So happy to have Karen Tarpley as a guest designer drawn from amongst our participants in our December 2012 challenge. Please welcome Karen!!!
My name is Karen Tarpley and I am a former teacher, turned stay at home mom and now part-time professional photographer. I picked up photography as a hobby back in the days of film and started scrapbooking to find a way to display all of my prints other than in frames. Back then, it seemed our only embellishments were stickers and diecuts! I discovered the online community of scrapbooking about 4 years ago and it has reignited my love of scrapbooking (OK, so the two princesses are partly to blame for that, too). I also picked up the hobby of photography again (but digital format now) and turned the hobby into a business a little over a year ago. When asked to scrap about my passion, I immediately knew which pictures I would use. It's not often I take my girls on our own location photo shoots, but when I do, I love the results! My girls, photography and scrapbooking - all my passions :) You can follow my crafting adventures at www.paisleypetalsblog.blogspot.com.
Keep your eyes on this blog! - We will soon announce our featured guest designer for February!!
