite layout of the year!

Christian home decor using Paper House Productions by Christine Meyer
I created this wall hanging for a design team project for Paper House Productions.  It is going to be featured on a display board in Joann's stores nationwide in the coming year!


This card was published in Paper Crafts Magazine in a special feature using household items...the blue heart is made up of trash bag ties!



Quite a contrast in card style from the last one!  This was created as a sample for The Scrapbooking Studio - a fabulous online and local store!


This was also a sample for The Scrapbooking Studio!  It is another reverse canvas. For this one I created the heart by folding circles into squares!  I really enjoy creating canvasses :)


I love everything about this layout....all the triangles, the quote, the feather, and most of all the crrrazy picture of my sweet boy!  This was made for fun and features lots of Bella Blvd.


This last one is also a sample for The Scrapbooking Studio.  I had fun playing with the title work on this one and just adore the colors in this line from Pebbles Inc.

So what do you think?  Did I capture some good ones???

Now for the rest of the hop! 
You should have arrived here from Monika's blog, if you didn't you definitely will want to go back there and check it out! Here's the whole list:
Christine Meyer ***You are here****
Suzanna Lee ***Head here next***
That means next up you get to go see one of my absolute favorite scrappers in the whole industry! She's talented, she's kind, she designs for soooo many awesome companies, and she's one of my very closest scrappy friends - so go show her some love and be amazed by the talent of Suzanna Lee!
