Nut Jobs - Paper Issues

What!!! It is easier than you think. Be daring and use patterned paper for every thing! 
No solid colors people. None.

You have through April 30th to play along. Your entry must be new and no double dipping! That means, you can only submit each project once.  Enter this challenge HERE.

Come on, you can do it!  I did.  You can use a delicate patterned paper for the background if that helps.  I played along using Doodlebug Down on the Farm. I must say, the Doodle Pops are my all time fave.

I Learned Snapchat - Fancy Pants


I am excited to back with Fancy Pants for another term.  I hope that you will continue to be inspired by what I create with the FP product and with the other girls on the team.  It is a fun place to be!
I have been crafting since I was a child. Macaroni art with my mom, the girl scout leader and my own style of traditional scrapbooking all through high school.  I started to really incorporating pretty papers and embellishments in 2000.  5 years before my boy was born.  Being married to a Marine, we had plenty of memories and stories that I needed to document.  I have enjoyed myself ever since.
For this post, I created a silly layout about Snapchat.  I recently discovered how to actually use the app.  (I was schooled by a teenager!)  My son HATES when I capture him with the different filters but I think it is so much fun.  You can see in one of these photos that I am seriously laughing.  It is a hoot.

Happy - Paper Issues

Good morning.

When I opened the March Swag Bag and saw the toothpick thingy, I knew exactly what I was going to use for a photo. I have had this photo of my BFF and I from the USMC in 2013.  The gold frame was perfect for Kathy's dress and the purple touches were perfect for mine!
I also threw in some of  Glitter Girl by Shimelle.  
A purple flair from A Flair for Buttons.
