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!

I have had the "Smile!" cut-out in my stash for quite a while now, and had tried a few times to incorporate it into scrap layouts and other projects, but it wasn't until I bought some green and red Copics in "softer" colours, that I paired it up with a light peppermint patterned paper and ribbon and then coloured this stamp accordingly. And I love the result, although not really captured that well in a photo.
Copics used:
Face/hair - E00, E31, E33, E51, E53
Clothes - G00, G12, G21, RV000, RV02, RV10, BV00
Misc. - Y15, Y17, Y19, V12,V15, V17, G02, G12, G24
I would like to enter this card in the online challenge this week at Southern Girl's Challenge No.9 "Anything Goes"

Thanks for having a look at my blog!
