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. :)

A Sad Announcement :(

I am sharing sad news today: Twisted Sketches is closing. You can find our final sketch here. The twist is "thanks;" any how, any way. While I am sad that my journey with Twisted Sketches is ending, I adore how this layout turned out. I wanted a photo of both girls with their Easter baskets, but the baby wouldn't sit still (big surprise--she rarely does!). My big girl tried to help, and "hug Sissie!" was our last-ditch attempt...I'll take it! The wood grain paper (Studio Calico) was so fun with all the wood floor in my photo, and I love the collage tag from Crate Paper. The chipboard, stickers, and borders are all Crate Paper, too, and the letter stickers are Making Memories. The heart doily is misted with a light pink (Shimmerz). I would like to thank Anam from Twisted Sketches for allowing me to be part of her awesome team over the last year; I've learned and grown so much, and I've loved every minute of it!
