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. :)

Has it been two weeks already? Boy, I tell you, this time of year seems to just FLY by! A fabulous new sketch is up at Twisted Sketches and this week's twist is Star...any way, any how!
This is pretty much straight out of the April Scarlet Lime kit, with a bit of help from Shimmerz (Enamelz in Sparklicious and Gold Digger) and Pink Paislee brads. I think I might be in love with washi tape, that was fun! Most of the paper and embellies are SEI; the chip and acrylic stars are from Basically Bare, as are the felt clouds. And the sweet smiley baby is my niece, who I love to pieces. Those cheeks are perfect for kissing :)
