Not Your Typical Domestic Godess...

I am not one to do layouts about myself unless I have to for an assignment...but this time I decided to do just that! I am glad I did because I also have my own story and every now and again I want to tell it. Yep, I am a stay at home mom, who helps with my in-laws business, is a total soccer mom, and wife to a wonderful hubby. But I have done things that make me special and every now and again it helps me remember that I am me and not just a mom and wife.

I pulled out tons of color for this layout...I loved the base of black and white but used several colors of bling from Want2Scrap and a variety of fun papers.

I also just adore the pearls from Want2Scrap. I love that they come in several sizes in each pack and I don't have to be stingy because there is so many in every package.

Can't go wrong with the gems either...I actually just used gems to cover circles of the same color that were on the pattern paper...what a great way to add texture and shine...and no drying time!

Well thanks for letting me share a little about myself!

I also want to let you know that Want2Scrap is going to be in Portland, Oregon this coming weekend...March 25-26th for the Creating Keepsakes Convention. I love the CK Conventions...whenever they come to town it is a retail therapy weekend for me so be sure to get your scrap shopping done in Portland this weekend!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
