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. :)

I just love these photos of the baby...with the weather finally nice enough to go out and play, Evie has been spending time in the backyard. Ellie isn't jealous, but she loves to stand at the sliding doors and watch Sissy playing! She bounces, shrieks, bangs, and babbles at big sister. I love the bottom photo because you can see her cheeks all puffed up because she's grinning at her big sister. :)
This is based on a Page Maps sketch. I thought these Fancy Pants Road Show papers captured the mood I felt with the photos: joyful, because my babies are happy, but also a little somber because they're growing so fast. Before I know it, both of them will be running free out there. It seems like they need me a little less every day. I've been doodling a lot lately, and I really love how it works with this design.
