2012 Favorites (Photos and Projects)

And now for the projects and photos that I especially loved this year. 
 
These little notes were from a mini class taught by Kim Watson on the ClubCK website.  I was really pleased with how they turned out and can't wait to make more for Project Life!
 
I adored this little Christmas organizer and was so excited to use it...until I misplaced it!  I only found it a few days before Christmas so I'll have to use it next year.  It won the Lily Bee Manufacturer's Challenge over at 2Peas, which was pretty exciting for me!
 
I made this little banner at the beginning of the year and I am still so happy with how it turned out.  I like it more and more each day.  :)
 
I think this was my favorite mini album of 2012.  I loved the products I used, the photos and the feeling of accomplishment I got from finally scrapping that little trip. 
 
 
And now for some favorite photos.  These are just a few that I could find as I had an external hard drive crash and I lost a ton of edited photos.  :(
 
This was one of the first photos I took during my photo class with Maggie Holmes.  I was so happy with how it turned out because Audrey wasn't in the most cooperative of moods that day!
 
 This photo of a friend's husband only exists because I posted my class pics on Facebook and she asked if I'd take pics of her and her husband.  I was so flattered!  I love this pic because he looks like he's having such a good time and men don't normally enjoy photo shoots! 
 
I love this photo of Mickey holding the second tooth he's ever lost.  He was so proud!

Another of Mickey, this one from my class as well.  He was such a good sport about posing for photos for me.  Love my little man!
 
And, a photo from our little trip to the beach.  Aud loved her first time at the coast and I loved the time spent with a wonderful friend.  (Need that again, soon!!!)


So, there you have it!  Some favorites from 2012.  I'm looking forward to making new favorites this year!
