A Fancy Layout and Some Fancy Sneaks

Well this week has been busy here!  Lots of creating with fun new stuff!  You should see the boxes I have scattered around my room.  :)  But I've also been sick.  :(  And just plain exhausted.  I hope I can get back to normal soon.  I have so much to share with you but most of it can't be shared just yet.  So I will share a layout I actually did a while back but haven't posted yet.  :)



I used a lot of Spellbinders on this layout.  I used the Creative Book Pages and the Wonderful Wings dies.  I cut the butterflies, but I also used the butterfly as a stencil.  I put the die on my page, traced around it and then added stitching over my pencil lines.  It made for a cool journaling block.  :)

All the papers are from the Baby Mine collection from Fancy Pants Designs.  I love how I used this baby collection for a non-baby....it's actually pretty easy to do with this collection.  :)

Here are some close up's of my layout:

And speaking of Fancy Pants...have you seen the new releases yet?  They are sharing their fourth collection on their blog today!  And you can win the new collections, so make sure you stop by and check it out!  I'll post sneaks of the new collections here:





Thanks for stopping in today!!!!!  I haven't done much blog hopping myself this week because I have been so busy, but I hope to soon!  

Have a wonderful day!!!
