Top Ten Blog Hop

The wonderful Christine Meyer from Practical Scrappers has organized a Top Ten blog hop and I was thrilled to be a part of it.  We have all chosen our top ten projects from the past year to post on our blogs.  Be sure to hop along and visit everyone, some of them have giveaways, there are so many of us showcasing different styles, you will be wowed I am sure!

I had a difficult time deciding on my favorites.  Some of them have been picked up for publication so I couldn't show those ones and of the rest I had chosen 20 projects!  I finally narrowed it down to my Top Ten and I decided to make it a mix of cards, layouts and altered projects.  So here you go:










This one is definitely one of my favorites as the card made the cover of Paper Crafts in May!


Now since I am still so excited about recently joining the Echo Park Design Team, I have a Love Story prize pack up for grabs.


To enter for the prize simply leave me a comment telling me which of these projects was your favorite, easy peesy!

Now if you just happened here by chance you may want to start at the beginning and go back to visit everyone along the way.
