Michelle Houghton - Guest Designer

Happy Thursday!! I am excited to introduce Michelle Houghton as this week's guest designer! She has created a beautiful card and scrapbook page to share with us. 

But, first let's get to know Michelle a little bit better....

Hi! Michelle Houghton here, I am a wife to an amazing husband and mother of two beautiful girls in Iowa.  I am primarily a stay at home Mom but I teach aerobics at our local YMCA and teach online doodling and Copic classes for a site called Get It Scrapped.   In my life before motherhood I was an art teacher and I love continuing  to share my art through scrapbooking techniques.  I have been scrapbooking for about 14 years and coloring with Copic markers for about one year.  When I first tried Copics I fell in love and have since gotten my Certification and Intermediate Certification in them as well.  When the DT gals asked me to color a mermaid for this week I could not decide if I should go sultry or cute so I did one of both! 
I want to apologize for not being around very much recently but I have been typing and photographing art work for my newest class in Copic Coloring for Get It Scrapped.  But, by the time this is posted I should be done and my editor should be putting the final touches on it!  I can let you in on a little secret about the class, Michelle Perkett is one of the featured artists and I will be giving a step by step for coloring one of her amazing images!  
Thanks so much for inviting me to come play this week!  If you would like to see more of my work or hear more about the Copic class my blog is

Thanks Michelle, the class sounds like a lot of fun!
