Fancy that...

I had a project up on the Fancy Pants blog yesterday - this Photo Ornament:



I also finished my 2-page Layout for the third round of the contest at AMM. It was a huge challenge for me to do a 2-pager - I don't do them very often, but I really enjoyed it! We had to use red and green, and I ended up making a New Year's layout since the green paper seemed very festive to me. I handcut a bunch of silver swirls and added some bling to add to the festive feel.

Have you checked out the Luxe blog recently? They've been posting awesome new holiday card ideas every day!


I just found out I won an awesome prize pack from Label Tulip - they had a contest to see who had the messiest scraproom. Now that is a contest made for me!! This is the photo that I shared - it's of my scrapdesk right after I finished my tree mini last week. Yikes!!


Lastly, I received my gorgeous kit from A Million Memories for my Guest Designer gig for December. I'm hoping to tear into it tonight and will hopefully have some more projects to share soon!

Hi, my name is Tracie Farmer, I live in Las Vegas, and we have a mutual friend her name is Shanna Vineyard (some of us know her as Shanna Lamb).

I have an idea and I am hoping for just a bit of help. I have been friends with Shanna for over 14 years, she is one of my greatest lifelines. I check in with Shanna daily through one of her blogs, Etsy shop, or send /receive emails daily. She is one of my most creative, hilarious, Dr. Pepper addicted friends I have. And yes she will probably kill me. But the crumbiest thing has happened, her computer crashed last weekend, and as many of you have noticed POOF no Shanna :(. I know how upset she has been about having to treck down to the library, and heaven knows when she has the time with a new baby, 5 girls and the childcare kiddos. I am missing the "Shanna Vineyard" element in my life.

In light of this holiday season I have decided to forego sending Shanna a Christmas card and instead I am going to send a little computer donation of 4 or 5 bucks to her Paypal account.

Maybe, just maybe if enough of us do this we can save a few trees and get Shanna back to blogging and posting some beautiful cards and craft ideas.

Please respond if you have any better ideas or tips, and forward this to anyone you know that loves our dear friend Shanna.

I hope there aren't any objections and hopefully this can be a sweet surprise the next time she trecks to the library and signs into her Paypal account!!!
All you need to do is make a payment at www.paypal.com to Shannalamb@cox.net.

God Bless
Happy Holidays
Tracie Farmer
(Shanna's friend from Vegas)

Staci0I am constantly learning new things about you-I never woulda thought in a million gazillion years that YOU could be this messy! Maybe Santa could send over a few chubby elves (me & Essandra) to clean up (translation: relieve you of scrappin supplies while straightening)your scrap room???
If I don't see you soon, have a very Merry Christmas-kiss Tony for me!
