Hi everyone!

My name is Karen, I live on the (sometimes) sunny NSW Central Coast, have a partner who has three great kids, have 4 1/2 dogs (share one with the partner), and am discovering the world of paper crafts and scrapbooking!

Started scrapbooking approx 5 yr ago, and have realised it's an ever evolving craft ... so many new things, techniques etc coming out all the time - it's hard to keep up! For example, recently discovered Copic markers - oh what fun we are having now! As a consequence, my house is always one of organised chaos lol.

I fund my hobbies (or habits, I haven't decided which yet) working as a pet groomer here on the coast, which also caters for my love of animals. I have been showing dogs since I was 8 yr old, and will never be with a canine companion. Next year, hopefully one of the girls will be having puppies - a whole new subject to scrap!

Lollipop Ladies Challenge #9

This fortnight's challenge theme is "Chocolate Swirls", with delicious choccie cupcakes as our inspiration, with beautiful swirls! I have a lovely digi stamp, "Cupcake Cherrie" and thought she would be perfect! I used Bazzill Bling and patterned paper from my stash, Kaisercraft pearls for bling, Dawn Lewis Imagery crochet flower, and I coloured Cherrie with Copic markers.
