Top 22 Projects for 2013

Starting this last year 2012,  I'm back again with my year-ender.

It's a summary of all what I think are my best projects for the whole year of 2013.
From papercrafter to my adaptation of digital crafts with hopes of keeping both paper and digital crafts in my reportoire.  And looking forward in 2014 to go back to more artworks or mixed media crafts for me to do - a project I started dabbling in, in 2012 but didn't really savor the whole mixed media atelier for me to carry on with any project.

Top LO Projects of mine:

a play with washi tapes on an LO

a play with Wilton baking supplies on my LO

mixed media LO

flowers and blings galore and
back to utilizing digital stamp embellishments

this is the very year that I got myself into Creative Teams to create digital layouts.  And I'm so glad to really be part of Crescent Moon Designs and Inspired by Dominic Designs.  Now, looking forward for a wonderful year next year with these 2 digital designers.  They've given me the opportunity to dabble and play with digital kits and have my family photos done and completed.  And most important of all, they gave me the boost to introduce freebies to the 3 communities I'm affiliated with.

Thank you so much, Moon and Tiffany!!  Hoping to keep this up with my community.

Top Digital LOs for the Year:
