Hi there. I'm a WAHM (work at home mom) so I get the best of both worlds - a career and flexibility to volunteer at school but most importantly, I am home every morning and afternoon when the kids get home from school. My hubby and I have three wonderful children - David 15, Rheagan 8 and Reese 3.


I've been documenting memories since I can remember but became obsessed with it in 2010. My style is eclectic a.k.a random. I have no other way to describe my style because I feel that if I do I will limit myself. Instead, I go where the pictures, paper and embellishments take me. Sometimes it involves lots of layering and sometimes I go for clean & simple. In saying that, I have seen a pattern: lots of color, paint and/or misting, hand or machine stitching and I fussy cutting any chance I get. My go-to projects are layout but I try to mix in cards and altered projects as often as I can. You can find my work on my blog, The Spotted Leopard.

A few more things about me:
· I’m an only child with terrific parents and a very close extended family.
· I’m a native Texan and have lived here all my life but you won’t find country on my SUV’s pre-sets. Don’t get me wrong – I love Willie and Waylon and the boys – classic country, but I prefer rock, which leads to this...
· I’m a huge Rob Thomas / Matchbox Twenty music fan – their music touches my soul.
· I’m quite adventurous – kayaking in crocodile infested waters, roller coasters, snow/water skiing and scuba diving (I’ve encountered hammerhead and nurse sharks among other creatures down there). I love a thrill! There's more I'd love to try, like skydiving, but won't now that I have kids. Too risky!

Thanks for taking the time to get to know me. I am so excited to share my scrappy obsession with you this week. I hope I can inspire you!
