Day 7

Hi everyone!! Are you loving this? I am so enjoying reading about all the team members and seeing everyone's fabulous sketches everyday! Thanks for all the inspiration, girls!!

My name is Amanda. I have been married to my wonderful husband, Kevin, for almost 7 years. I am a SAHM to our 3 kids: Riley, 41/2, Kieran, 3 and Bridget 16 months. I am busy to say the least! Thankfully, Kevin is a wonderful hands-on dad and we live close to most of our family. I am grateful to have such a wonderful support system.

I have been scrapbooking for about four years. It started out as a way to document the life of my eldest son, but quickly turned into a passion. I love that it is a way to tell my family's story but also serves as my creative outlet. I have always enjoyed writing, crafting and photography and love that scrapping allows me to combine them! On particularly crazy days, I am thankful to have a hobby that I am so passionate about...one that allows me to escape for awhile and enjoy time creating. I enjoy trying many different things when I scrap...I love creating a page with clean lines one day and then trying something shabby chic the next. My kids and nieces/nephews give me tons of inspiration and great pictures to work with...I many never catch up, lol!

I have been fortunate to be on several design teams over the past couple of years. I love that I am able to inspire others and my scrapbooking has really grown thanks to these experiences. I am so excited to be part of the LCOM sketch DT!! These girls are all wonderfully talented and I'm honoured to get to work with them!

Please, drop by my blog here :)

Here is my sketch for today:

And here's my take on it. These are two of my beautiful nieces:

Have a great day and be sure to check in with us again tomorrow!
