Houston, Tx, United States
Hi. Welcome to my site; my name is Karen. I'm an avid scrap-booker, card-maker, and paper-crafter. I have been scrapbooking for about 12 years and I am just as excited now as when I first started. Scrapbooking is the instrument I use to record some of the greatest and most special moments of my family’s life. I love buying patterned paper, ribbon and embellishments, taking pictures of my son, teaching scrapbooking and hosting workshops. This hobby continues to be an obsession for me and it continues to challenge me to be a better scrapper. I love the escape that scrapbooking affords me and the fun it has brought into my world. I have one child, a son; he's 15 years old and he is my favorite scrapbook subject. I hope that you enjoyed my site and will visit again soon.

Valentine's with Flowers

Say it with flowers; pink flowers on top of brown and blue.

Criss Cross Valentine

I absolutely love black and white and I thought it would be fun to use those colors for Valentine's Day. I threw in some magenta for a splash of colors and I think it turned out beautiful.

Valentine - Black & Grey

Valentine's Day is on it's way and what better way to say Happy Valentine's Day, then with a romantic card.

Romantic Challenge

Challenge #4 was to create a 5 x 7 romantic card. I was stumped for most of the challenge period, but as I was looking through a stack of pattern paper, I came across this paper I'd been wanting to use. Each time I picked the paper up, nothing came to mind, but I kept picking it up. Well, this time something came to mind and I like the way it turned out. I wanted to add ribbon, one of my scrapbooking favorites, but I also wanted to keep it simple.

Happy New Year

This is my 3rd challenge card. Carol issued this challenge; to do a 9.25 x 4 New Year's card and I have to tell you, it was really a challenge. I don't generally do this size card, but once I got started, I really enjoyed it. I hope that you'll enjoy it also.
