A Year In Review

                                                     

      Karin's blog  With an "i" for Paper blog  has started a Year in Review Blog Hop to feature some of your favorite projects from the past year.  Being I only started my blog at the end of June, my review is a half year featuring a card from the months June through December along with a Halloween & Thanksgiving card & 3 of my favorites. (for a total of  12).  I notice that in the beginning my photos were not of the best quality.

          June--My first posted card

July-- Dress Inspiration



August-Bloom Builder #3


September-- Special Card for a Special Daughter



October


Halloween



November


Thanksgiving


December


 My favorites





     Thanks for stopping by. I hope you'll join in the fun.
