January ATC Swap

After parting ways with MAS I decided that I just cant stop swapping! I love it... So, I decided to swap at yourpaperpantry.ning.com

There is a small fee each year, but it is so worth it! 

This month they have an ATC swap and the theme is all about me...Creating ATC's that resemble us. 

Here is mine:
I am a fanatic of roses...I love to make them.....I am LDS, so I put the temple in the background. I love to hear people speak in other languages... I am always trying to get my husband to...but...he doesn't play along well.  Tim Holtz...inspires me so much...so I used several of his techniques.... I used perfect pearls and a minimister to spray the white portion...I used distress ink to color everything. 

I hope that YPP loves me!

Dad Freeman's Planner

Final Christmas Present Done!!!! I know I am a day late...but they are awfully nice presents ;-)

Here is the final planner that I made for my father-in-law. He is into history and I thought my Tim Holtz inspired planner would suit him well!

I hope he feels privileged....I never use any of my Tim stuff on give-away items... I am too afraid of them being thrown out... I save them for really special times...and my father-in-law is very special to us!


Presque Isle

I was clearing pictures off my camera and found these pictures! I wish I would have cleaned off the camera a month ago....I would have included them on our Christmas Card. There is always next year I guess. 


Mark's Parents and Sister came for a visit in June after school got out. We missed them so much and we know they missed Mark and me!


They spent three weeks with us and we went on some adventures...When they vacation they do not take any down time....I think that when they go home they need a vacation from their vacation. They are always on the run!


Here are our pictures at Presque Isle, Erie, Pennsylvania.





Christmas with the Freeman's

Christmas Eve was spent playing Mario and opening presents with my dad Lance and sister Tarah.


Christmas Day we got to talk to Mark's parents on the phone and open presents! They got me a sewing machine! I cant wait to start making some awesome layouts with it. Thanks mom & dad you are the best. 

After we got ready we headed over to my grandparents house and had the best traditional Christmas dinner ever.  Grandma Carol's stuffing is to die for! It wasn't the same this year as Uncle Drew had the flu and couldn't be there. We missed him! My dad gave me some cash to spend in a scrapbooking store....Ohhhhhhh, he knows me so well!

I was the photographer...I forgot to hand the camera to Mark in order to get some shots of me.....hmmmmm.....I hope I remember next year. 

Mark went to JoAnn's and got me some awesome paper and embellishments. He picks out the best items. I got a lot of Basic Grey! I cant wait to create something awesome with them.

Anna's Planner

My Sister-In-Law is in college and I just got this discontinued Close To My Heart Paper pack... I thought it was perfect for a college-going chick!

Mark agreed and so...I got started and made her this calendar...to carry on family tradition.
