Top 10 of 2009

Thanks Megan & Robyn for the challenge & hopefully i can do the 2nd part of this challenge....

This one was fun, yet an important thing to be preserved... love me some Sassafrass

I like this one, because it wouldn't be a typical layout from me, i think it truely displays the mood

This was really fun b/c i got to go back down memory lane with my mom, recalling homes & addresses

this one was lots of fun b/c it made me step outside of my box & think about life

Reminds me how much i love to shop at Goodwill

loved the challenge of doing the squares/mini layouts(maybe has something to do with the Sassafrass too;))

first layout that i used tag packaging on

this is one of my fave pictures that Megan has taken & it was fun to use up old papers on this one

loved the bright colors & this just reminds me of how these two girls make 2 x the trouble, the messes, you name it..

a fun one of my daughter & her friends dressing up..

Made from Scratch~ Moxxie

Playin' around with Moxxie's Made from scratch line..

Sweet Baby Kaitlynn

Picked up this frame at the $ store a while back, Moxxie's new Baby Mine line & a picture of my new niece worked perfectly together.
