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.

Happy 13th

I printed this picture of me and my son a couple of months ago, it's from his 13th birthday, but never used it. I was trying to decide which picture to scrapbook today and pick it up, again. This time, it was the pecfect picture for the layout I had in mind. I always have so much fun with layouts, but with making card most of the time, the layouts sort of get put on the back burner. Well, I'm in a layout mood, so you all should be seeing many more.

Brother, I miss you

I have a brother in Iraq, a twin brother to be exact, and boy do I miss him. Though we talk several times a week, there's nothing like having him at home. The other night, after I finished talking with him, I was missing him so much, I decided to make him a card and mail it the next day. He'll enjoy the card, though he won't admit it. I hope it brightens his day, the same way hearing his voice brightens mine.

A Thanksgiving Thank You

One of my girlfriends, Nancy, makes the best yeast rolls and her special punch. Each year at Thanksgiving, she sends my family a pan or two of the wonderful rolls. We generally start eating them in the morning, as we're preparing Thanksgiving dinner. We tried to save some of the dinner, but it's not easy. I wanted her to know just how much we appreciate her act of kindness and labor of love, so I do what I do as a labor of love, I created a card. I hope it touches her heart, the way her gift touched our hearts.

Running late for a birthday

I was late making this birthday card, but got it down and in the mail the day after the big day. Sorry. Sometimes I get stuck on a certain paper or papers, thus the case with these papers. I used them for a layout and just loved them, so I wanted to use them again on a special card. This card is for one of the ladies that teach my Sunday School class. I hope that she enjoyed it and had a wonderful birthday.
