Featured Designer over at Fancy Pants

Gulp, I am still beaming with excitement as I type this blog post.  The other day I opened my facebook to an invitation to the be Featured Designer in the July Newsletter over at Fancy Pants!  When they asked, I hesitated for effect and then replied with a definite YES!  Who wouldn't?  I have been a fan for sometime now and am completely honored with the challenge of providing TONS of information within 4 days:o)  Forget about grocery shopping and laundry, I have creating to do!

So folks, you can view the absolutely free eMag.....HERE!  
Plus you'll get to see my black and white face in their newsletter!

Here is a little peek at what they are featuring with my creations.  
You gotta go there for the rest!

The story told in this layout is precious.  The photo is even better.

Floatable Lego

Summer is flying by this year.  We have had a commitment every day since school let out. I have had very little time to scrapbook amongst all the company and traveling we have been doing.  Plus, each available sunny moment MUST be spent out by the pool.  With that said, I quickly created this page, just a couple days after taking the pictures.  This Lego is SOOOOOO  cool, it floats!  Of course the base of the Lego is one piece to allow for floating but the rest had to be built!

I created this layout starting with the triangle cutting on my Silhouette Cameo.  It was tricky but I recently took a class with Studio Calico that seriously walks you through step by step instructions.  It is very cool.  Even for people like me, with no extra time to spare!  Check it out HERE!

The papers come from my recent kit of the month with eclectic Paperie.  I may be biased because I select all the papers and embellishments but it really is a fun kit to be a apart of.  My friend from PA recently signed up and she is scrapping like crazy!  You can sign up HERE!

So, the other embellies that you see come  from Freckled Fawn - Oh Deer Me Kit of the Month.  I just am a buyer and hoarder of their kits!  The just provide you with little bits and pieces that help embellish you scrapbooking pages.  You can get that HERE!  I seriously should get paid for all of these commercials!

See those red and white candy buttons?  Those were part of the eP kit but they are produced by Queen & Company.  

"These Moments" was a printable that came with the class I am taking over at Studio Calico.

This was really fun to put together and really fun to share.  Hope you like it, come back again soon.

Crabs, Crabs and More Crabs

This fun crabby guy was so super cute, I used him over and over and over again.  This fun card is up over at The Rubber Cafe.  Head over to see how I put it together.

When I was traveling last year, Randy sent me this picture of Roman via text doing a hand heart with the biggest bottom lip ever!  I knew it was for effect but it still made it hard to be away.  Not that I am thrilled about having knee replacement, but it has kept me put for the meantime.  I love being home with my boys.  This is the first time in about 5 years that I have not traveled for the summer.  I thought that summers would last longer because we wouldn't be so busy.  WRONG!  I have something in my calendar for every day in July.  Summers are so short here in New England and the time certainly flies by.  

I loved this project life card by Pink Paislee that was included in my eclectic Paperie Kit of the Month.  It had the perfect sentiment except what was right on the top.  Since I have covered it, I can not remember what it actually said.  I like my title better anyway:o) Plus I needed to tie in a little o f the cream color.

Of course, I threw in a touch of flair from A Flair for Buttons.  Perfect color, perfect saying!

Thanks for taking a peek at my layout and my favorite guy.

See you all again real soon.
