PaperArtsy Review of the Year Part 2

Hello all!  I hope you are enjoying a peaceful and merry festive season, and that there are plenty of happy smiles and twinkling eyes round your way.

You can probably tell from the post title that I'm back at PaperArtsy today with another Christmas treat... a second round of fantastic highlights to share.  They're all drawn from the wealth of inspirational projects shared on the PaperArtsy blog throughout 2018, both by the PaperArtsy design troupe and by the challenge entrants.   (You may well have missed the first of my review posts as it went live on Christmas Day - and the rest of the year's topics are being covered by others, so make sure you collect the full set!)

The themes I'm covering this time around are numbers 17 - 21, which took us from the end of September to the start of December.  So that includes the Box of Eggs colour challenge, the Stamping Platform techniques challenge, Tissue Paper, Foiling and Matchbox Art.

There are so many great projects to enjoy, whether you're seeing them for the first time, or reminding yourself of forgotten treats, so I hope you'll have time to hop over and check it all out.  And of course I hope you'll continue to enjoy the 12 Days of Christmas, whatever you're up to.

When I'm inspired I get excited, because I can't wait to see what I'll come up with next.

Alison, I wanted to thank you for the heartwarming wishes you left me today and to wish you a healthy, safe, and joyful new year to you and your loved ones. I hope you have a productive 2019, too.

You mentioned you had not seen all my AJJ entries this month. I have one more post I'll be sharing this afternoon (my time) where I share every one I made this month. Hope you have a chance to stop by and see the ones you missed.

I've really enjoyed getting to know you this month and SO admire your beautiful art. You also share a great back story with each entry, too. Thanks for being so supportive of AJJ this month, dear.
