This year has been filled with ups and downs.  It has been our second year to be a family of four, and with that there continues to be many adjustments.  Santiago and Paolina have grown up so much and have had so many milestones.  We have experienced more colds and flus than I prefer to dwell on.  We closed a business.  We decided to sell our house.  All of these things have left me little time to scrapbook and even less time to post on my blog.  Despite all that, I look back on this past year with many fond memories.  I also realize, upon taking inventory, that I actually completed quite a fair number of layouts...well over 100.  Not to mention making several mini albums, many many greeting cards, as well as my annual Christmas cards.  So to reflect back upon 2011 I thought I would post my very favorite 12 (in no particular order) projects completed this year.  

All but two of the above projects were for challenges over at Colorful Creations.  I truly love that site and can honestly say not only have I had fun with their challenges (and thus completed sooo many layouts), but I have also formed friendships with the amazing girls that run the site as well as fellow members.  So it's with great pleasure that I have joined the Colorful Creations blog sketch team.  Starting January of 2012 there will be some amazing sketches to work with every month and I hope you will visit and join in the fun!  I will have more details, as well as a sample of their first sketch of the year, posted tomorrow January 1st.

Happy New Year all!
