Good morning!

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 todays 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.


I used the fun red and blue bits from The Bright Side Collection.  I layered triangular papers with ephemera and a large banner that I created, ties it all together.


I used a black title because I had tucked in a black piece of ephemera, used black word paper and twine from the tags.


I love the bright colors on this collection.  There are so many directions you can go with this line.  I have another layout later in the month that will be mostly yellow and black and all boy so be sure to check in for all the ideas from our team!

Thanks for popping in.
