Top 10 of 2013 Blog Hop & Giveaway

Welcome to the Top 10 of 2013 Blog Hop!

Twenty two fabulous scrapbookers and paper crafters have gathered together for a fun little blog hop to share with you some of our favorite layouts and projects from 2013. Scroll down to the bottom of my post to see the full list of participants and links to their blogs.

I'm going to tell you right now that my Top 10 turned into my Top 12. I was having a difficult time picking my favorites, so I attempted to make it easier on myself by picking one from each month of 2013. It is a combination of scrapbook layouts and home decor projects, both of which are my favorite things to create. For each of my projects, I have included a link back to the original post if you are interested in more details.

GIVEAWAY

To make this blog hop even more fun, I've also included an AWESOME GIVEAWAY that you can enter to win using the Rafflecopter widget below. Included in my prize package are products from Pebbles, Inc., Little Yellow Bicycle, Elle's Studio, Paper Smooches, Faber-Castell and Bella Blvd.

You will have until December 31, 2013 to play along for your chance to win my prize package. (I apologize, but this giveaway is only open to United States residents. If you live outside the United States and are willing to pay the shipping, let me know in the comments section below.)

  1. I think I would make a mini album for my daughter to take with her for her freshman year at college. The first 1/2 would have p ics of us and the kitty cats, then leave plenty of room for her to add things from her year.

  3. Your work always knocks my socks off Juliana! My favorite of all of these is actually the January layout! I almost gave up and did 13 (I mean it is 2013!!!) but just nailed it down to ten! Looking forward to the continued inspiration in 2014!

  6. Oh my goodness, these are all so eye-catching! I can see why you chose them as your favorites! If I absolutely HAD to choose a favorite, it would probably be the May layout - but that witch's hat is a really, really close second. Or maybe I like the witch's hat best and the layout second. They are ALL fantastic!
