Hi! My name is Lisa Peeples and I was super excited to be invited to guest design for Simple Sketches. Melissa is a friend that I met online through our passion for scrapping and I have loved using her sketches. I started scrapbooking shortly after my oldest son was born 16 years ago. My style has definitely evolved over the years. I would classify myself as having mostly a clean, simple style. I like trying my hand at new techniques and love to use all kinds of different embellishments, inks and my new favorite, washi tape. I have recently delved into the mixed media world and am trying to build my confidence in off the page projects. It's funny that I have never seen myself as having any artistic talent whatsoever and am only recently seeing that I can push myself to express my creativity in different ways. When I am not scrapbooking I am very busy being a wife to my sweet husband David. We just celebrated twenty years this last summer. I am also a mother to Nathan, who is turning sixteen on Monday and beginning to drive (YIKES!) and Chris, my fourteen year old who adds humor to our lives in droves. I have stayed home with them since Nathan was born and have only recently began to substitute teach a few days a week. I love to cook and am lucky enough to have a son who enjoys cooking and watching Food Network with me. I would love for you to take time to visit my blog at www.snappinandscrappin.blogspot.com.
And without further adieu, here is sketch 17 and all of the beautiful pages it inspired!
