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.

Gratitude. That word expresses one of the emotions I feel when I see my son and my dad together. They have such a wonderful relationship. I have been trying to scrap this photo of them from Father's Day weekend 2008, for a while, but I just wasn't feeling it, until I saw this transparency that read Gratitude. Because the transparency has a fall theme, I thought I'd build the layout around it. The big flower is a chipboard flower that I misted with Tattered Angels, then painted the edges with one of the new Smooch paints. I also painted the edges of the leaves. Gotta say that I love this new paint.
