Fancy Monday

Hello everyone! I hope you had a great weekend! We visited the Grand Haven beach on Saturday to catch the Sand Sculpture Contest. We arrived too late to watch the contestants create, but we did get to see the sand sculptures which was fun! What's not so fun is the massive sunburn I now have. I did actually put sunblock on but missed some those spots are fried! Will I ever learn?!

I have several Fancy Pants projects to share.

This first one is a mini album that I created for my mother-in-law for Mother's Day. The Fancy Pants My Family collection and Mixed Media book were perfect for this project. I cut the Half Bracket Book down to create a narrower album.

For the base of this pendant I used a frame from the Fancy Pants, Artist Edition, Metal Frame Set 3. I added a rubon to some paper, glued the paper into the frame and added Glossy Accents over the paper and rubon. Once completely dry I added the pendant to a chain with some matching beads. This was such a fun and easy project...I can't wait to make another one!

Moya, my mom and I went to Mackinac Island last summer for a fun girls getaway weekend. These are some photos I snapped during our trip. I used the Fancy Pants Road Show collection. The pleated piece is a page from the Road Show Notebook Journal cut in half lengthwise with pleats folded every 3/4" or so.

The Fancy Pants About A Girl collection is the setting for these photos of miss Moya playing basketball. I painted the back of the About A Girl printed transparency with two shades of green paint to coordinate with my photos better.

Well, that's it for now. Thanks for stopping by and have an awesome day!

Everything's all so lovely! :)
Sounds like you're having fun too! I rarely use sunblock because I usually don't really need it due to my darker skin, which causes me to really get sunburnt when I actually do need it once in a blue moon..ouch! :p
