I'm Fancy!

Wow, did I wake up to some good news yesterday! I had an e-mail in my inbox from Jodi, the founder and co-owner of Fancy Pants Designs, telling me what was just announced on the Fancy Pants blog:


Our NEW Team!
Well, I'm (Jodi) here in Florida following our fun HSN experience...wow...it is much harder than I thought! Don't forget to check out all of the great kits we offered on HSN.com!

Anyway, I have heard from all but one of our chosen NEW team members, so I've decided to go ahead and announce without that person. Hopefully we will hear back from them soon! We'll be posting bios and pics of our new team to our website next week. We will also contact the 'runner up' scrapbookers next week to work out guest spotlights, etc.! It didn't work last year for that plan, but if you don't keep trying, you will never succeed, right?
Thanks again to all who participated...you all rock your Fancy Pants!

Today we are listing 2 international members and 4 (of 5) domestic members! So, if I can get a drumroll please....a drumroll for some amazingly talented ladies that Fancy Pants is super duper excited to have join us.....in no particular order :)! (Ladies...let me know if I mess up your name in any way :)!)
Liana Suwandi (US)
Staci Taylor (US)
Ania Lexander (NO)
Jolene Pienaar (AU)
Denine Zelinski (US)
Nikki Bellish (US)


They are still trying to reach one more person, so there was a delay in making the announcement, and i've been bursting at the seams to share the news - so now i'm going to get it out of my system.... AAAAAHHHH, I'm so excited! Heheah, that felt good. Anyway, I am extremely honored and flattered (and shocked!!), so I'm going to enjoy floating on this cloud for awhile... Also want to give a super big congrats to the other girls, especially to Ania and Denine! I can't believe I get to work with Ania on two design teams! :-)

Onto more exciting stuff! Luxe has launched their brand new gallery here. It's really really organized and has lots of different ways to search, so go check it out when you get a chance! Speaking of Luxe, Aussie Scrap Source posted their feature on Luxe today, and my layout, Bikini, is included. That site is overflowing with eye candy, so check it out if you need some inspo!

And, since I've been so slack in posting layouts here lately (CMK Sept. kit layouts coming soon!), I do have one that I made with some Jenni Bowlin gorgeousness (is that a word? It is now!). It didn't take me long to scrap those photos of Chloe trying on my shoes!
I had a ton of fun with this layout! I used the shaped paper as my guide to cut the inside papers down. I backed everything on a transparency and left some of that peeking through. I then covered the transparency area with tulle... so much fun to work with! I cut out some flowers from one of her papers and glittered them up, as well as the edges of the shaped paper. Everything is JBS except for the orange flowers which are Petaloo.

Hope everyone is having a great week and looking forward to the long weekend ahead!!
