Top 10 in twenty-eleven

The brilliant and oh so crafty Kellie Winnell has posted a top 10 in '11 on her blog, and has also provided a linky for you to link up too.
Picking a top 10 is going to be difficult.
I truly love most of my off the page creations... and then I took up coloring with Copics this year.. decisions, decisions! :)

#1 - Fairy House
I loved this upcycled prima box.. it still sits upon my mantle.

#2 - Tree hugger canvas
Made with acrylic paint, tissue paper, and moss.. I love how the branches wrap around to hug the heart. Made for the Paper Issues tree hugger linky party.

#3 - My very first canvas, it was made while struggling with direction and how to move forward after losing my mom.

#4 - Cherries canvas
I guess we can tell I like my mixed media work and TallyScrapper kits.

#5 - Coloring with Copics
I love Some Odd Girl images. <3

#6 - The turkey I made using Clear Scraps Acrylic Banner

#7 -  Acrylic layout and attached acrylic mini album using Clear Scraps product

#8 - Outplay layout

 This was so much fun. I took photos from my son's 5th birthday party at the park and used them to create the word play. the orange ribbon are suppose to be caterpillars. ;)
#9 - *tears*
I miss my mom greatly still to this day.
A tad over a year of her loss, and yet, It's almost been a year since I made this layout
and now I can truly look back 11 months ago and see that I have grown.
I have moved forward, as hard as that is.
I'm thankful I still don't feel the rawness this layout depicts.. but this was part of my past year, and I'm embracing that.

#10 - Paper BOO cubes photo holders
These were so fun to create.. and what better way to end my top 10 of the year with the faces of my sweet children in the image. :)

I'm linking up here

and here

Thanks for reminiscing over the past year with me!!
