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. :)

Holiday Dress Up Glamour with New Basic Grey! **Flamingo Scraps**

I've been playing with the new Basic Grey 25th and Pine! I love all the little extras that you can get for this collection. The wood veneers and the wax seals are super fun!

I started with a piece of Heidi Swapp color resist paper (that you may find in your Flamingo Scraps Warehouse combination box!) splattered with some Heidi Swapp Color Shine in Sweet Cherry. I started layering some of the Die Cuts & Transparencies with the Printed Chipboard Shapes and Wood Veneer Ornaments.

I scattered a few more of the elements about the page, added some bling and some old Basic Grey chipboard letters.

Last, I added a wood veneer piece to add the date, and colored one of the nifty Wax Seals with plain old markers.

Thanks for visiting!
