super card saturday

well its another round of design team reveal's and a special guest designer, i hope you enjoy these cards as much as i did!

our guest dt this week is karen!

My name is Karen Brooks, I’m 36, a wife, mom, pet parent, college gal, papercrafter and all around goofball who typically goes by the username of KarenB or craf_t_scrapper on message boards.

My first scrapbooking adventure was in 1989/1990 in the form of my senior book and when I look back now I wonder what the heck was I thinking. In 1992 with the birth of my daughter I tried to fancy up the photo albums w/chat bubbles and stickers and construction paper – again, what was I thinking. From 1992 to 2002 I dabbled around in different types of papercrafting but not serious scrapbooking. In 2002 a dear friend of mine gave me a bridal shower gift basket FULL of pretty papers, ribbons, flowers and what knot and I was curious what it all was. She showed me her albums and that was all it took – there has been no looking back.

I do not scrap in chronological order – if I did I would probably shock everyone. You can find me in my scrappy hole going through pictures from when my parents were kids all the way to current pictures of my kids and when one jumps out I scrap it. My passion in papercrafting though is card making. I love the thought of creating a small work of art that will hopefully brighten someone’s day when they receive it.

I am so honored that Renee asked me to guest DT for the month of November here at Let’s Scrap and enjoyed the sketch she provided me to work from tremendously!!! Thanks a lot for taking the time to read a little about me!!!! Happy scrappin’ all!!!
