Our GDT Annette's Fave Pastime is reading bed time stories to her daughter!! Here is what Annette has to say...."I just found a pile of the little Critter Books in my daughters room which she just found again.
We had so much fun reading those books to her that I just took a picture and made this LO so I will remember this special time forever!!" .... I loveeeeeeeeeee those books! I used to read those to my son when he was little and now I read them to my daughter too!!

I really never thought I would be "good" at card making, if you would have asked me a year ago, I would have told you that I only BUY store cards! LOL! But lately, I have really gotten into it and I am loving it!! And my other Fave Pastime is taking photos!! I just got a new camera...and I have bought two books on how to work it and the different things I can do with it...and I am LOVING it!! Soooooooooo there you have it.. my Fave Pastimes is Card Making and Taking Photos! :):):) :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)


So, there you have it.. our Fave Pastimes... and now its your turn!! You can make a card, a layout, a mini album, an altered item... anything at all that you want to make, as long as it has to do with your FAVE PASTIME!!  :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)
