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 #12 Reveal

I think my favorite part of being on a sketch team is seeing the many ways each sketch can be used.  I love reveals!
That being said, Sketch #12 is now live on the Simple Sketches blog, and here's my take on it:
I used a Crafter's Workshop 6x6 brick template with some modeling paste mixed with brown paint for my background.  There are some woven strips of pp behind the bricks, and I love how they peek out.  I pop-dotted the photos (regular adhesive wasn't going to work on top of that thick modeling paste!).  I added a few Heidi Swapp rub-ons and stickers (the words and hearts).  I needed a bit more color, so popped in a few strips of washi tape and painted my wooden title letters red.
Please share your take on Melissa's sketch, I would love to see what you've done with it.  Until next time!

Absolutely love it!! I still haven't tried the modeling paste and I want to so badly. Love how it makes the brick wall look here.
