Top 10 ... er... 13! for 2013

Several of my scrappy friends are doing a blog-hop today highlighting their favorite projects from 2013.  Its a great hop you should check it out (click here).  I enjoyed the hop so much, that I decided it was time to look through past layouts and projects and try to pick my top 10 {more like top 13 for 2013!}

And here they are!
1.  Gesso - this was my first application of gesso on a layout and I really loved the simple look.
 2.  This is a card that I just loved and it was one that I entered in a card contest - made it all the way to the top 5.
 3.  This was my first time using corrugated cardboard and the texture it helped to create was fun - really added to the dirt road in the photo.
 4.  I finally - FINALLY - used this Bo-Bunny kit - after three years of hoarding it!  Ijust loved the colors and my niece's photo - this was a gift for her.
 5.  October Afternoon's line was just perfect for a reflection on my son's first day of kindergarden.  I created this during the summer before he started high school.
 6.  Probably one of the cutest layouts of my little cutie!  The colors just made this layout one of my favorites.
 7.  Simple Stories became one of my most loved collections for scrapping - and I tried something new - using ink to draw on my layout.
 8.  I've always loved the papers from Wester's Pages and this is a layout that hangs in my classroom.  I just smile each time I look at it.
 9.  Without a doubt, this layout of the family on vacation was a favorite from the minute I started working on it.  Lots of shapes, patterns, colors and KLD templates.
 10.  After reading a scrapbooking magazine where this technique was featured, I grabbed a photo from many years ago and tried my hand at extending the photo.  Even my kids think someone else did it - Pure LOVE!
 11.  There's not much I can say about this one - other than I loved the photo and the way the layering came together on this layout.  (smooch)
 12.  Another cute layout of my girlie using Simple Stories.
 13.  All things marching band this fall ... we had such a great time with band and we were certainly busy bees with the preparations necessary to get the band on the field each week.
There you have it - a trip down memory lane.  Cannot wait to see what 2014 will have in store for me and my sweet family.
