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. :)

are YOU groovy?

for july, groovy deb challenged us to create a "zero angles" layout--a layout containing no right angles. it was such a fun challenge! here's my take on it:

be sure to cruise on over to if it's groovy to see what the rest of the dt came up with and to enter your creation--there's a great rak up for grabs!!

the two page team has been busy, too. you can see the sketch we used at if it's groovy, and this month, our technique was paint! i used white paint all over--the edges of the layout, the patterned paper squares and the lollipop flowers are all dry brushed with white paint. i also used a stamp with white paint and i like how it turned out! i used a white paint pen to outline the title letters and to journal with. :) here it is!

Oh I like the effect of the paint against the various blues - very nautical :)
