Broken But Not Defeated

**In case you missed it, I have a giveaway in the post below this one.**

So I mentioned on facebook last week that I had made a new layout, here's the layout I was talking about...

And the close up's:

(LOVE those fabric leaves from Prima!)

Didn't feel like journaling much...just what I wanted to say.

That teal paint is from a large foam stamp. Sometimes I just want to risk getting a little messy. :)

And I have done this before, but I just love cutting flowers in half and using them on the sides. I think it's cool. :) You don't have to. ;)

All of the supplies come from Prima Marketing and were adhered using the fabulous 450 Quick Dry from Helmar.

I don't feel like there is too much to say...the layout says it all.

Have a great day!

A Little of Everything FP (and a GIVEAWAY)

Hope you all had a fantastic Easter! Anybody else with an abundance of Easter candy? Here are my Easter blessings:

I actually LOVE this picture because I feel like each of their personalities are shining through! I love it when you are able to capture personality!

Thanks for the continued prayers, comments and emails. We are doing seems to be getting easier. As you can see from this post and my posts on facebook...I'm scrapbooking again--which I think is a good sign. We do have to deal with a lot of things that are still tough, but we are making it through. I consider all of you friends and I truly thank you for your support during this time in my life!

Well I have more Fancy Pants layouts to share with you today. :) I've got a layout for each of the 4 lines released at CHA. **PSSST...I couldn't say "from the latest releases" because FP has a NEW release, you can sneak a peek at it here. I feel very lucky to get to work with such fabulous product.

This one uses the "It's The Little Things" line:

Here are some close up's:

And then this one uses the "Beach Bum" line:

You can also find the fabulous filters, the awesome metal charms and the cool chipboard banners on this page, all from the Artist's Edition line. Here are some close up's:

Here's another page showcasing the metal charms. I just love them! It uses the "Beach Babe" line from FP:

I know...SO not beach related. :) Hey, I live in Colorado...we don't exactly have beaches here. But the papers are so versatile in this line that it is easy to use them for non-beach layouts and projects. Here are some close up's of the layout:

And finally, here's a fun layout that uses the "To The Moon" line:

There's a lot going on on this page and I just LOVE it! I think this one is my favorite of the bunch. Hayden actually helped me do it by picking the products and giving me advice. :) He made his own rocket layout too. Here are some close up's:

And now we come to the part you were probably waiting for...


Just by leaving a comment on this post, you can win the wonderful "It's The Little Things" line from Fancy Pants:

You don't have to post about it somewhere else or become a follower (though of course if you WANT to, that would be perfectly fine), you just have to leave a comment on this post to be included in the drawing for this kit. I will draw a name and announce the winner next Monday.

Ok all, have a wonderful day!!!

I have a ton of My Little Shoebox stuff to share with you. Most of it was made for CHA and I was just waiting to share it with you til after it was shared on the MLS blog. As you know, I am no longer designing for MLS, but I do want to give a big shout out to all the fabulous designers who just made the team! I can't wait to see what you all do with their stuff. I will always love MLS. :)

So, since I have so much...I am just sharing the projects without all the close up's....

These use the City By The Bay line:

These use the Farmers Market line:

These use the Sew Cute line:

Ok...there you have it. That was a lot.

I worked on some new stuff yesterday. :) And the day before I made a new layout too. Can't wait to share my new stuff with you all!

Have a wonderful day!

Fancy some Fancy Pants?

I have a few layouts to share with you using the fabulous products from Fancy Pants. :)

This first layout uses the oh-so-cute It's The Little Things line. I just ADORE this is hands down my favorite so far from Fancy Pants.

It uses another favorite of mine among the new Fancy Pants products...the awesome filters! They are so fun. I used them in the next layout too. I sprayed a little glimmer mist on them. Here are some close up's:

Those acrylic cuts were adhered with the fabulous V2 Vellum Adhesive spray from Helmar Adhesives! That stuff rocks too. :)

And then here is a fun layout I did for the FP was done for one of our Pocket Chick Pick features where I chose a layout from Heather Robertson to lift. You can see that post here. Here is my layout:

It also uses the It's The Little Things line and the filters. Here are some close up's:

And this cool look was done with Helmar Adhesive's Crackle product:

It's very easy to do. Then I sprayed a little glimmer mist on it and wiped it off so highlight the cracks more.

And then there is one more I wanted to share with you, but I will just sneak it for now. ;)

This layout showcases the fun Glitter Cuts from Fancy Pants (from their To The Moon line). To see the whole layout, check out this Fancy Pants blog post.

Have a wonderful day everyone!!!
