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. :)

Evie and the butterflies

we had such a nice afternoon at the butterfly house, located near the 4h children's gardens at msu.

i haven't been very good at updating, but i thought perhaps a photo post would be fun. :) easter was fun. we had an easter egg hunt for the kids. this photo of my sister, brother and i is the first one we've done in a couple of years. and evie and cousin makenna had lots of fun playing together :)
i seem to have taken a lot of photos of evie eating this month. poor kid. so here is ice cream at coldstone creamery and the biggest, reddest strawberries i've ever seen. i'm going to add some pics of evie at the butterfly house in another post because i can't make this darn thing rearrange the photos!!

if it's groovy!

i can finally announce that ms. groovy deborah has invited me to become a member of her groovy design team. how exciting! i'll be working on 2 page layouts (ooooh a challenge!) and also participating in her monthly challenge. i was asked fairly close to the april deadline (and i'm pretty sure the surgeon took my sb mojo gland instead of the one he was supposed to remove), so i haven't got a layout for april. yet. but i'll be working on it!
this month is national frog month (go figure!), and that's the theme for deborah's monthly RAK opportunity. so pull out your froggies, whether they be princes or toadies, and hop on over to if it's groovy to enter the contest :)
