I am lucky to have been chosen as a swanky girl. My layout features my darling daughter and her many faces. I took all the pictures within 5 minutes. When I saw the pictures, I was amazed by how many different looks she had given me. I than had fun and labeled all the pics. I used the Happy Everything Collection Beautiful and celebrate papers. This layout was simple I just cut out the design from the Beautiful paper mounted it on the pink bazzil heart paper and layered on black bling. I added some stickles to the edges. The font is from American Crafts.
Thank you for looking

I am a mom to 4. I wish I could scrapbook instead of sleep… I think sleeping is a big waste of time! I am a Zumba Certified Instructor and also teach Sculpt, Boot Camp, Yoga and Kickbox classes. I love sushi, scrapbooking, reality TV, the color pink, and everything fluffy, frilly, shimmery and sparkly!
Life can sure get hectic sometimes but I thrive on adventure and chaos and this hobby is just what I need to wind down and remind me of what is important. To relax and take my mind off of what my next scrapbooking project will be, I love playing with my camera and photographing tiny moments and details that will help me preserve all of these wonderful memories in my life. Some may say I’m obsessed with this hobby, but it is simply a part of my everyday life, much like shopping, lounging by the pool, my obsession with blogs, and my never ending craving for Starbucks coffee!
I am so fortunate and honored to be a part of the Urban Swank design team and I can’t wait to be inspired, and to inspire all of you with their wonderful products! I love what this industry has brought to my life and I am so excited to start this next journey with you all!
My husband and I have 3 children who are grown, 2 are in college. We have no grandchildren, but the pet population just increased by one. My son brought his dog home which brings the pet population to 6 dogs ( 4 bassetts, 3 labs) 1 cat, 1 bird. Two of the dogs belong to my husband and I.
