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. :)

Two new layouts, both from my weekend of cropping bliss at Creative Passions 2 in Chesaning, Michigan, with my best scrappy girlfriends!
Our littlest loves Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, so naturally, we had a Mickey Mouse birthday party. It was hard to get her to wear the ears (I made her a Minnie dress), but I got a few shots. :) I love the banner (such a fun trend!), and the diecut from the Mickey Mouse Font cartridge made a perfect journal spot. :)
I love this photo, but didn't really have anything to say about it, so I had fum with stamps on this one. I stamped each Jenni Bowlin chipboard heart with a differnt pattern, in three different colors of StazOn and Tim Holtz Distress Inks. The background "newsprint" is a roller stamp. I pleated and stitched the ribbon, and added a few pieces cut from Basic Grey Bittersweet papers.
