It's amazing....

that with the world wide web being sooo big, sometimes it can feel so very small. I have made so many wonderful friends through this amazing hobby we all share, and I feel so blessed that I got to meet a bunch of them a couple of weeks ago in California.

One of those people totally made my day today. As I opened my garage door this morning (since we are now in the middle of blizzard #2 in less than a week, believe it or not, and I still can't get out through my front door), I saw a Priority Mail box waiting for me on the ground. This box was chock full of brand new JBS goodies! The new Homespun papers, embellished butterflies, gorgeous vintage buttons, mini-papers, bingo cards, labels, stickers, stickpins all staring me in the face!! I had no idea where this box came from, but I soon found out that my so so sweet friend Doris sent it to me.

Thank you SO much, Doris! You really did make my day, and I can't tell you how much I appreciate it! You're the best!! Now get your butt over here to MD so we can hang for real ;-)

Now, onto more scrappy stuff - I realized I never posted the rest of my Fancy Pants projects for CHA. I made this layout with the Rusted Sun line - love these colors! The blue swirls and surfboards are cut from one of the new flocked transparencies, and that sun was cut from one of the journaling cards.
Now onto the My Family line. This line is so pretty! I added a new glitter cut from this line in the bottom corner, and the swirl rub-on is from the line as well:
Made this wall hanging with the papers from the My Family line and I used a Fancy Pants Embellish Me Frame:
Well, my friends, as I mentioned earlier, we're in the middle of our second blizzard in less than a week! While we still have 33 inches on the ground from the weekend, we were expected to get up to another 20 inches today! I'm not sure if it actually stopped snowing yet, so i'll have to venture into reality to find out what is going on out there lol. Hope you all are staying warm in your neck of the woods!!

hey sweet girl - sorry about all of that darn snow! I hope it goes away soon - the good thing is at least you have a good excuse to scrapbook - right - trapped in the house - no where to go! Great layouts!!

Now that is a true RAK!! Love all your projects too - gorgeous work!!

Audrey Pettit said...

Ummm, that sure is some kind of snow! Wow! I don't think I could handle that. We only had a few inches in our area last week, and it shut us down for 5 days! ;)
Your projects are gorgeous, Staci! Really love how you work the Fancy Pants!

It was so nice to meet you as well, Staci! I hope you are doing well and that baby bump is making a great big appearance! That's the best part!

Can't wait to see what you do with the JBS! Yummy! Gorgeous projects!!!!

Andrea Amu said...

Yes, trying to keep warm! I guess there is another mini blizzard headed this way tomorrow into Tuesday :( I hope it stays mini! :)

Great projects here... I so can't wait to get my hands on some of the new FP. And how nice was that of Doris to send you that package to cheer you up as you've been trapped inside by the storms! Enjoy and have fun creating with it all :)

Lisa Tilmon said...

Hey YOU! I love snow...but probably not in that quantity. LOL! Your creations are delicious...and hope you enjoy your new JBS goodies. Oh so sweet!

Karmele said...

I can not imagine that much snow! incredible!!! :O
These layout are cute!!

Renee Lamb said...

Yikes! That's a lot of snow my friend! Hope you've managed to shovel your way out by now! I couldn't imagine getting that much snow. Our state shut down over 4 inches! hahahahahahaha. I guess the good thing of being snowed in is being to get a little more creating time??? And I agree with the WWW - it's a beautiful thing sometimes isn't it? That's awesome to get a fun box and can't wait to see what you do with them! --- :)
