Books Read in 2012

Completed this pages last night. So, these are almost all the books I read in 2012. I didn't add any of the smutty books read, which were many. I'm keeping those titles to myself.
I used Amanda Heinmann "these words" kit and Cathy Zielske's Template No 23, the never list.

A few of my very favorites this year have nice little pictures of the covers. These are must reads people. Must reads I tell you.

Product Details

I have been reading the awesomely, wonderful beautiful read and finished it up last night. Let me just say the Colleen Hoover has hit it out of the freakin' park for the third time. I'm not sure how she topped Slammed and Point of Retreat, but she sure as hell did.
What's this book about you ask?  Here's the little blurb from Amazon:

"Sometimes discovering the truth can leave you more hopeless than believing the lies...

That's what Sky realizes after she meets Dean Holder. A guy with a reputation that rivals her own and an uncanny ability to invoke feelings in her she's never had before. He terrifies her and captivates her all in the span of one encounter, and something about the way he makes her feel sparks buried memories from a past she wishes could just stay buried.

Sky struggles to keep him at a distance knowing he's nothing but trouble, but Holder insists on learning everything about her. After finally caving to his unwavering pursuit, Sky soon finds that Holder isn't at all who he's been claiming to be. When the secrets he's been keeping are finally revealed, every single facet of Sky's life will change forever.

When they say that every single facet of Sky's life will change forever, boy do they mean it. This book hooked me from the very beginning. Lots of times books need to find their rhythm and cadence, but Hopeless started out strong.
I was sitting on the couch last night when I got to a major turning point in the story. I sat up and told my husband, "This shit just got interesting."
One thing I loved in the book was the reference to The Sea of Tranquility. What's that you ask? Well, it is something in the stars, but it is also a most wonderful, exceptional, on my top reads of the year if not ever book I read. Every single word that each of these authors wrote were absolutely amazing and well thought out.
I wish I could give them more accolades and shout it from the rooftops that everyone read this book.....and The Sea of Tranquility. Please do us and yourself a favor and go buy this book.

I got two digital layouts done today? No freakin' way. This page is part of a challenge from One Little Bird Designs. I used her free layout (for a limited time) and most of the papers/elements are from her Epic collaboration. I did use the Polar Grid Stamp overlay from her Narrative line. I felt like this layout screamed for it to be on it. 

Magic The Gathering

Worked on this lovely little gem today. I think this may be my favorite layout to date. Supplies used are One Little Bird: Narrative kit & Shadows and Darcy Baldwin/Megan Mullens: 100 days of Summer template.
