A layout with black and white photos.

WOW! It's been awhile since I posted! I've been pretty busy. Seems like I'm always busy. But I like it like that! I've been working on a couple scrapbook pages for contests and I found this fun scrapbook site. It's Paper popsicles and their having a design team call. So I've been trying to get some pages done for that.

I figured I would show a layout I did for my mom as a Christmas present. I put it in a scrapbook frame so she could hang it on the wall....I'm very pleased with the results! Yes, that fat bald baby is me with my brother.

The Dalmatian is Skeeter. He was my inspiration when I started back at drawing in 1996. Unfortunatly even the most devoted companions succumb to age. But great memories, alot of photos and some drawings will always bring a smile to my face!

a page about mud!

This is a page I did for a contest with KMA. Awesome bunch of ladies and the contest was alot of fun! This is one of my favorites out of the 6 layouts we did. It was a 6 week contest and each week was a different challenge. Even though I didn't win I enjoyed the competition and it made me try different things in my scrapbook I probably wouldn't have tried. I also got to know a great bunch of ladies and still visit the forum to check out new contest and see what everyones up to.

Hi from my world! I'm starting this blog to show my work. I'm an artist and an avid scrapbooker. I hope one day to combine these loves as a career!
This is Ali.
She's a pet portrait I did just before Christmas. I had the pleasure of meeting her owner and photographing Ali to draw from. They both were wonderful and I enjoyed working with them.
I use colored pencils on canson paper. I love the sharpness and the detail I get with pencils.
