Come and meet our new DT member......

Karen Willaims

Here's some information on Karen.......

My bio
I am a 36 year old mother of three who has been scrapbooking since the birth of my daughter three and half years ago ( Nancy thinks the half is very important). Originally from the UK, I am currently living in the Netherlands, hence my new found SAHM status, ( In the UK I was a teacher). I like simple scrapping, half an hour is my average time on a LO, and with three children in the house you can understand why. I set myself the challenge of making 365 LOs this year, I stopped count a month ago when I got to 370!
I love chocolate, pizza boxes from the postman, day trips to Amsterdam, shoes, crime novels, knitting, CSI on TV and baking.
I hate having my hair cut, bananas, that I still bite my nails, and my oven. ( the oven is a long story)

Here are some of Karen's favourtie layouts.....

10 Things I hate


You give my world color
