New Fancy Pants lines.....

so i just got my box yesterday with the new releases from Fancy Pants. One is called 'Artic Chill' and has some great colors for winter pictures. The other is 'Splendid' the Valentine Line. I had just printed the perfect picture for these papers so i stayed up late again and played! Here is the layout i did with 'Splendid' - go check out the Fancy Pants Blog for sneaks of the rest of the paper and goodies that go with it! I'm just realizing my last layout has the same title! Oh well - its true! I love them!

Well - today is day 5 that Dean has been gone - i'm honestly about ready to hit FREAK OUT mode. This has been a long one. Didn't help that Mas was out of School sick and then no school thursday and friday for UEA - but mama has had it. I'm ready for him to get home already. I havn't even accomplished any packing because i havn't felt good myself. He did shoot a 'once in a lifetime' deer, so he's pretty happy - we can't wait to see it.

Hope everyone has a great weekend! I'm going to attempt taking the kids to the pumpkin patch by myself to get some pictures, we will see if i have the energy or the patience to get it done.

To Do's

my list is a mile long right now and i can't do much about it. It's driving me crazy. Dean is out of town all week hunting - and i'm stuck home with sick kids. Some kind of flu bug - mason has had it since saturday and today Ethan and Baylee got it. Soooooooooo i can't leave my house and there is no school Thursday or Friday. I think i might go crazy! I just hope i don't get it. I've tried to start packing (not doing well) but i did get my dress and more luggage. Now waiting for our costumes to come in the mail. I need to make some serious lists so i can be organized about it.

I stayed up way to late last night to get some Fancy Pants projects done last night. Can i just say how much I LOVE thier stuff - not that i'm partial or anything - but seriously - they have great product. This first layout - is so ARtsy Fartsy - and i used all FP product. It was totally inspired by Dina Wakely - i just drool over her projects - she brings the out the artsy side of me - when normally i'm more of a cutsey (not a word is it?) scrapper - but she is always using the spray inks and glimmer mists - so i gave it a try - loved the outcome - i used the Fancy Pants chipboard letters as a mask and removed them after spraying - then traced the edges with a black pen. And the glitter cuts from FP this time around are to die for. Mostly the 'Daily Grind' line here.

This is a line from winter CHA - but i still love it - its Daydreams - and love these pictures of mason trying to get a kiss from his baby sister!The card is mostly the 'All Fall' line. The flower and tab are diecuts and the the buttons are from this line too. The red paper is from 'Daily Grind'

Thanks for taking a peek. I guess i better get to my lists of things that i need to do. They aren't going to mark themselves off - right? Have a good weekend - i might get one more post in before the trip - depends on how busy it gets!

Oh - i did have an unwind weekend with some girlfriends this last weekend - went to Wolf Creek lodge and did nothing but watch movies and eat alot of junk. It was perfect - just what i need to get me through the next few weeks!

Rub ons

who loves them? ME! i kinda went a little crazy - but the new challenge over at Method Playground is to use LOTS of rubons on the same layout. I have 4 different manufacturer's rub ons on this layout! Love this picture of Baylees little girly attitude and this yummy PINK GLITTER paper from SEI! I did some fussy cutting (total Becky term) and this is what we ended up with. Go check out the MP blog to see the other girls layouts and join in the challenge.

A little bit excited about this news - I was selected to be one of the guest Dream girls for Dream street papers this last week for 2009. Check out thier blog to see the other girls on the list - i'm lucky to be included in such a talented list of girls - not sure which month i will be doing yet - but can't wait.

Okay - so i don't remember if i told you we are taking the kids on a disney cruise at the end of the month - but we told them on Sunday and they are so excited - like are you serious we aren't going camping excited. That is usually the extent of our vacationing around here so we are definatley going to be out of our element. I'm really excited but getting kinda freaked out. The whole packing thing and flying with the kids. We will be gone over Halloween so i have to pack costumes and everything. I'm sure it will all work out and i will be excited when we get there - but not so much right now.

Thanks for stopping by............hope you have a great day!
