Love Is Unconditional!

A great photoshoot with my daughter turned out these awesome photos! Mostly Basic Grey papers. I love stitching on my layouts but don't have a sewing machine so I do it all by hand but I think it adds character anyway.

Thank {Full}

My daughters first thanksgiving with her "Puppa" in 2008, she was just a couple of weeks old in this photo and it is a very precious photo to me. This is my husbands grandfather and he has been very ill this past year so I have been trying to cherish every memory and moment made with him! New Making Memories Noteworthy paper and Creative Imaginations Die-Cut paper.

The Fright Night Princess

My daughter Destiny in a fabulous dress my mother made for her! Creative Imaginations papers and overlay used here and I made my own chipboard using making memories stamps and paint!

Butterfly Inchies!

This cool little project was inspired by a forum challenge where you use 1X1 pieces of paper as your base and the possibilities are limitless! I chose butterflies as I do for a lot of things lol. I think I will put these is a simple antiqued white frame and hang it in my daughters room.

I Love Tim Holtz!

This whole project was made using just one pack of Tim Holtz Grungeboard! The frame was just $2.00 at Wal mart! Love it!

Jeepers Creepers

This was from a challenge on the forums. We don't often scrap ourselves but how great will one of these layouts be for our children to look back on? Our task was to scrap something that made us unique and I chose my green eyes! I used lots of Daisy D's paper and Marah Johnson flower brads. I painted on some couregated cardboard and used it as a stamp for a background to lay my photo on. I stamped my own frame onto a transparancy Added some prima paper and prima fancy flowers and used some Tim Holtz inks. Again I used Basic Grey Mellow Letter Stickers.

Birthday Girl

My daughter Destiny turning 3! The circle is cut from making memoris paper and the butterflies are traced from Heidi Swapp ghost butterflies and cut from the same making memories line of papers. I painted some Basic Grey Mellow stickers pink and used numbers from a colorbok chipboard pack. And of course prima flowers and say it in crystals!


This Layout is one of the first ones that I was proud of! This is my daughter Destiny at a friends wedding in 2004. Mostly Jenni Bowlin papers. The butterflies are all hand drawn and cut and inked with colorbox cat eye chalks. I used Fiskars templates to make my frame and crackle painted the title! Thank you so much for taking a look!

An Introduction to what I do!

I love to create intricate pieces of paper art and have decided to share my techniques and steps with all of you if you are interested! I will probably often just add in family updates as well to show off my three pride and joys! I hope you will join me! To start off I will add some archives of my work.
