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. :)

This is my oldest daughter, Evie, carving pumpkins with Daddy and I a couple of years ago. She was so cute, and we had such a good time :)

You can find this super cute Bingo card set here at The Cutting Cafe. Regina has created some SUPER CUTE Halloween and fall themed printable stamps and cutting files. Head over and check them out!

Let's Celebrate With the Flamingo!

October brings the second anniversary of Flamingo Scraps! Keep an eye on their blog and find them on Facebook to see some fantastic prizes, contests and giveaways! The layout below was created using the Graphic 45 Steampunk Debutante line, purchased from FS, of course. They have a wonderful Vintage/Steampunk Grab Bag chock full of old and new lace, metal parts, trims, and more. The lace and metal watch parts on my page came from the grab bag. It's kind of hard to see, but I misted Iridescent Gold Glimmer Mist around a square mask in the center of my page.

October also brings my turn as the Guest Design Team! I'm so excited. Fellow DT'r Diana and I were introduced on the blog on October 1. Diana will be guest blogging on Tuesdays and I will be posting photography and Photoshop tips on Thursdays.
