I took one of the viewfinder pages out of the album and used it to make a fun layout about each of my kids. #Life 2013.

I made another layout using up the fun Fancy Pants banners. This was from a concert my son and I went to last year – if you watch Dancing with the Stars one of the contestants was from a band called Big TIme Rush which was one of the bands that played. We also got to see Cody Simpson who was also on Dancing with the Stars.

I also added the Amy Tan script foam word Seriously to the title.

Fabulous mini books


Hello bloggers,

Today Fleur is sharing a fabulous mini book she made with a book from Bo-Bunny and a few products from Fancy Pants – Trendsetter collection, which coordinate perfectly with the mini album.

NEW Fleur for blog_edited-1

I loved working with this awesome mini album from Bo Bunny:

Modern Miss chipboard album
I made a mini album using it and also used one of the mini album pages for a layout. Here’s the mini album: I filled the album with photos from a boat trip we went on with my bosses Linda and Everett. I kept the cover of the album pretty plain as I loved the viewfinder.

Inside I also used some Fancy Pants stickers and Flair as embellishments.

Get some Fresh Air

Good morning!

This month I got to work with some pretty spring colors with the new Simple Stories Fresh Air collection and some misc Echo Park papers.Our snow is finally all gone and I’m so happy that the weather is staring to warm up. I can just feel summer is right around the corner! For my first LO, I created some dimension by layering random sized pennants on the bottom of my LO. I can’t believe how fast this girl is growing up!!
