My 2 beautiful grandchildren's holiday photo.

I started selecting the first vertical row on the board.
Next, I created a mixed media background. Then
applied 5+ pattern paper layers and twine along the top.


Finally adding white chalk mist, journal, and floral cluster.
All finished!

2017 SOS DT Introduction

I love being on this awesome SOS design team. 
I started scrapbooking in 2008 when I viewed a friends work. "I've got to do this" was my immediate thought. My passion quickly turned into addiction for this type of artistry and I never looked back.  I am very passionate of this hobby. It's not just about creating albums but it is a work of art. I love taking pictures to use to document life. Thus, here I am today enjoying my passion as therapy and inspiration to others. I enjoy each day filled with being inspired, creating, providing inspiration through my work and treasuring the memories. 
I love the art of scrapbooking, paper crafting, and mixed media.
Love cardmaking, digi image coloring using alcohol makers. altered art, journals/planners, and chipboard. My style has been described as detailed, beautiful, and multifaceted.
I like to take the viewer on a unforgettable visual journey. 


SEE YA SOON!!!!
God Bless Always & Huggies!
