Happy new year everyone!!! I'd like to wish everyone a great year ahead of us!!!

I have a lot of friends who have posted their top 10 favorite creations in their blogs, so I'm playing along. In no particular order, here are my top 10 for 2009. It was hard choosing (I initially have top 25, but figured it would crowd too much if I do it in just one posting LOL!!!) out of the 158 layouts I created last year (Whew!! My initial goal was 100 layouts!!!) as each layout has a story to tell.

So, here are my top 10 in no particular order:

Made this one as part of my GDT stint over at Little Shop of Sketches. Got my signature bold and bright style and my love for chipboards. ;o)

This is my first layout for All About Me. Took a giant step in applying as a DT as I struggle documenting stories about ME.

First time to get hold of Websters papers (I won them as a RAK!!!). While this is not the usual style that I scrap, I love how this one turned out (this won over at Urban Anthology).

Made this one as part of Magazine's Annual Star Contest last April. I still think this is the funniest layout I have ever made so far.

The only layout that I have framed in a shadowbox so far. Can you believe that this is actually made with Reminisce's Halloween papers? Never thought that halloween can be romantic too.

Brings back sweet memories from childhood - - haven't scrapped pictures of me when I was small. This is the closest one I made so far.

This one's cheesy but gotta feature the man behind my wings in a special layout.

Doodlings galore!!! Plus, I love my kiddos' pictures here!!!

This one was chosen as a fav over at One Little Word. Love how the paint play turned out here. LOL.

This is the simplest layout I have ever made (not much layering and embellies) but it's really special as it documents a personal battle.

So there. What do you think? LOL. Should you have posted your top favorites for 2009, please do comment here with a link so I can see yours too!!!

Happy New Year everyone!!!
