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. :)

Twisted Sketch #156

A new sketch is live on the Twisted Sketches blog! You can find it here. This week's twist is "graduate;" any way, any how! Here is my take on it: After we moved and Ellie had her own room, we decided it was time for her to graduate into a big girl bed. :) She always calls it her "big girl bed," never just a bed. I misted the background with Shimmerz in Lime in da Coconut, and used some odds & ends from Crate Paper (cardstock stickers) and American Crafts (Thickers). The paper was a scrap, and the rub on is Basic Grey. This was made with a sketch from Let's Capture These Sketches, and you can see that here. The sketch fit the moody photo of my almost-nine-year-old, and I had lots of fun with mists (Shimmerz), ink (Studio G), stamps (ditto and Clear Snap), and rub-ons (Basic Grey) to create a grunge-y, tween-y background.
