She told me that once she forgot herself and her heart opened up like a door with a loose latch and everything fell out and she tried for days to put it all back in the proper order, but she finally gave up and left if there in a pile and loved everything equally. - Brian Andreas

Found these words the other day & am just loving them :)  It's been too long since I've last blogged, but the "once-a-month" posting seems pretty typical of me these days :)  It's not that I don't want to blog or don't have stuff to share - just such little time . . . I have been busy, raising little men, supporting my husband in his new business venture, helping my parent's with organizing some construction needed in their home, and trying, very hard, to get healthy again.  In the past 7 weeks have lost just shy of 20 lbs and am finally running again.  I don't love running, but I love how exercising makes me feel so it's worth it :)  I am learning to appreciate healthy food - fruits, vegetables, fish, etc.  Don't get me wrong, I'm still craving my "-ito" family (that's Fritos, Doritos, and Cheetos)!! Just not giving in :) 

If you follow me on Facebook you may have noticed a recent share of my latest Fancy Pants Designs post.  It's all about my creative space :)  Here's a sneaky peek:

To check out more of my room head over to the post HERE.

I also have my two latest Fancy Pants Designs pages to share.  First up is a layout featuring the What A Wonderful Day Collection.  I had so much fun with the border around the page - lots of texture. Oh and all those arrows!!!  I had a ball fussy cutting from one of their fabulous patterned papers :)

My other page features the Memories Captured Collection.  The hues were perfect for this pic of my grandmother & Ryan.  I did a similar border treatment to the top and bottom of the page.  I just LOVED the die-cut polaroid frame!! Do you see those little stars?  They were actually punched from the new Fancy Pants Designs chalk tape!! So easy to adhere to my layout with their sticker backing :)
