Nine favorites of 2009...

Last year I posted 8 of my favorite creations that I had done in 2008, and since I don't have anything new to share with you right now (I've been busy designing for the Craft and Hobby show in California this week), I thought I'd TRY to choose 9 of my favorites from the year! Please feel free to do this also, and link me to your favorite creations of the year that you've made! I would love to see them!
1.
Baby Topiary made for Dream Street.
I covered these empty ribbon spools with patterned paper,
and was so proud of myself for thinking up this wacky idea. lol
2.
Destination Home. This one really speaks for itself. My husband works an hour from home, so the girls are thrilled to see him when he gets back each day. I love this pic and the natural elements of the page.
3.
Baby Hanger.
Who can resist pink and babies?
I can't believe it's been 4 years since Kati was that small.
4.
The Greatest Love (being a mother).
The little tags open up and I wrote the girls each a note to read when they get older.
Love this technique on the top tag....
5.
1.2.3. Whee! These photos still crack me up! Such cute expressions.
Man, her hair was so curly and out of control when it was short! She makes me laugh every day.
6.
Fairy in Flight. She's still making me laugh...putting a spell on me. I don't know....something about this page makes me happy!
7.
Grateful.
Love the contrast to this page, and of course the family photos!
Never did I think 10 years ago that I'd be so lucky to have all of this.
8.
Moving Up. I just adore this page, it's shabby yet colorful at the same time, right up my alley.
Taylor is one cute girl and so smart. Don't forget sassy! I love her spunk - she looks so innocent in this picture and I wish she could stay that way forever.
9.
I Exist to Cre-8. This one was straight from the heart, just doing what I love!
Be sure to share YOUR 9 faves with me! Now go and CRE-8 something special for someone you love, or something just for yourself!

Loved looking at some of your favorites and most greatest projects from the year, Dani! They are all wonderful and I can see why they are all your favorites. The baby hanger with the frames is pure sweet as sugar fabulicious! And I never saw the destination home page before but it's awesome!
