Fancy Pants Designs + big changes

Well, most of you already know anyway, but I thought it would be proper to make an official announcement: I am one of the very luck ladies participating in the Fancy Pants Creative Team :) The official announcement is in their current newsletter (on the website homepage) and here is a link to my profile there. If you like paper scrapping at all and you never heard of Fancy Pants you don’t know what you are missing. If you are a digital girl, you would be very tempted to play with real paper when you see the designs from Michelle Coleman, Nancie Rowe Janitz and Jackie Eckles in print. Here are some of the papers I have (it doesn't include the latest release):

Fancy Pants goodies - Aged Florals Fancy Pants goodies - Holly Jolly Fancy Pants goodies - Floral Chic Fancy Pants goodies - Key Lime Fancy Pants goodies - Botanical
Fancy Pants goodies - Sweet Pea Fancy Pants goodies - Clair de Lune Fancy Pants goodies - about a boy Fancy Pants goodies Fancy Pants goodies - True

Because of real life commitments (meaning work) and consequent lack of scrapping time I have decided to step down from all my digital Creative Teams, except Little Dreamers Designs, where I am a hybrid girl and also a designer. It was a VERY hard decision, because I LOVE them so much, but I just didn’t have time to apply myself to CT work. I am very uncomfortable when I don’t participate, even when I am told I don’t have to, it is always in the back of my head. I also think it is bad example for other CT members and I feel bad about it. Anyway, I know I can’t have it all no matter how much I want, so something had to give and let me tell you, I do feel relieved :)

Well, it is not like I am going to stop digi scrapping, but, I sure have to organize myself better and will be doing a lot less digi than I used to. I mentioned before I used to make about 20 pages a month, that is just not feasible anymore, I don’t have mojo for that. Anyway, I guess I rambled enough for today LOL what about I show you some pages I did for Fancy Pants?

I will continue to work on my hybrid templates and hopefully get some pages done for my 2008 albums, but expect to see much more paper scrapping here from now on, I hope this is good news :)
Have a great weekend and happy scrapping!!!
ETA. By the way, I forgot to mention Fancy Pants is having a CT call!!!
