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. :)

Let's Capture These Sketches, #146

I don't get to create boy pages very often; I have two little girls, and even our cats are girls. My poor husband has to suffer through an awful lot of estrogen-driven ruffles, frills and trims in his life. :) My aunt sent me a few photos of my cousin's little miracle, Maximus. He was born very very early, and weighed in just under two pounds. I had so much fun making a boy page! You can find the LCOM sketch here, and here's my take on it!
I am beginning to catch the washi tape bug, and I've used it here--some fun blue to create a mat on my background paper, and then some awesome woodgrain washi for accents. I added a rub-on (one of those things that I have a million of, but rarely use!) and some Basic Grey metal flowers. The wooden letters are by Pink Paislee, and I love how they took the Glimmer Mist; none of them are exactly the same. Thanks for looking!
