Top Ten Blog Hop: Favorite Projects from 2014 + Giveaway!


Hello & welcome to the Top Ten of 2014 Blog Hop where a bunch of us are showcasing our favorite projects from the year!  You should be arriving here from Christine Meyer's blog or if you are just joining in the hop, you can start from the beginning at Juliana Michaels blog.  :)

I will admit that it was extremely hard for me to narrow it down to just 10 with cards and layouts combined (they're all my babies after all), but I know your time is valuable so I did my best and stuck to 10.  ;)

Project #1:  A Jillibean Cold Avocado Soup layout (previously shared HERE)

Project #2:  A Doodlebug Day To Day Father's Dress Shirt Card (previously shared HERE)



Project #3:  A Pebbles Americana 4th of July Layout (previously shared HERE)



Project #4:  A Doodlebug Sugar Coated Cardstock Bow & Gift Box (previously shared HERE)



Project #5: Doodlebug Happy Camper Layout (previously shared HERE)



Project #6: Doodlebug Day To Day Smart Chick shaped card (previously shared HERE)




Project #7: Hello Pumpkin shaped card (previously shared HERE)



Project #8: Doodlebug Friendly Forest Thankful Layout (previously shared HERE)



Project #9: Doodlebug Santa's Workshop Layout (previously shared HERE)



Project #10:  Doodlebug Frosty Friends Layout (previously shared HERE)




And since most of my favorite projects this year involved Doodlebug products, I thought I would put together a prize package for one lucky winner valued at just over $40.  See below for your 4 chances to win.  Contest closes on January 1st and the winner will be announced here on my blog by January 3rd.  :)



a Rafflecopter giveaway

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Make sure to check out all the other cool projects being shared in the hop.  By commenting on each of the blogs (by January 4th) you will also be entered to win a $75 gift certificate to Paper Issues.  The winner will be announced on the blog where the comment was made on January 5th.  Your next stop is Kelly Holbrook's Blog. :)
