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!

Cupcake Craft Challenge

Hi everyone!

I am entering this card in Cupcake Craft Challenge No. 123 "White is White", and although the card seems simple, it was actually really hard to get "white" papers, card stock, ribbon etc that were all the same shade of white! I also added a journal tag from the Kaisercraft English Rose collection - I really, really love this range, and seem to be including it a lot lately! For something different, I printed off a "Congratulations" tag - so this card can be used for a wedding or engagement. I have also done matching cards with "Forever" and "Celebrate" as I liked the way this one turned out. This card is also a first for me in that I have not added any elements using my Copic markers!

Thanks for looking! xoxox
