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 am a Twisted Sister!

I have been holding this in for a couple of weeks now and I'm so excited to be able to announce that I am a Twisted Sister, designing for Twisted Sketches!! There will be a new sketch posted every Wednesday (with a new card sketch posted on Saturdays), and each one with have its own twist.
You can find the current sketch here; sketch 114 was the DT application and you can see everyone's super creative take on it! This was mine:
The twist is vintage, and my take on the twist is the photos--this is me and my paternal grandfather in 1978. I have so many fond memories of playing with Grandpa in the pool! He passed away nearly three years ago now, but I haven't been able to bring myself to scrap these yet. It felt really good--I sure do miss him!
The little fish were fussy cut from Fancy Pants Beach Babe papers, as was the big wave/flourish shape. I added some jewels and buttons, tore the edges of my white base and then added a blue behind; the edges of the blue were inked in a lime green (chalk in from the dollar bin at Michaels). Thanks for looking!
