Woooooohooooo :)
I am SO thrilled that I was chosen to be a part of the Spring DT over at 2Sketches4You!!

I've gotten a number of new hits so I thought I'd share a bit about myself for any new readers...

I'm a SAHM to my two little boys, Isaiah & Griffin. They keep me on me toes! I also have a smart & handsome husband who supports my paper addiction. Well, for the most part... lol

I usually just post my cards, and some of my photography here... I went to photography school way back in 2001/2002. I learned on film, and sorely miss it, but it's just too expensive to shoot! I'm no expert when it comes to digital though... I still have so much to learn. And while I am most comfortable shooting manually, every once in a blue moon I'm shoot a pic or two in Auto, usually with the disclaimer that it's a "snapshot". Which sometimes life just calls for. :p
I don't shoot professionally, but I do enjoy taking photo's of my friends and family so I'm sure that will pop up every now and then.

Also, I get asked quite often about the Lulu/Laura thing. So I'll set that straight too.. hehe

My name is Laura, however years ago (9?) my Father-inlaw started calling me Lulu for some random reason. It totally stuck! My DH and his side of the family usually refer to me as Lulu. But my own family does not. It's kind of confusing. So if you meet me in person you will probably know me as Laura, but online and with my DH & his family I guess I prefer Lulu.

But either way, there you have it!

Oh, and here are my cards I made for the DT Call... :)

Loved your cards Lulu & can't wait to work w/you these next 3 months. Love the story of your nickname. My father christened me w/a nickname @ birth, so my family & school friends call me by that name & the in-laws by my birth name!!

Laura, Lulu, whatever :) CONGRATS!!! Your work is awesome and I cannot wait to see what you create each week! I hope to get to know you a little better too through the upcoming three months!

We might have a Lulu too... we'll see. Putting names on a list and thinking them twice for our upcoming little girl.

Oh, I love being green too and not the color :)
