Soooooooooo my idea of having the FAVE LO challenge was literally almost a last minute decision (I do that... LOL!!!) soooooooooooo Patri our GDT for December had all ready made a LO for this challenge (as it was supposed to be our December 30th challenge... lol lol lol... really I mess these girls up all the time... THANK GOODNESS they love me... *i hope* lol!!!) soooooooooooooo I have asked Patri to stay on for this challenge as our Guest!!! YAYYYYYYYYYYY!!!! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)  AND AND AND I am also right this very moment ... going to introduce U all to our JANUARY GDT!!!!! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOO HOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! I had the honor of meeting her in June at SISiversary and she is just the cutest thing ever!!! *love her* :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

Sooooooooooooo without further ado.... our January GDT is
Hi! I'm Jeannine Roe. I'm 28 years old and have been living in Nashville, TN for the last year and a half. I started scrapbooking about five years ago, due to the aid and encouragement of my longtime friend (and former college roomie) Bekka Bess. My big break, so to speak, was attending SISiversary 2009, where I was able to meet so many talented scrappers, learn new techniques, and really get inspired to do something meaningful with my photos. Each page I make is a learning experience, and I try to do something different every time. My goal this year is to learn to scrap faster, because I have several hundred photos from my travels abroad sitting in a box that I want to show people! I'm very happy to be able to contribute in a small way to TAAMOFT, and so pleased to be this month's guest designer. Thank you!
YAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY Jeannine!!!! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

And can I just say I wanna go over and hang out in her library????? *love it* :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)
