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 #154

I had so much fun with this one!!!! You can see the new sketch here. I really went out of the box with this one, channeling a few of my favorite scrappers (Heidi Kelley, Miae Rowe, Melissa Williams...)
I set out to create my own background on a piece of white cardstock using a couple of template/stencils by Crafter's Workshop and Plaid, some Glimmer Mist, and modeling paste. I started out by using a cheetah print and some golden Glimmer Mist. After it was dry, I edged the pattern with marker. Then, I used a brick template and modeling paste mixed with Glimmer Mist. I glopped it on and let it dry. I LOVE how this turned out!! I love the texture, and the Glimmer Mist gave it a subtle shine that's pretty cool, too. I finished it off with bunches of fun washi tape, and a hand drawn simple title.

I love it! The combination of techniques is really fun. I'm going to have to try mixing templates one of these times!
