Last Year I did a post of my top 10 favorite layouts for the year. You can see that post here.
I scrapped a lot more in 2008 than in 2007, so I was trying to think of a way to pick some favorites, because it would be very hard to pick a top 10. So I decided to pick 1 from each month of 2008. Here goes:
January:Still my Baby - I was just entering the second trimester with Abigail when I did this layout. Most of the time my journaling reads as if I'm writing to the kids. This was a sentiment I wanted to get down on paper for Natalie.
February: Happiness in a Kiss. Love these pics of John and Natalie. Also not my usual style of scrapbooking, so this one stood out for me.
March:Snow - We actually has our one and only snow of the winter in March. And even at that it was melted by lunchtime. I got Natalie outside just in time to take a few pics before it was gone.
April:Tickled Silly - This was the layout that I broke into the publishing market with. It appeared in the September Issue of Scrapbook Trends. I think my dad really enjoyed showcasing the magazine at work. :)
May:Taking Care of Pooh - My sweet girl was something with that life size Pooh doll.
June:My Cup Runneth Over - This one speaks for itself. After bringing Abigail home from the hospital it was the first Layout I made.
July:You in the Pool - Natalie's first swim of the Summer in her little Pool. Ironically enough it was her only swim in that pool. With a newborn last summer we just didn't make it outside much.
August:Summer Gift - Another one of my favorite pictures. LOVE Natalie's expression and all the pink I used here.
September:Love Birds - The pictures were just shortly after Papa and MeMe got engaged. They were so giddy they were like 2 teenagers. :) And I love the little bird stamp I used here.
October:Look Who's Two - This owl seemed perfect for this layout and I just had to do a play on words here. Also so hard to believe that "baby" from January's layout was turning two!
November:Keep Hangin' On - Another one where the journaling is talking to Abigail. Just another one of those "momisms" I wanted to get down .
December:Christmas 2008 - To be quite honest, I'm not real thrilled with our family Christmas picture. Natalie looks mad and we all look a little washed out. But even so, I love this layout. The pics of the kiddos save it. ha.
So there you have it. Some of my favorites from 2008. Wanna know how many Layouts I did? It's somewhere around 250 give or take a few. Yes, I really love scrapbooking. ;)
