Emily Jane Creations

I've spent the last few years making invitations and announcements for various events for friends and family. I normally scan in all of my 'creations' and post them on my website here. My best friend Bethany, (the wonderful photographer who I thank for my fall pictures with Matthew which you can view here) suggested she take some pictures of my work and I was thrilled for the offer. I can't believe how much better these look on camera!!!!! I love them so much, I've spent so much time and energy on all of my invitations and I finally feel like I have something that shows them off!!! This is the first of MANY photographs to come!! Thank you Bethany for being my personal photographer!!!! You are so great at what you do!

Woot Woot!!!!!

I just wanted to say CONGRATULATIONS to Connor and Lindsey who are officially engaged!!!! It's seems like it's been a long time coming although they've only been dating for 6 months. They are PERFECT for each other and I am so happy for them!!! Wedding is set for December 29th in the Mount Timpanogos Temple. Lindsey has been such a great friend to me and we have been through a lot together. She truly deserves the best and I know Connor will give her just that. Hooray for best friends and weddings!

Jill's Baby Shower

Jill's baby shower was on Saturday during the Priesthood session of Conference. I was very stressed to prepare for this little event, as most of you know I am a perfectionist which usually comes through in most things I take on. Friday night and Saturday were spent preparing the food, the decorations and how everything would be set up. When all of it was said and done, I had a wonderful time!!!! My sister-in-law loved it and it couldn't have gone more smoothly! I hope you enjoy the pictures and I have to give props to Mauri and Julie Johnson for posting such cute pics of Julie's shower (I stole most of my ideas from you, although my mother-in-law came up with the Diaper Cake idea all on her own!)


Mother-in-law asked if I'd make some scrapbook pages for people to sign at my Sister-in-law's baby shower this weekend. She thought we should go with the same colors that were used on the invitations I made a few weeks ago for this event. I was pretty stressed out with all of the planning of the food, decorations and what not, so my great friend Bethany came over in my time of need and helped me with the scrapbook pages. They are adorable thanks to her!!!!! (I can do announcements and invitations all day long, but I'm not a big fan of scrapbooking in general). Thanks Bethany, I couldn't have gotten these pages done without you! :) Enjoy!
