Yes, I know...

I know, I know, I said my goal is to blog three times a week. Buuuuut, let me point out that my goal deadline is a year, lol. Baby steps, right? How was everyone's Nat'l Scrapbooking Day? I didn't get to scrapbook on the actual day, but I did go to a crop yesterday with Heather and Lisa. Fun day! I got a little mini done (to be shown later) and this Fancy Pants layout about my dad. My dad is definitely one of a kind, and I really wanted to document that...


We're doing something different on the Fancy Pants blog. We're showcasing a different product 4 times a month, and to keep the layouts fresh, we're not showing them until then. So, here is a teeny weeny peek of my layout using the fabulous new Kraft Kuts:

Ack, my naked children are running around waiting to get in the tub, but before I sign off, I wanted to direct you all to the awesome new blog, The Next Step. These girls are super talented scrappers and mixed media artists, and they just posted their first tutorial.

Lastly, I have to give a big shout out and THANK YOU to my friend Lisa Howard. I won a RAK on Lisa's blog which arrived today, and let me tell you, this girl was not fooling around! This box was stuffed to the brim with goodies, and I am so appreciative of Lisa's kindness! Thanks so much, girl!!

Hope you all are having a happy Monday!

Lisa T. Howard said...

Naked children??? I can't imagine...mine were NEVER allowed to be without clothes, publicly or privately...NOT! I have more naked pics of my kiddos when they were little than ones with them clothed...lol!

Absolutely LOVE the layout of you and your dad...seems to be THE perfect dad! I can tell by your journaling you guys have a great relationship! And that sneak peek is very enticing...got me on the edge of my seat!

I've already been hanging out at The Next Step. Those ladies are super creative...love being made to think outside the box.

Glad you got your box. I hate it took over a week to get it to you. But at least it arrived safe and sound! Hope you can use some of the "stuff"...if anyone can make something fantastic out of that stash it is YOU! Hope you are having a fantastic week!

P.S. I'll cut you some slack for not posting as often as you had mentioned, but I sure do enjoy seeing your blog jump up on my blog roll!!! :)
