Top Ten of 2010



I'm sure you know the old saying--if everyone jumps off a bridge, are you jumping, too?

Well, in the case of scrapbooking, the answer is yes!

I have been admiring "top ten of 2010" posts around the WWW, so I figured I'd try my hand at one myself. I didn't include some favorites that are out for publication (although it's always refreshing when a favorite gets picked up!) or some new faves that I can't share yet.

So, without further ado (and in no particular order), my top ten:
This layout is a helpful one to have--it reminds me what REALLY defines me and what doesn't. And since I'm the sort of person that gets muddled with these things sometimes, the visual reminder that certain things matter and certain things don't is meaningful to me.

This one is just fun and funky, but I love it--the stamp (gotta use those stamps more!), the alphabet, the sticker. I just like this one:)

And it's a two pager! Love this so much. It was one of the first layouts I made that scrapbooked my story in a "different" way--beyond "we went to the zoo and it was so much fun" (although I love those layouts, too!).

I love simple, central designs. I lifted the heart with buttons idea from Celine Navarro--loved it! This layout records such a special memory for me, so it always tears me up.

I had a BLAST creating these flowers--it brought back the fun of scrapping for me after a slump. So I will always love it for that, and because it looks like a corsage necklace on a layout!

This is one of the many "scrapbooking as therapy for infertility" layouts I've created. Since I just saw an infertility support group with a NINETY dollar registration fee, I'm more convinced than ever that this method is more fun--not to mention cost-effective! :)

This one is about Post-its. And if you know me, you know I lurve Post-Its. It's like a sickness. Except I don't choose to see it that way.

I used actual post-its on this layout for a fun twist. Which reminds me, I'm out of that cute little size.......

This one took a good amount of time to make, but I was on an inspiration high and loved it! I was also super honored when Susan Weinroth lifted it for the Studio Calico gallery.



I rarely use dark backgrounds on my layouts, and I don't know why! I love the contrast they provide. Love the colors on this layout (go Back 40 kit!) and the journaling is really moving to me.

And it's back to the therapy chair again! Love this one not only because of the journaling, but because of how the design makes me feel. The pinks, blues and greens are calming and I feel hopeful for the future just looking at this.

I've come across some wonderful Top Ten posts here, here and here.

  9. I love your top 10 layouts. What I really love about them are that they are so personal. Thank you for sharing them with us all.

    I did my top 12 projects on my bog. It was hard to pick just 10, 12 was hard enough.

  17. My all time favorite one is the "heart breaking" one. So perfect and touching. :)
    Happy New Year!

  18. Love all these Keshet. Especially since I only started "following" you recently, I got to see some from "before". I have two faves, both of which I've scraplifted (when your heart breaks and on this day) already, but really they are all smashing.
    And I am completely with you on scrapbooking as therapy. Much cheaper and much more fun!
