This is an easy one since you don't have to make anything new

Go to your gallery, review what you made in 2013, pick your favorite project and post it here and let the rest of us enjoy your fabulousness

I love going through my projects and see what I've made in the past, but I rarely do it unless I'm showing someone else something so this is a chance to go back and love our work a little more.

1 project per player (can be what ever, card, LO, other stuff, just as long as you posted it here in 2013)
Post until January 15th
Vote for your top 3 projects, and get a vote for voting, by pm to me 16-18th and I'll set up a poll with the top projects and we'll vote a winner which gets a RAK from my stash.

Alright, who's in?

Here is an example from me, I think this is my favourite from my 2013 projects, I created this in May 2013:

Do you just repost. I have a similar challenge that I am hosting which is January Your Own Favorite work where you make a layout of your favorites. This sounds like fun too but let me know if you just repost.

You just repost.

You go through your gallery and choose your favourite LO from 2013 and let the rest of us admire it to It's just "a best of 2013" thread, no making new ones.

Hope it doesn't cross your challenge, if it does, I'll take this one down.

I looked through my gallery and I think this is my favorite LO of 2013. I put so much time and thought into the opening LO of my brother & SIL's Alaskan Cruise album. Making miniture shaped state that look like the state flags & the globe w/ mini pics from their cruise.

I'm in! Great idea/challenge as it gives us a chance to look back on 2013.

This is one of my all time favorite LOs. First, I had not been scrapbooking for about 1 1/2 years. I had lost my mojo. Then I did this page and I was hooked again. The picture, well, my girls thought I was dumb for asking them to take it this way,(hence the expression on their faces) but it turned out to be one of our favorite Christmas pictures from 2012. Then I scrapped it, and it really got me back into my scrapbooking mojo. And I am thankful for that because when I am scrapbooking, I am in my happy place. (and now that I am saying this, I think I've found my topic for my BOM challenge, LOL)

I totally agree! That's what I love about this, it's a "Best of" from our work from a whole year, and I love to read all the various reasons you chose the projects you all have submitted because we love our work for so many different reasons, that may not always be obvious to the rest, and we get to appreciate each other work for those reasons to

Sometimes we simply outdone ourselves and did an unexpectedly awesome LO (you all know what I'm talking about, sometimes nothing works, sometimes all the stuff just clicks), sometimes we know we challenged ourselves, tried something new, learned a new technique or something, sometimes we did something sentimental or something special for us, sometimes we did something funny or sometimes there is just no reason, something is more awesome than the rest of the stuff we do

I love all the LOs so far, thanks for submitting and keep them coming!

I've updated the first post with the submissions so far

this was mine I think.

For creativity purposes - I think it is my fave digital layout I have ever done

For meaningful purposes - my husband has been my rock through the first few years of our marriage as I have been ill and I had found out just before leaving on this trip that I would need more surgery. He never lets me go it alone.

Tammy, if you get a brick tmeplate, buy the 12 x 12. I bought the 6 x 6 and it is a pain in the you know what to keep moving it into the four quadrants. Things just don't line up.

Hey everyone.

ACU. You would think that since I've only been in SB 1 year that my fav would be easy - NOT.

So I'm going to have to do a point comparison using these categories - It Just Came Together, Happy Smiles/Laughs, Melancholy Moments, Are We There Yet (it needed just one more thing), Back Story, I Can't Believe It Looks So Good, Subject Matter---Hey anyone got a Mood Ring I can borrow so I can gauge Emotional Attachment??

At least I'm down to 4 and will just have to sleep on it!!

Here's mine. It's my fave for many reasons.
I love the photo of my maternal grandparents (I have so few). I initially started scrapping to preserve my family's history. I inherited a few old family photos from my parents but unfortunately they were in bad shape and most had no dates or names on them. I became determined (obsessed)to leave my dd a family history.
Also, I struggle with flowers and placement. This particular lo I actually liked the flower placement. tfl.

So it's down to Pushed me out of my box, Expand my techniques, or Sentimental Journey...

This one is my absolute favorite. After trying for years to have a baby, my brother and his wife welcomed their daughter Ava this past April. This picture was taken shortly after she was born. My brother has always been this "tough, stoic" man, but Ava melted him all the way through!

Pure Adoration By Denayc

I loved going back through 2013's layouts and seeing the differently techniques used and remembering the different challenges that helped create them.

OMG!!! Ladies you have done some amazing creations and thank you for sharing and inspiring us!

I'm finally biting the bullet and selected my top favorite! I want to thank everyone for all their views and comments! This met all three of my criteria - Pushed me out of my box with all the distressing layers, Expand my techniques with the embossing and ink blending, and Sentimental Journey was remembering waiting for the monthly National Geographic Magazine and TV Specials and dreaming of being on archeology digs with Dr. Louis Leakey or exploring the culture of "lost" civilizations with Dr. Margaret Mead on her sociology/anthropology research.

Most importantly, this lo represents the many ancient cultures participating in traditions that go back thousands of years and have disappeared in the name of progress because of a chance meeting.

So I scrap to preserve and share history and our traditions and create my own version of Encyclopedia Britannica!
