Get to know your Sparklers / SMS

Hello everyone!! 
I'm excited to share a little get to know you along with the rest of the Sparklers. I thought I would share this layout that I created a while back using SMS products.  I love how the cork brought more texture to the layout, just like the sequins did and a bit of bling! lol You can do so much with them! Make shaker pockets, add the bling factor, texture for the layouts, you can make little decorative pockets like I did here with a glassin baggy. Love it all and there are so many possibilities. 

Ok so to get to know me a bit better... I have been scrapbooking since I was 9 years old, so I've been scrapping for about 22 years. And I still love it! I am married and have 6 kids, yes 6. 2 boys and 4 girls. So it can be a little hectic around here but I wouldn't have it any other way! With all these kiddos I always have something new to scrapbook to, so another plus to having a big family! lol I grew up in Alaska and have lived in every A state except for Arizona, but I have visited there. I have managed to get some of my kids into scrapbooking already too, they boys being older, they dont seem to want to do it as much but they still play along with me at times. Everyone in our house loves something artsy. We all paint and draw and I love that there is always that creative outlet for them and me, but its a pain to try and keep them out of my scrappy goodness! lol
When it comes to what you can expect of me with SMS, right now I'm going to be doing a blog post 3 times a month or more with sketch on Saturdays. I love sketches and have so many pinned on Pinterest that I think this will be fun for me! I hope you enjoy sketches too and will play along with me!!

I thought I'd share with you what I got in my 1st design team package!! And man, oh man is everything so beautiful!! Do you know how hard it is not to use everything all at once!! lol

Oh did I mention that Jody, The owner of Spiegelmomscraps, is also giving away a $20 Gift Card for one ransom commenter??Yep, she sure is!! How awesome is that??!!? Well follow along and get to know the rest of the Sparkles and comment away and you may just win it!! And oh man are there so many beautiful things you could get!!
