Fancy Pants mixed media books

So thought i better get that depressing post off and move on to some funner happier things. The kids are feeling much better and we all came out of our slump alive! I'm in a much better mood - even though i did snow over a foot here 2 days ago. But today the sun is shining, my fridge is full (just went shopping), Kids are healthy and we have a few fun things coming up in the next few weeks to keep our minds occupied. This coming Monday my oldest turns 8. I can't even believe i'm going to have an 8 year old - that means im getting old!! So i'm looking forward to that - he things he's dragging us to Chucky Cheese! Never been...........! Then The following saturday the 28th he will be getting baptized - so proud of him for making that decision. Then the next week we are leaving for St. George! Dean is doing a Mountain bike race down there on the 7th of March and we've rented a condo. I seriously can't wait - hope its warm down there then. Then after that Spring should be right around the corner right???

So here is a book i did for CHA - i used the new 8x8 mixed media books from Fancy Pants. So awesome - each shape - there are 4 i think - comes with different textures to play with. Acrylic, Chipboard and felt - i used all three in this mini i did about Ethan. The paper is from the On a Whimsey line which seems to be getting most of my attention. The chipboard is from the new 6x6 chipboard sets. Thanks for peeking!
Now off to bake some yummy cookies - I probably bake cookies once a week, but i make sure i save enough for the kids then i give the rest away - i would eat them all if i kept them around - i just need the cookie dough fix then i'm good!

I do the SAME THING with the cookies. I bake them weekly and give most of them away. Too funny you do the same thing.
