Critter Challenge #44 - No Patterned Paper!

No Patterned Paper

My layout.... Kraft cardstock, Coredinations cardstock, DMC Floss for the stitching (thanks mom for finishing it for me.. I started it and quickly learned that my hand just doesn't have the capacity to do stuff like that anymore). The font I think is Lyrical Letters.

December's fabulous monthly sponsor..........

Don't forget to check out their freebie for the week posted every Friday... this week's is super hilarious.. I'm going to make one of them into a card for my boys... they'll get a good laugh!

First Football Practice

This is a quick and easy layout of my youngest's first football practice.

Basketball LOTW Layout

I got addicted to these LOTW swaps. LOTW stands for Letter Of The Word... I literally did over 1000 different letters for all sorts of words. I haven't used many of them because I got SOOOO sick of seeing them. I have made a promise to myself to get using them though.. so here is a basketball layout for Carsyn. He took part in a Basketball camp over Spring Break.

More Christmas Swaps...

More quick and easy swap pages..... One thing I love about swaps is how fast you can get pictures onto a page. They go together so quick and easy and you feel so accomplished!

Here is my hubby catching a cat nap after a yummy Christmas dinner.

Uncle Bob teaching Dougie how to play his new guitar.

This was supposed to be a two page border set... but I turned it into one. I love that Peace & Joy & Love cut out!
I always seem to include a picture of the cat of the house. Here Callie (RIP) is making sure she gets her photo taken.
My husband's cousins always come up on Boxing Day.

Christmas Swap Pages

When I first started swapping on Splitcoast.. I joined a Christmas swap... I got back a ton of great pages, and border sets. For the next few days I'll be sharing these swaps. If you created them, please let me know and I'll be more than happy to give you credit.

This was from my hubby and I's first Christmas in our own house.

Pictures of my nieces on my husband's side of the family.

One of our nieces... and two cousins! I really love this page!!

My brother in law surprised my mother in law with a gorgeous ring. She was so shocked!

Coward Family Christmas Tree 2010

Here is the Coward family Christmas tree for 2010.

I just love our tree.. I love that the ornaments all mean something special to us. They may not match.. but the match us. We have soccer balls, footballs, hockey pucks, police dogs, ambulances, teacher themed, penguins etc.

We all pick an ornament to put on the tree first.

Butch went first and put Shrek and Fiona... we dressed up as Shrek and Fiona for Halloween one year... and we've likened ourselves to them ever since!

Next I went.. and I love this little ornament that my mom bought us the first year we were together.

Up next was Brayden.. this year he chose to put his Canuck's snowman up... the boy loves his hockey!

And last.. but certainly not least was Carsyn... who.. with no surprise put the football ornament that he got last year on the tree.
