I have seen lots of top 10 lists but I'm going to make a top 12 list of all my favourite layouts made this year. I have chosen one layout from each month I blogged. I want to thank all those who left me sweet comments which have encouraged me to keep going. I wish you all nothing but the best for 2012. May it be a year filled with love and creativity.
L'année se termine et j'ai décidé de parcourir mes postes de cette année et de choisir une création pour chaque mois.Merci à tous ceux qui ont laissé un commentaire. Chaque commentaire m'a fait tellement plaisir. Je vous souhaite une merveilleuse année 2012.












Getting ready for a New Year

27 December 2011

And what better way than to look back. Yet again I have come to the conclusion that time flies. This year has yet again been a wonderful one. A year seeing my boys grow and learn. A year full of new and challenging experiences for me. A year I will happily look back at. On the American Crafts blog my two last projects of the year were up yesterday both about the New Year.
As this blog is all about scrapbooking what better way to wrap up the year than with a layout and a card.
Une année passée, et je trouve qu'elle est passée à une vitesse incroyable. Une année de bonheur et de joie. J'espère que l'année à venir sera de même. Je termine avec une page et carte faite pour American Crafts!

Well, I am! I thought I would make something crafty to give to friends or family and came up with this. A little sweet something. I just love the red-green combo for Christmas. Traditional just does it for me. And who doesn't like receiving a little gift.

Crate paper love

19 December 2011

I just love Crate paper and the December Kit at My Scrapbook Nook was full of it. Just for fun I played along with the colour combo challenge on the Crate Paper blog and I love the way my page turned out! Layering, white space, thread,  a wee bit of misting,  all the things I really like at the moment. And to top it all it was featured on their blog.
J'adore Crate paper et le dernier kit de My Scrapbook Nook était rempli. J'ai décidé de m'amuser et de participer au challenge colour combo sur le blog de Crate paper. J'adore cette page. Beaucoup de "white space", un peu de mist et du fils. Tout ce que j'aime en ce moment! En plus ma page a été mise à l'honneur sur leur blog. Cela fait toujours plaisir! 

Have a great week! And don't forget to stop by at the My Scrapbook Nook blog for the Advent Calender!

Preparing for Christmas

17 December 2011

What better way to get in a Christmas mood than by making some Christmas decorations. I used lots of twine and also oodles of American Crafts Hollyday products. They are so cute and make crafting really easy. Loved making them. The only thing that took ages was plating the twine. But it looks good!

Things are really hectic and I have little to no time with all the correcting I'm having to do! I am taking pictures and writing my stories for my DD but have a printer problem. So I'm waiting to have enough pictures and will order them online next week. I did manage to get my first three days printed. And here they are:

Round two

10 December 2011

of Birthdays. 3 of my four kids have their birthdays in December. Robin on the 8th and Damien & Noé on the 10th. It's like running a marathon.  An extra post today to wish the biggest HAPPY BIRTHDAY ever to my 8 year old boys!
Aujourd'hui c'est l'anniversaire de mes deux grands. Ils ont huit ans. J'en reviens pas. Je les donne milles bisous et je leur souhaite que du bonheur. 
 Aren't they cute?!

8/12/2011 Happy Birthday Robin

My boy turned 5 on Thursday. I just can't believe how time flies. He is  very suborn, not patient at all and can't take no for an answer but at the same time he is so smart, really clever with words and can be ever so sweet. Happy Birthday Robin!

Jeudi Robin a eu ses 8 ans. C'est un garçon très vigoreux qui n'aime pas qu'on lui dit non mais il est très malin et drôle. Bon anniversaire mon loulou.
