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. :)

Simple Sketches #1

Simple Sketches has revealed the first sketch!  Team A's versions of it are posted, and I would like to share my take on it :)

This uses Basic Grey's Hipster.  I have to admit that I love to use a collection because it makes the process so much faster for me--I spend FOREVER trying to find the papers and embellishments that I want otherwise!  I used some Glitz background/distress stamps and Tim Holtz stamps with Distress Ink on some of the papers and in the corners of the background. 

And yes, my dog *IS* a bad dog.  But we love her anyway.  :)
