My Fancy Pants mixed media album

I'm done! I must be the slowest person in the world when it comes to making mini albums! I don't feel like mine are ever that big or that intricate, yet they take me forever! Oh well, it's a good thing I enjoy the creative process ;-) This one, especially, was SO much fun to make! These new mixed media albums by Fancy Pants are so cool! I got to play with chipboard, acrylic and felt - fun, fun, fun! I also used the brand new paper lines - mostly Delight with a little of On a Whimsey. Used lots of other FP felt and chipboard, too.

You should be able to click on the images to see them larger (thanks to my CMK friends for helping me with this!).


The shaped acrylic page in the center here was actually from another Fancy Pants clear album I had. This view shows the page underneath with the clear page flipped up:

I tried to get a view of the acylic page by itself:



We've had quite a snow and ice-filled week! Actually, we only ended up getting a few inches of snow, but there was quite a bit of ice. So, Noah had a preschool snow day on Tuesday, and even I got off of work yesterday, which was supposed to be my long day of work. We took the kids to the big hill near our house to go sledding - it was so much fun! Afterwards, we came home and ordered pizza and made s'mores with our next door neighbors. It was a great day :-)

Hope everyone is having a great week!
