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. :)

Another great sketch has been posted over at Twisted Sketches! This week's twist is "Start"...any way, any how!
Here's my take on the sketch:
I used a kraft base and some pretty pink Bittersweet papers (Basic Grey). Add in a few Cosmo Cricket and Prima flowers, a Making Memories journal spot, and some Thickers, and there you have it! This photo is of my oldest playing dress-up with one of our cats. This cat is soooooo patient; we like to say that she loves the abuse. Any kind of attention is good attention in Kung Pao's world! My twist is that this moment was the start of a long afternoon...for the cat ;)
