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. :)

Baby in Fancy Pants

Have I ever mentioned that every time my husband hears me mention Fancy Pants he puts on his little girl voice and sings "Fancy Pants Unicorn, Fancy Pants Unicorn."  It was from some random cartoon we watched with the girls years ago, and it's stuck in his head.  Fancy Pants and Unicorns are forever linked in my head!

I've got another blast-from-the-past layout for you today.
This little cutie is now 10 years old, and about 4" shorter than moi. She's still that cute, though. ;)
I started with a sheet of kraft paper. I love the Fancy Pants Corrugated Paper, and decided to play with its texture a bit more by ripping it. LOVE! I have really been into layering lately, and used a few sheets from the Fancy Pants Collecting Moments 6x6 Paper Pad and the coordinating Brag Pad. I kept on with my ripping theme for one of the lower layer pieces. I liked how the color tied in with the ripped corrugated (see how I did that?) ;) All of the unripped paper edges were inked with a medium gray chalk pad.

(omg. Would you look at that baby face??)
I add some wood embellishments from Prima, Maya Road, Cosmo Cricket, and some teeny stars from my stash. I completed the layout with a gorgeous oval frame (Webster's Pages, something you might find in a Flamingo Scraps Combination or Embellishment Warehouse Box!) and some Thickers from my stash.
Thanks for looking, and I'll see you next time!
