I am a mother. I am a wife. I am a sister, a daughter, an aunt, a cousin.
I am a scrapbooker.
I have always been artistic, it just took me a while to find my outlet. I sew, needlepoint, and draw. I also enjoy cooking and baking. I have dabbled in scrapbooking since high school by adding memorabilia to my pictures, but something was still missing.
I found modern scrapbooking after our first daughter was born and I have not looked back. I really do hope that someday, my children look at my scrapbooks and really get who I am and how much I love them. Within the last few years, I've been introduced to mixed media and well, the world will never be the same.
My husband of 12 years and I have two sweet little girls, aged 9 and 3. They are funny, sassy, sometimes naughty, silly, gorgeous, loving, bright, often cheerful, diva-esque little princesses, and they are the lights of my life. I am lucky to be married to my best friend; I swear, I love him more every day. In real life, I am a portrait and wedding photographer, but my true loves are all at home. :)

Scrapping away!

We were able to take an extended vacation this year; both of us had two weeks off from work. We spent about 10 days at the in-laws in Maryland and then the rest, of course, at home. I have been a scrapping fool, finishing a massive (and heretofore unheard of!) 7 layouts!!

Our Christmas was pretty uneventful and very fulfilling. We were able to see most of Andy's family on this visit, which was a wonderful change. Christmas Day brought the annual brunch, which Mom hosted this year. We made the most wonderful apple cinnamon french toast; the french bread soaked up the custard all night long. Mom also had a new recipe for a quick spinach pie that turned out divine, I'll totally be making a new one of those very very soon! The following Sunday, the other half of the family came over for a tasty ham dinner and gift exchange. Evie had a lot of fun playing with little Lucas. He's so big! We also made it out to see O'ma several times and got to spend a lot of time with Andy's brother and the other guys. :)
New Year's was pretty uneventful since we drove home New Year's Eve. I had plans for a scrappy sleepover with my friend Melissa and Andy was kind enough to drop me off (don't get me started about the cars...I really don't know what we're going to do in the long run with one car).
