A little work .. a little play

And... "play" came first. lol Thought I'd share a new Fancy Pants layout I did , using the new Kraft Kuts line from Fancy Pants. ( which I LOVE..btw)
You can see all the lines HERE.

In the photo... my Aunt Viv, Uncle Al and my Mom.

Title if done with Coordinating stickers from the Kraft Kuts line... and FP chipboard letters.

The center of the Flower was stamped using one of the stamps from the "Delight" stamp set.

The design on either side of the photo .. is also from the Delight Stamp set.
Okay..that was the "play" part of the day...that means work came next.
I spent a good part of the day, cleaning, and organizing my room. Each project I work on seems.. leads me to take out more and more "things" and not get them put back where they really belong. After a very short time.. things get pretty out of control in here. I love organization!... so that means.. every once in a while it's time to just re-group and get things back where they belong. Not to mention... a little dusting was needed. Okay.. ALOT of dusting was needed. One of the glories of living in the country on a gravel road.

I even let my little spool fairies out to play for a bit.
When it comes to dusting ... I wish I didn't like "stuff" so much. grr

Oh.. how I love jars of stuff. lol

I even dusted off and re arranged the top of the hoosier. ( yay Vic) ..
I could so easily ignore it. lol

Although.. I love rubber stamps.. thank goodness Acrylic came I can have more.. and store them easier.. because I was out of room.

Oh.. and last but not least... I have to share with you.. my new little flea market find lamp. I so reminds me of something that would have sitting on my grammies night stand. Love it! It makes me happy!

I wanted to tell you that Pink Persimmon has a new challenge going on also.. so dont miss it. You have got to see these doll created with their new stamps!!

I am listening your blog music while working in my studio. We have similar taste in many things. it! Your photos are gorgeous! All I can say is wow!!!! I hope to be all moved in to your studio by next Tuesday! LOL..mine is still a bomb. I would love to clean on Father's Day but I don't see that happening. I would probably get beat! I spend too much time in my junk hole as it is now! Look at your schedule and please come to KC. You can stay with me...and I want you to go to Vintiques before it closes. My hubby is gone next week to Virgina. Just come say for a few days. If you can take the kids and the dogs, we would have so much fun. Pleeeez!
