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. :)

I've been hoarding this set of Canvas Corp banners for months, waiting for the right layout to use them on. I found this photo of my oldest (was she really this little?), paired it with a Scarlet Lime kit and a LCOM sketch, and the banners just begged to be used :)
The banners were stamped with Distress Ink and some Glitz distressing stamps. I love love love how this turned out :)
This photo is really special; with the age difference between my girls, they don't always get along. The baby generally adores her big sister, but big sister often can't be bothered. I love these moments when they get along and have fun with each other. This layout was a lift from a layout I saw on scrapbook.com; you can see the original here.
