My first Lucas layout (and some more Fancy Pants :-)

Ever since Lucas was born 3 short weeks ago, i've been so excited to dive in and scrap my newest addition. Of course I used Fancy Pants' Road Show line since that is one of my all time favorite FP lines, and it seems to be my go-to collection for any occasion! I covered the naked FP chip letters with Tim Holtz crackle paint and some clear glitter. I finally used the gorgeous flocked transparency, too, that i've been saving (hording?) for just the perfect occasion.

Journaling reads: Before you came along, I didn't even realize what I was missing. But the moment I held you for the first time, I knew. You complete our family. You complete me as a mommy. And I am eternally grateful. I love you, our little Lucas Blake!
This one uses a combination of Road Show and some Kraft Kuts papers. I also played around with my new EK Success punch that I love :-)

And lastly, another layout using Road Show and some Kraft Kuts papers - I told you Road Show is my go-to collection lol. I love these photos of Noah and Chloe! Things here are going well. We are adjusting to life as a family of 5 and trying to establish new routines. Noah is getting used to Kindy, and Chloe started pre-school this week. Lucas is working on staying awake more than 30 minutes a day ;-) I am recovering from surgery pretty well and even just started driving short distances - ahhh, it feels good to get some freedom back lol. I'm definitely sleep deprived, but I know it's temporary (sort of, lol). And he is worth it. Completely and totally :-)

gorgeous work! I remember loving that first page I was able to scrap of Hayden. Doesn't being "complete" feel nice! :)

Beautiful pages! How in the world do you find time to do such beautiful work with a new born - you are my super hero!

These are darling, Stacy!
I am a huge Road Show fan too, I have several sheets that I am just hoarding, scared to use! LOL
I think that EK Success punch is awesome, where did you find it!?
And I agree, there is nothing better than a sweet dreamy little newborn who sleeps all day
Give little Lucas a smooch from me!

This post made me smile the whole way through. I'm so happy about your newest addition. You did a beautiful first layout for baby and you did equally as beautiful work for the other two layouts. :)

Ohhh girl... you got me. Your words on that first page of Lucas got me all teary! How nice it must be to have that feeling!

And I can understand your passion for the Road Show collection! It's one of my all time faves of FP too. I still need to find me some Lilac House though!

Again, gorgeous work, my friend!

Hi Staci!! How wonderful to see this first layout of adorable Lucas! What a perfect treasure he is! Love, love your repetition of that fabulous photo and the mix of black & white and color. I can't believe you've been able to scrap all 3 of these pages in such a short time since having the baby. You are just amazing. Love, love the die cut shapes you're using, and I adore that Road Show line, too.
