Sooo much fun, fancy stuff!

Have you guys been keeping an eye on the Fancy Pants blog?? Every day they have been posting a new sneak peek of what will be debuting at CHA later in the week. Awesome stuff!!

This is one new line called Summer Soiree, and below is a layout I made using the line.
Then there is the new line called On a Whimsy. If you're into fun and whimsical, then this line is definitely for you! I've had a plain mirror that I bought from Ikea just waiting to be altered, but I had never found the perfect papers for it... until now! I made the mirror for Chloe's room.


I haven't gotten to play around with the Delight paper line yet, but it's next on my list:



And then there are the mixed media albums, made up of transparent pages, felt pages and chipboard. Trust me, they are SO awesome! I am hoping to get started on one of them tonight! :-)


So, in addition to my excitement over all things Fancy, I was also very excited about the Surprise Retirement party that we threw for my parents this weekend! It went off without a hitch, and they were VERY shocked! Tony and I, along with my bro and SIL, threw the party at our house, and we had all of their closest friends there. This is a pic of my bro, SIL, dad, mom, Tony and me:

Finally, I have some pics from today to share. It finally snowed! Of course, it really didn't amount to much, but we didn't care! :-) After naptime, the kids and I headed out, and we played with some of our favorite people - the girls next door.

This picture cracks me up - you'd think Chloe and Kaylee had just seen a ghost, but no, they were just watching the salt truck salt our street :-)
Now that i've officially overstayed my welcome on your computer with this mega-long post, i'll bid farewell.


Happy Monday, friends!
