Sorry that I am late with this at home for the holidays make being on time for ANYTHING difficult! I did finally narrow down my # ones for April, May and here they are... (5-6-&7)

April brought on the CK scrapbook Expo to Houston...and I created this layout to enter into one of the contests. I did not win...but came very close! I tried my hand at border punches on this one...which I have since become ADDICTED to. I also used rub ons here...and I found out that I do like them.

May brought on new paper burning...!!??? I had never even imagined that I would burn my paper for my scrapbooks...but I did ...and while I love how it is not a technique that I have maintained as one of my favorites. This layout also is special to me because it is my daughter's song and NAME...a super special little girl!

And now June. I think this layout ranks super high on my all time favorites. Not only did it win in the Scraptathalon challenge that I participated in...but it also won the hearts of many many people. This is my family...all of our hands in a circle...never ending. This is the way that God intended it...and the way that I hope that it will stay. I did circle journaling...which was part of the challenge...and I had never done...I used tons of flowers, stickles, ribbon, and a metal butterfly jewel that had come from a broken necklace. Obviously by now...I have grown a LOT in my scrapping, and in my confidence in my self and my abilities to create a worthy layout.

Thank you all for looking! I will be back again tomorrow with 3 more...THESE will be super hard. It is getting to the end of the year and by now, I am loving more of my layouts than I used to..and I am preparing myself to try out for a Design team for the very first time in my life......stay tuned for tomorrow's reveal!

beautiful layouts Misty. there's something special about each layout. Love the butterflies on "inspire", the colors on "like a diamond in the skye" and the follow through of the circles in "love"
