Ali's challenge

This is Ali's challenge:
I want you all to post in your blogs 10 of your layouts. It doesn't matter if you've already uploaded them to your blog before - just think of it as giving us all a "refresher".

Now - these 10 layouts - they have to be a *certain* 10. I want to see the 10 layouts which are either:
(a) your favourite 10 layouts; or
(b) the 10 layouts that you're most proud of; or
(c) 10 layouts that have some really special significance*** ; or
(d) a combination of any of the above!***

I know that *all* our pages are special and signficant - but i'm referring to those layouts that really have that extra "meaning" to you...

What a great idea Ali. I'll upload 5 today and 5 tomorrow! Now some of these are pretty daggy because the styles have changed etc, but they are each special.
This first one is special because the beanie Annaliese is wearing is one my Nanna knitted for me when I was a little girl and the journalling talks about that and how much my Nanna would have loved to see another little blondie in the beanie!

This one is such a photographic journey of mine and Jason's lives together and is amazing how much we've changed over the years! I did this layout for the 'ASC Aus Idol final'.
I love the conversation with Shayla in this layout, as well as it's simplicity.


This one I love mainly because of the Ki Memories!LOL But also because the journalling is about what a special part my sister has played in the girls lives - we are so lucky that we all have such a close relationship!
My last one for today is this layout I did about sharing my b'day with my nephew Jack. I have hidden journalling on the tag that goes under the main photo which talks about how Jack was born on my b'day, just 10 days after I had had a silent miscarriage. I had such strong maternal feelings for Jack when he was born and I had wished he was mine. He's such a special boy to me!



The very thoughtful and kind Kell from Scrap Needs sent me these new MM foam stamps today as a b'day pressy and this gorgeous card that she made! Thanks so much Kell! I love them and can't wait to use them!

A funny thing happened (I can say it's funny now that I know they're safe!)I went looking for something to wear on the weekend and thought I'd put on my new clothes I bought just before we went to Kingscliff. I searched high and low for them, and then it dawned on me that I had actually left them at the Outrigger when we were staying there!LOL So the lovely Miss Erica has gone and collected them for me and will give them to me when we catch up next! Thank Erica!!!!
It also made me think about when I left my ball gown on the plane when I was going to ISC last year!LOL I'm not usually that hopeless!

Comments:
what a great challenge, and these LOs are all fantastic Chris, and each one is individually special!!

Lucky you, look at those stamps, I might have to get me some, you will have to use them and show us what you do!!!
 
Awwwwwwwwww Chris!!! Thanks for taking up my challenge!!!

These layouts are so far from daggy!!! They are *gorgeous*!!! I remember your double layout from ASC! Loved it then and still love it!
