Short bio: I have the distinct honor of being a mom to 4, wife to a hottie, teammate to some epic roller derby chicks, loving owner of a new pup & supposedly master of my own domain. Our loud, but happy, home is in Lexington, KY where the grass is always bluer. I would describe my scrapbooking style as bright, bold, and artsy fartsy, just like me!

Favorite thing to scrap: Everyday moments.

Favorite American Crafts product: Embellishments are my fav. Maybe thats cheating because it involves all of the bits and flair and die cuts and ribbon, etc. There are so many ways to use these things, I can't get enough!

5 fun facts:

1. At any given time I will have up to 5 lists going. Sometimes I even write, "Make a list for…." on my to-do list. It's a little out of hand.

2. I have memorized every line in Pitch Perfect. (ok, not really, but I'm pretty close!)

3. No one, I repeat no one, can "car" dance better than I do! Turn it up – this is my jam!!! (btw, every song happens to be my jam)

4. I am in romantic love with Slurpees – maybe an overstatement, but you get it.

5. I have made a living as a paid artist & being creative moves my soul.

"It's rare that I create a layout about myself, but I'm trying to be better about this. Sometimes the best way to go about it is to pick a couple of photos and pair it with some 'here and now' kind of journaling. Viola! Quick, painless, and I am accounted for in my families album."
