My Scrappy Top 10 for 2009

Every year I try to go back and look through the pages and projects that I have created through out the year and pick a few favorites. Some I really love some and others are just okay. Touche'. I would like to share my faves for 2009, in no particular order.

This first one I created for my friend Liz's Birthday. I soooo loved this paper by Piggy Tales, like you would not believe. This whole project was only created with scraps. That was all I had of it at the time. It was actually samples that I got when I was out in Chicago for CHA:

This past Summer I took an online class at Big Picture Scrapbooking taught by Christy Tomlinson. Love her and loved this class. It was all about color combinations. This was a LO I did of a very old pic of me and my sister:

You all know how much I love David Cook. You did not think I could get through 2009 without proclaiming my love or at least my crush on him. This LO was for a BASB challenge about crushes:

I really did make a point of getting myself on the page this year. This LO was based on a sketch from Lets Scrap. Love that site. Oh and did I mention I won for this LO. So fun! This is a pic of me at the end of the July Loudon, NH Nascar race. Yes, the race was called for rain, but I stayed out there...being the true blue fan that I am:

This LO was created for my friend Heather for her birthday. She loved it! It is framed and proudly hangs in her office as we speak:

A co-worker friend of mine asked if I would make some invitations for her sister's surprise 30th B-day party. Her only request was to use the colors brown & teal. She was quite pleased with the result and even paid me for them. My first paid gig and a few more soon followed. Loved it!

I love all things Teresa Collins. That is no big secret. I was so excited when her Sports Edition line came out. There is nothing more exciting to me than to be able to combine my favorite sports with my favorite hobby, scrapbooking. This past early Fall I had a chance to go to a Red Sox game. I love being at Fenway. I created this LO to capture that moment and shared it with Teresa. She in turn featured it on her blog. So cool!!

A couple months ago Steve and I had a chance to go see a comedy show hosted by Paul "Fitzy" Fitzgerald as portrayed by Nick Stevens. He is the 'New England sports nitwit'. We adore Fitzy in our house. He is so freakin' hysterical! I am so glad we went. We had the best time, laughed a lot and got to meet him IRL. Of course, I had to document it! I love how this LO turned out. Steve even had it as his computer wallpaper for the longest time:

These pics were taken at The Hall at Patriot Place. That would be my son and his cousin acting silly in the pro shop and I loved it. This LO was based on a sketch from Got Sketch 104, an online clas I took by Valerie Salmon & Janna Wilson:

Here is my little man just playing cool during a daytrip to Lincoln, NH. This LO was based on a sketch that I found through one of my favorite online friend's Jonnelle. Thanks girl! This is a cool sketch. I think I may have had a thing for sketches this past year...

So these were my faves for 2009. It was nice to reflect back on my creativity. I am already working on more LO's and putting the final touches on my December Daily. I am determined to get it completed. A bit behind this time around. Oh well!
Happy New Year!
Here's to a creative 2010!!
