We welcome our March guest designer ...

Karen McLaughlin, from the beautiful Central Coast.  I love the page she has done for us, incorporating a dog theme and a lovely quote to which we can probably all relate, no matter what our pet of choice.

My name is Karen McLaughlin and I live on the Central Coast of New South Wales, Australia which is a 90 minute drive North of Sydney. I am a wife to a wonderful husband who is very supportive of my scrapbooking and a mother of two - a 22 year old girl and a 17 year old boy. I began my scrapbook journey around 11 years ago and I mainly scrapbook about my family. I love to create and experiment with many different mediums and techniques. I also love using lots of flowers. One of the main reasons I started scrapbooking was to preserve memories and photos for my children. My style is always evolving and that is one of the things I love about scrapbooking.
