The Beary Scrap Year in Review

It has been such a fun year, here at the Beary Scrap! We have really loved sharing our creations with you and seeing your cards and layouts as well! I think we have all "grown" in our styles, and that has been inspiring to see the evolution of artists.

We decided to share our favorite project of the year - and our favorites from the other team members (such hard choices!)

When I began this DT, I was really a die-hard card maker. In the past several months, I have been having so much fun with layouts (Maybe because it's just a bigger canvas to work on!) I was really having a hard time deciding between two layouts - this one, and the one that Susan chose as her favorite yesterday - So I thought I would share this one with you today!

Now, the really tough part - narrowing down just one project from my DT Sisters! They are all so talented - I should just link to their blogs and say I love it all!

For Jamie, I chose this layout that she did for a color challenge.

Jamie always brings a sense of whimsy to her creations - They are always fun. I love seeing the pictures of her beautiful family on her layouts - and don't you think that Owen the Owl was just made for this paper? Jamie is so sweet and thoughtful and I have been so blessed to be on this team with her!

I was really torn on which project to pick for Patricia, but in the end I chose one of her Tear Bear Creations - because, let's just face it - she rocks those! Girl, some of your projects must take days and days to complete, but they are always well worth it - and I really enjoy seeing what you do with them!

And now Susan - I don't think you have ever made a project that I have'nt loved. Your vintage style, your attention to detail - it always makes for such stunning cards. You do such amazing things with Magnolia's - so I knew I would pick one of those.

To me, this best represents your vintage style. Your layering is superb and your coloring just makes me say, ahhhhh! The hidden tag on this one was one of those little surprises that you through in to see if we are paying attention (and yes, we are!).

Elise is no longer on TBS DT, but we all still love her and are always inspired by her work. There is always such an attention to detail and little extra surprises along the way!

Kimm, thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to be a part of this wonderful, little family! You are always so sweet and generous with us - and I am really blessed.

We are looking forward to what 2011 holds in store for us and look forward to you being a part of it with us.

Hiya Gini! How funny that we both selected layouts for you! I do love this one so much - from the tattered scalloped edges to those fabulous hand crafted flowers. Oh my! (And you and Lori aren't bad either! *mwah*)

Thanks for your kind words. It's nice to see one's own work through a peer's eyes. I kind of forgot about this one with the tag... I do love it and gives me a new idea for another project in 2011. Thanks!

Gini, great choices! I think this may have been my favorite layout of mine too! But looking back at everyone's projects, it has been so hard to choose!
