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. :)

Sketch #140 reveal!

Check it out here! Please click through to see the sketch and all the team's interpretations :) Here's mine!
This one was more about a story for me, so it's pretty simple. I used Glimmer Mist and my coffee mug to make the rings, and a couple of pieces of homey patterned paper to tie in with the photo of our home. I added a title, some doodling and journaling, and voila! Papers: SEI, Studio Calico Alphas: Thickers, Glitz Designs Pen: Creative Memories Misc: Glimmer Mist Thanks for visiting!
