"What a Year" -either year in review or resolutions for Sweet Sassy Diva

So hard to believe it is 2012.  For the Sweet Sassy Diva Design Team Challenge this week we were to either make a project reviewing 2011 or  resolutions for 2012. Since I don't really do resolutions  I decided to make a scrapbook page reviewing 2011.  I wanted to share  how blessed I feel to have 3 sweet granddaughters. There is nothing better in the world right now than spending time with my sweet girls.  So for my page  I went through and picked some pics I liked  from the past year and printed them on my computer (which I believe is a 2 x 3 size.)  This was a lot  of fun and really brought back some memories.  For the background paper I used a sheet from  Tim Holtz Seasons Stack.  
By the way I got a new "good" camera for Christmas so hope my pictures will be better.  For now it is a learning process.  LOL
Here is the paper.  
Here is the collage I made.  
Then I cut out the title using my E2 and more Tim Holtz paper.  The Blessings title I found on Inspired Heart and I cut the title and the shadow at 2.4 so it would fit on the 12 " page.   I used Kate's ABC and cut 2011 at 1.5 page.    I taped the paper down with blue painters tape since my mat is really old.  
Next I took my chalks and chalked the edges of the shadow cuts as I didn't want the white edging to show.  
I also decided to add a little bling so I cut pieces from these beaded swirls 
This is what the title ended up looking like with the added beads.  I also cut pieces and added beads to the letters 2011 to make them stand out more.   
I hope you have enjoyed this project and will leave a comment.  Wishing you all a Happy, healthy, crafty 2012.  Please come back to Sweet Sassy Diva  all week to see the other projects the DT creates.
