2015 Scrapbook Showcase, Part 1

So the card showcase is already up, let's take a look back at the year's scrapbook layouts!  I'm very proud to say I made a whopping 154 scrapbook pages this year, not counting the ones I did for baby books.  I have enough draft scrapbook posts to do Scrappy Mondays through June.  So let's take a look, shall we?

January's pick is this hot layout from Greece.  It's funny, I don't really do a lot of pages with red or orange page bases, but half of my showcase picks feature just that.  Anyway, I love the Tangelo Twist base on this page because it reminds me how stinkin' hot it was in Olympia that day.

February's pick is this hot pink layout from our last days in Okinawa.  I need more Melon Mambo in my life.

My pick for March is this birthday layout, and that baby girl is now six.  Even more exciting is that my friend Tiana will be here in just a few days!!!

I just couldn't choose only one layout for April, so the first April pick is this comic-inspired layout from when my family accidentally got involved in a drug bust in London.  They seriously love telling that story, and props to Mom for taking the pictures of it so I could make this layout.

My second April pick is this layout from China, and is the genesis for a longstanding joke between me and the hubs and our friends.  I'm not in love with my fried egg embellishments on here, but I love the golden arches and the story behind this one.

For May's pick, I went with a Melon Mambo layout once again and these gorgeous pictures from Santorini, Greece.  This was the very first time I used Tip Top Taupe too.

And to cap off the first half of the scrapbook showcase, June's pick is from that same cruise and the island of Capri.  I think I've already scrapped about half of that cruise and I love looking at all the pictures (and I seriously want to go back to Greece).

Happy New Year, y'all!  Next week's Scrappy Monday will be the second half of the scrapbook showcase, and then we'll get the new year started with some new stampy projects.  Cheers!
