SO NERVOUS... and got to love me some FANCY PANTS layouts!

Okay... the good news! I made the final round for the TREASURED HUNT 2010 at Treasured Scrapbooking! I know... I am just as shocked! lol! Even my husband, who looked at all the layouts in round three, and thought I didn't stand a chance... and here I am in round four, biting my fingernails!

The challenge this week was a tricky one, because there was A LOT involved! It really made me think about what to do, and the design of the whole project! Here was the challenge:

Use a closure of some sort on your layout, this can be staples, a paper clip, the little clippy off a manilla envelope, those tie thingies, anything that closes or holds things together.

Use the word "end" in your title.

Include journaling (if it's hidden, please give proof that it is there)

Use FOUR or more photos to symbolize each week of the contest

Use fibers, cord, ribbons, twine, thread, any like that.

Include a handmade element (week one)

Use lined or ledger paper- handmade is fine (week two)

Use bling (week three)

And here's what I came up with:

Some close ups:

So keep your fingers crossed for me! I think we find out later this week!!

It was a busy weekend for us! First off the BLOG HOP for Scrapcetera KITS took place... and thank you for all of you that participated! I will announce the winner of the RAK tomorrow morning!... At the Scrapping Nook- the Crop is still going on... be sure to head over and check it out, as there are lots of amazing challenges!!

Here are some layout that I created recently... I decided to "go for it" and apply to the Fancy Pants Design Team... They have always been one of my absolute FAVS in products... and this DT call, got my butt in gear, to indulge in cutting up the paper, that I SOOOOOO love!!! Here is what I made:

Finally, (like I said!)... it was a crazy weekend! Taylor got her first "cold" and so did my son, Josh... so Friday was a sick day for us, which I was soooo happy about! Saturday, was Jordan's first day back to dance lessons, and the 30 minutes after dance was over, was her big 6th birthday party!... Josh also had a birthday party to go to at the same time! That night we had some friends over for a bbq, and of course my daughter had to have one of her BFF's sleep over!... The next day we had another TWO birthday parties to go too... and we were suppose to go to my MIDWIFE annual picnic, but we were all so exhausted, we decided to stay home for some R & R... FInally it was free weekend at the pumpkin patch... so off we went there for an hour, before tossing in the towel, and heading to bed! The best news, is we got season tickets, so we will be there a lot more this year (which means more photos for us!).... Here are some of my fav photos from this weekend:
