I'm joining in with a number of scrapper friends today for a blog hop review of our top ten favorite layouts from 2013 (please see the end of this post for the blop hop list). I'm deviating from that just a bit and posting 13 since the year 2013 is coming to a close.

1. Take Note

2. A Master{Piece}

3. Soaring to Brand New Heights

4. Always There for Me

5. You Are Off to Seventh Grade

6. Bucket List at Eleven

7. It's a Bad Case of Stripes

8. Baby I'm a Star

9. Every Summer Has a Story

10. Generations

11. A Well Crafted Halloween

12. Turning 12 (I know I said no particular order, but how could I resist putting a layout with the number 12 in the title in the number 12 spot?)

13. This is What Life is All About

  3. These are wonderful! I think I like your Master (Piece) layout the best simply because I love how the bright colors contrast so nicely with your dark background! And I love that I am not the only one who deviated a little from including 10 projects - LOL!

  7. These are just spectacular. Very hard to choose a favorite. I love #1 for the pure creativity in looking at that notebook paper and doing THAT with it. Genius. I really love the bold colors of Turning 12 and a Bad Case of Stripes. Those two are so striking. Bucket List is so soothing. Love how you used the pops of black to ground the page. They are all wonderful. You had a super creative year!
