Looking back on 2012

WOW its the last day of the year!!!! And I will say it again, where has the time gone??? Its been a great year for me and our family. We brought our farm, I got published in Scrapbooking Memories, had 2 more layouts accepted for 2 different mags, become a DT for Scrap Everything and A2Z Scraplets, Youngest girl turned 1, Oldest girl finished Pre Primary and Middle girl starts Kindy next yr. All in all one GREAT yr.

I have notice a few blogs doing the top 12 layouts of the yr so I have decided why not join on the bang wagon

Scraped at the very beginning of the year for a challenge (not sure for who now) but it was white with one other colour. As the flowers had green and the brads had silver I decided not to enter. But I just loved how the ladybug turned out, a chipboard painted with brads as the dots. And I love this photo :)

This was not scrapped this yr but was my very first EVER published layout. My girls just love puddles :)

My middle girl just before she had a hair cut and the 'why of why must you play in dirt AFTER a shower???'

My first layout after I had found Handmade Halo. The pink flower, the blur lace, bottle cay and tea bag all came from her. I have since brought at least half the shop since then

Have been dying to scrap this photo for years. My first time using Texture Paste.

Another Muddle layout. 2nd time of using texture paste, used lots of Handmade Halo and Purple Pumpkin. Put this layout up on Purple Pumpkin Facebook page and won the monthly prize of the layouts put up on the facebook page.

I did this for the sketch challenge for Charms Creation and won!!!! YAY me. Another very fab place to get handmade embellishments :)

Did this for, I think, Scrap the girls challenge. Just love this one. Took only a day to do, which in my world just does not happen with 3 girls. All the flowers, charms are from Handmade Halo

My new baby with her Scottish Grandma. Love these photos. A mix of Charms and Halo, was really getting into all the handmade stuff

One of the 2 layouts I have ever done of me. And I used a shopping bad for the background

My very first layout for Scrap Everything.

And last but not least my first layout for A2Z Scraplets

If you have made it to the end o this post WELL DONE, thanks for looking and being part of my blog for 2012 and look forward to seeing you in the new year and for the GIVEAWAY I am having starting sometime in January. It will have Handmade Halo, Charms Creations, A2Z Scrplets and MORE..........

Thanks again

Belinda :)
