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 ready for a Groovy Blog Hop?

that's right, us groovy girls are doing a blog hop crop challenge. to sweeten the deal, our theme is the 80s! oh, the 80s!! hair, movies, music, fashion.

when i think back on the 80s, i remember most how MUCH of everything there was. hair was big, fashions were loud (and can you say big earrings?), music was extreme. it was the decade of excess! so i challenge you to go to extremes and use too much on your layout--let's see those puppies decked out to the max dude! the prize for my challenge will be a basic grey collection pack of your choice. link your layout here in my comments by june 14 to enter my random drawing, and don't forget to check out the other blogs in the blog train for even more prizes!
