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.

1st Birthday

My nephew, Jeremiah, is turning 1. Where did the time go? I remember the day he was born, we all rushed up to the hospital to see him. He was so tiny and now, just one year later, he has touched my heart and won me over with his beautiful bright eyes and a dazzling, 4-teeth smile.


My Superstar

I enjoyed making lunchbox cards for my son, I think it brightens his day at school. Though he's 11 now, he still likes finding little surprises in his lunchbox. He'll usually come home and say something like "I found the card you made for me, it was pretty cool. Thanks mom." Hearing him say that melts my heart because I know in a couple of years, I won't be very "cool".

Dream Maker

This challenge was a bit interesting because we were asked to create a project around one of our favorite songs from the 1970's; well my favorite song back that many years ago was Dream Maker by Rick James. Once I read the challenge guidelins, I knew immediately which song I'd use and I just needed to get a picture of my son, while asleep. This layout was a perfect way to commemorate a conversation Josh and I had about 2 weeks ago. He was sharing a dream he'd had with me, the dream was regarding his life as an adult. It was a very detailed dream and he was so serious when relaying this to me and mapping out his life for the future.
