Don't you just love seeing year-end layouts in the galleries? For me, in a sense, it's like a "greatest hits" kind of page. It's where people put in the cutest photos that show the best expressions and write the journaling that highlight the most interesting moments of their children in the year. How can you not fall in love with that?

This also marks the first time I made an element-free page! Well, not exactly. :) I cut the papers to decorate the layout as elements anyway. I like the result and it helped to remind myself to put "just enough" in the page, keep it clean, and let the photos and journaling tell the story.
I'm also glad that people seem to like the page as well, as it was mentioned in both DigiShopTalk and ScrapMatters forums as a GSO (Gallery Standout!) Woohoo!!
