SISTER Sunday - May 25th

Please help us welcome our Sister of the Week --
Karen Ordway!!

Tell us about your family: I have been married for 7 years to Joe- who shakes his head at the size of my stash but likes the end result- scrapbook layouts galore!

How/Why did you start scrapbooking? My sister hosted a CM party and then a few college girlfriends, my sister, and I started having monthly potluck crops.

How long have you been scrapbooking? 10 years

What is it about scrapbooking that you really love? I love preserving photos and stories; but, I also just love having the creative outlet – esp since my job is very analytical.

How many hours a week do you scrapbook? 2-7

How long does it take you to complete a layout? Anywhere between 30 minutes to 2 hours

Where do you get your inspiration? Mostly from the pics I scrap. While I visit a ton of blogs and subscribe to CK and MM magazines, I don’t save layouts or refer to sketches often. I always thing I will scraplift some LO that I love but have never actually consciously done so :P I do sometimes get inspired by a friend’s LO at a crop and lift some aspect of it.
Here is Karen's layout for Challenge 55 - scrap those silly photos :-)


Karen's ScrapFriends Gallery

and her blog - A Scraptastic Life

If you stop by her blog, leave a message and let her know you were there :-)

Tomorrow we'll be posting our next challenge. Submit your layout and YOU could be our next sister, and also have a chance to win a terrific prize from our sponsor this month!
