Yearly Look Back 2014

It is New Years' Eve!!!  Can you believe how quickly the year can go by? It seems like we are here too quickly sometimes.  This is a time when I enjoy taking a look back and reflecting on the fun crafting of the last year.  Here are some of the projects I loved this year and my goals for the new crafty year!

My Favorite projects of the year...
The Adventure Book autograph book I made for our Disney trip in October. My husband and I dressed as Carl & Ellie from UP for the Halloween party so our daughter agreed this would make a wonderful way to capture autographs. 
A close second place is this Hot Air Balloon Card I made.  I loved the papers so much and it went together so well. Here are some of the other cards I made this year that I really liked...

Recycle Challenge Jump Rope Bear, Good Witch or Bad Witch CardWhen Life Gives You Trouble & Just be You Mirror Card.

One other project I loved working on this year included 4 different projects in the end.
For my daughter's dance recital I created 2 different cards (yellowblue) for each dancer in her 2 classes and one for her teacher. I also created a gift bag and pocket page layout using the fun dancers I created using various pieces form the Create A Friend Cricut Cartridge.
Finally, I think I found a great balance between die-cuts and pocket scrapbooking this year. I like putting the two together and plan on working on my albums much more this coming year. Two layouts I really enjoyed are the Double page Science museum and a dance class review spread.

It was sort of a light crafting year for me.  I hate to say I lost my mojo, but for awhile it felt like I had. I am happy to report it is coming back and I am working on some fun projects to share with you soon. I hope to post at least twice a week this year and get back into my scrap-booking both with Project Life and classic styles.

Hope you have a wonderful start to your New Year!!  

Links to all the projects here are in the post above.  I so welcome your comments and hope you will continue to join me in 2015!!
