FAVORITES: The Best of 2012
 
Happy 2013! http://www.smileygarden.de/smilie/Si...ester_sekt.gif
Welcome to our champagne gala, where we are toasting our top nominations for 2012. Instead of our normal Favorites thread, this week we are doing a year-end retrospective of the best our SCS Gallery has to offer. Everyone can contribute; check my next post for directions.

Thanks in advance to our full team of volunteers. They are giving up some holiday time with their families to help with all the notifications: Mary (jandjccc), Shellie (shellied), Linda (Holstein), Elaine (ChaosMom), Vicki (vdm), and Brenda (tessaduck). Also, please welcome Stacy (JBgreendawn), who will be providing extra support this week.

With over 186,000 gallery uploads in 2012, it was a real challenge to narrow it down to a single list. Here are some of my favorite Favorites of the entire year.

Thanks to Kathleen for choosing Anchor as a (gasp! Best of 2012!) favorite, and Peggy (Jasonw1) for choosing Anniversary. Both were tender to make and sweet to send... Honored, and humbled.

Thanks, all, for the birthday greetings. (TeeHee)
