mother/daughter guest designers september 2015 ...

So thrilled to have Karen B and her daughter Jasmine as guest designers for September :)

Hello!  I love playing along with Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge, so I was thrilled to be asked to join you as a guest designer this month.  A little about me:  My name is Karen, and I live in a quiet, semi-rural area of southeast Queensland, Australia, with my husband and daughter.  We share our property with our pet dog and an assortment of ducks and chickens.  My love of all things creative started when I was very young. For the past 10+ years I've been somewhat obsessed with scrapbooking, (although I still can't define "my style".). I enjoy camping and hiking, and I have a weakness for secondhand bookstores and quirky cafes.
My layout:  My layout is about Jasmine's first day of high school in 2013 - a new stage of life for her, but also a new beginning for me.  I have some hidden journalling on the back of the layout to record my thoughts as the parent of an almost-teenager, the milestones she has reached, and how she is growing up way too fast!

Jasmine is 14 years old, and has always enjoyed making things.  In recent years she has been very busy at high school, where her favourite subjects are home economics and art.  She loves to try new things and that often means she has quite a number of unfinished projects tucked away somewhere!  She recently started her first part-time job, as a retail attendant at a fabric and craft store - how perfect is that?

Jasmine's layout:  One of Jasmine's Christmas presents last year was a book about Zentangling and a set of art pens.  She loves her new hobby and recently started experimenting with drawing on ceramics.

 Loving your work ladies! You have brightened my day!


  1. Oh! This is FABULOUS! Love the Mum-daughter thing....my Mum & I both scrap. Mind you, we're both slightly [a lot] older!!! Great pages, too:):)

  2. Welcome Karen and Jasmine , Both so very talented, How cool is that to share a passion for creating. Sounds like a lovely life on the property with your animals. A perfect job indeed for Jasmine. Love both these layouts and both so different. One soft and on bold
