Wrapping up 2016

Hey everyone, 2016 is quickly coming to a close.  It's been quite a year for me, as I'm sure it has been for you too!  It was a year of extreme highs and crushing lows.  It was a year where started a great many journeys, where I went from barely even stepping foot inside my craft room to being on some fantastic design teams and starting my own YouTube channel.  It's also been a year when my depression reared it's ugly head and I am still working on managing it as best I can, in whatever therapeutic ways I could find, as well as realizing when it was time to reach out for help.  I decided this year to try and be happier with myself and happier with what my life is offering right now.  As always it's a work in progress, but by being vocal about it I feel I've gained so many kindred spirits!

So in wrapping up this year and moving forward to the next I have created my favorite 16 of 2016.  Below I'm showcasing 16 of my personal favorite layouts that I've created over the year.  Some of them are from design teams and some are ones that I created just for myself, but they are all ones that I am especially proud of!

Let it Snow - Freebie Printable

Didn't think I'd be back so soon did ya?  Well I'm back, but not with another layout or process video, but with a special gift for all of you.  So before I was scrapbooker I was an designer and illustrator.  After a while I stopped drawing and creating, and moved on to other hobbies.  It's been at least 2 years since I actively sketched or worked on a piece, but just recently I have had the motivation to create again, so I started with a cute printable!  Since it's so snowy where I am right now I created a cute snow kitten.  She is in 5x7 format, but can be scaled down to 3x4 to make a cute Project Life card.  Click on the picture to download her!
