{Top 10}

As the year comes to a close, (seriously?? just 4 more days??) I always like to look back and pick my Top 10 favorite layouts from the year. Here's my faves from twenty-eleven:
                                  #1. Dad & Me
My Hubby and his Dad, way back when.
I love the cute glasses sticker!

#2. Why I Scrapbook
The reason I scrapbook,
the stories and the memories.

#3 Santa & Me
I'm so glad I had these photos taken,
and that my Mom kept them all these years!!

#4 First Day of Pre-School
My firstborns first day of pre-school.
21 years ago, seems like yesterday.

#5 This is Me
A little about me and things I like.
I'm glad I did this online challenge, since I don't
do may layouts about just me.

#6 Last Day of 10
He's growing up before my eyes!

#7 Just Us Two
One of my favorite pics of my hubby and me.
Me and my cowboy.

#8 Summer
An old photo that had never made it's
way onto a scrapbook page until this year.

#9  1921
Family history for the kids,
Great-Great Grandma many years ago.

#10 Hello Pooh
Gracie with one of her
favorite Disneyland friends.

It's fun to look back on a year of scrapbooking and see the trends (like machine or hand stitching) and notice I still use just 1 photo on quite a few layouts, but am really trying to use more ;)  I wonder what trends will arrive in 2012, and how many I will follow. In the end, all that matters is that I'm telling the stories. The stories I want to remember forever.
