Turquoise – Layout 3
The first time I laid eyes on today’s steal, the Fancy Pants Summer’s End collection, it was pretty much love at first sight. The gorgeous combination of muted oranges, blues and greens, really spoke to my crafty soul. While the name of the collection connotes the wrapping up of lazy days with a hint of crispness to the air, I found this collection to work delightfully with a recent outing with my three favorite boys on one of the warmest days we’ve recently had. Sheesh, I love a good versatile collection!
The embellishments in this collection were a dream to work with. Even though some may shun the flowers on a “boy” layout, after having three girls first, I just can’t break the habit and I love how the filter paper embellishments could be crumpled up a little bit to create a flower.
And of course, banners, my current addiction along with using Instagram prints.
I was so in love with this collection that I whipped together this layout of my “Tuba Friend” in about 20 min. Not sure if I love or hate it, but still fun to have a quick layout done about my oldest who is currently learning how to play the tuba/sousaphone.
As far as Fancy Pants Designs go, I think they have settled on perfection.
And now that happy time of day I get to announce the lucky random winner of last week’s Mid Week Mojo. This week Staci Jones is our winner with this adorable Halloween layout.
